Only 37 players remain in the hunt to become the 2020 Irish Poker Masters Main Event champion, an accolade that comes with a huge €215,163 cash prize.

Those 37 players return to the action from 19:05 GMT on December 15. They’ll lock horns, butt heads and run audacious bluffs until only nine of them have chips in front of them. All this and more takes place under the watchful eyes of our excellent partypoker TV Twitch commentary team.

Irish Poker Masters Main Event Twitch Coverage

Our amazing coverage goes live from 19:30 GMT on December 15 when Day 3 of the IPM Main Event is underway. James Dempsey and Henry Kilbane will provide their usual entertaining commentary and analysis throughout. Irish legend Fintan Gavin is set to join them in the commentary booth and he’s always bags of fun.

This talented trio will be with you right until the 10th place finishers is determined and the official final table set. Which nine partypoker players will reach that final table? We don’t have long to wait to find out.

Which Players Are Vying For a Seat at the Final Table?

The 2018 MILLIONS Online champion Manuel Ruivo is the man at the top of the chip counts when the cards are back in the air on Day 3 of the Irish Poker Masters Main Event.

Ruivo returns to his seat with a tournament-leading stack of 21,837,909 chips, four-million more than any of the other players. Ruivo’s victory in the 2018 MILLIONS Online bagged him a huge $2,329,943 after a heads-up deal with Pim de Goede. While Ruivo won’t win as much as he did in that event, a prize in excess of €210,000 is not to be sniffed at.

Some of the world’s most recognisable names are still in with a legitimate chance of winning this tournament.

Kenny Hallaert is no stranger to running deep in major events. The UK-based Belgian has more than $10 million in winnings from online and live poker tournaments. Hallaert sits down tonight with 15,196,728 chips, enough for fourth place at the restart.

Also in the top 10 are the likes of Sebastian Sikorski, who you may better know as “p0cket00” if you follow online poker tournaments, high stakes specialist Samuel Vousden, and MILLIONS South America champion Marty Mathis.

Lurking outside the top 10 are such luminaries as Will Kassouf, Conor Beresford, WPTWOC Mix-Max champion Andrey Kotelnikov, and New Zealand’s David Yan.

It’s in 16th place you find Team partypoker’s Ludovic Geilich,

Others to look out for during our Twitch stream include Christoph Vogelsang, Dantes Fernandes and the shortest stack in the tournament that belongs to Adrian Mateos.
