  1. Anton Suarez usually makes his living playing cash games live or online. For the last five days, however, the Swedish poker pro has been unable to do so as he splashed around on the tournament side. He'll be able to get back to his day job on Monday, however, and he'll have an extra $1,000,000 to work with after beating out the 529 other players to win the partypoker MILLIONS UK Main Event. While 12 players returned for the final day, the final table actually started eight-handed after Alex Lindop busted in 10th and Jamie O'Connor went out in ninth on the same hand. Maria Lampropulos, who won the inaugural partypoker MILLIONS at Dusk Till Dawn in 2017, started the final table as the short stack and managed to last just 30 minutes. From the cutoff, Jack Hardcastle raised to 3,500,000 with [poker card="9d"][poker card="9s"] before Lampropulos moved all-in for 19,100,000 with [poker card="ac"][poker card="qc"] and Hardcastle called. The board ran out [poker card="jh"][poker card="td"][poker card="3d"][poker card="3h"][poker card="6d"] to give Lampropulos a short sweat before eliminating her in eighth place. Hardcastle's stay only lasted another 45 minutes. From UTG+1 the young Brit raised to 4,500,000 with [poker card="kd"][poker card="td"]. Action folded to Christian Rudolph in the cutoff and he re-raised to 11,000,000 with [poker card="qc"][poker card="qh"]. Hardcastle called to send both players to a [poker card="jd"][poker card="9h"][poker card="3d"] flop. Hardcastle checked, Rudolph bet 9,000,000, and Hardcastle moved all-in for 43,700,000. Rudolph called. The turn was the [poker card="6c"] and the river was the [poker card="ts"] to miss all of Hardcastle's outs and eliminate him in seventh. A blind-versus-blind battle lead to the end of the road for Weijie Zheng. Action folded to Zheng in the small blind and he moved all in for 38,400,000 with [poker card="7s"][poker card="5d"]. Rudolph called from the big blind with [poker card="ah"][poker card="8d"] after using two of his time extensions. The [poker card="td"][poker card="9d"][poker card="6c"] flop gave Zheng a gutshot straight draw. The [poker card="ac"] turn gave Rudolph top pair and left Zheng drawing to one of three eights. However, the river was [poker card="3d"] and Zheng was sent to the rail in sixth place. An hour later, the other Swedish player at the final table was eliminated. Fredrik Andersson looked down and [poker card="ad"][poker card="9d"] in the hijack and moved all-in for 30,500,000. Suarez called from the button with [poker card="ah"][poker card="td"] before James Romero folded [poker card="as"][poker card="qh"] from the big blind. THe [poker card="jc"][poker card="5h"][poker card="3c"][poker card="2d"][poker card="5d"] runout couldn't save Andersson and he was eliminated in fifth. The Dusk Till Dawn rail lost one of their own just a few hands later. Suarez called from the small blind with [poker card="9h"][poker card="4h"] and James Clarke checked with [5]d[poker card="4d"]. The [poker card="6h"][poker card="4c"][poker card="4s"] flop gave both players trip fours. Suarez checked, Clarke bet 2,500,000, and Suarez called. The turn was the [poker card="th"] and Suarez bet 12,500,000 before Clarke moved all-in for 71,000,000 and Suarez called. The [poker card="qh"] river gave Suarez a flush and forced Calrke to settle for a fourth place finish. Three-handed play lasted nearly an hour before Suarez found another victim. Rudolph folded the button, Suarez called from the small blind with [poker card="2c"][poker card="2s"] and Romero checked with [poker card="kd"][poker card="jd"]. The [poker card="kc"][poker card="qd"][poker card="2h"] flop gave Suarez bottom set and Romero top pair. Suarez bet 3,000,000 before Romero made it 10,000,000 and Suarez called. The turn was the [poker card="8d"] and Suarez check-called Romero's 20,000,000 bet. After the [poker card="5s"] river, Suarez checked, Romero moved all-in for 42,000,000 and Suarez called to eliminate Romero in third and send the tournament to heads-up with stacks nearly dead even. Each player took turns as the chip leader over the next two hours before Suarez took the chip lead for good. Down to just 10 big blinds, Rudolph moved all-in from the big blind with [poker card="7h"][poker card="4h"] after Suarez completed from the button with [poker card="ad"][poker card="8h"]. Suarez called and then watched the [poker card="kc"][poker card="9d"][poker card="2d"][poker card="as"][poker card="9c"] runout eliminate Rudolph in second place and give Suarez his first major title. partypoker MILLIONS UK Final Table Payouts Anton Suarez - $1,000,000 Christian Rudolph - $620,000 James Romero - $420,000 James Clarke - $311,000 Fredrik Andersson - $230,000 Weijie Zheng - $170,000 Jack Hardcastle - $130,000 Maria Lampropulos - $100,000 Jamie O'Connor - $80,000
  2. As the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak becomes more and more of a concern, the poker world, specifically the live poker world, is being affected. Several major tournaments and brands have canceled or postponed operations, and there will likely be more changes coming. One of the changes is the famed Irish Poker Open moving to be played online at partypoker. On March 10, the Irish Poker Open announced that the event would be postponed. Less than a week later, it was announced that partypoker and the Irish Poker Open had partnered to make the event still happen, only now it will take place online at partypoker and is scheduled for April 6-12, 2020. [ptable zone="888poker"][ptable zone="Party Poker NJ"][ptable zone="Global Poker Article Ad"] "Since our announcement last week regarding the postponement of Irish Open 2020, considerable efforts have been made to find an alternative date to run Irish Open 2020," said JP McCann of the Irish Poker Open. "However, as the uncertainty surrounding live poker events continues, we feel that the best decision to take at this point is to cancel the live festival for 2020. "We would like to thank partypoker for taking the initiative to help ensure Europe's oldest running poker festival goes ahead during these very challenging times. We hope to see you for the first time ever on the virtual tables for the 40th Anniversary of the Irish Open." Tom Waters, partypoker Managing Director, added: "We are delighted to be associated with Europe’s oldest Poker Festival. The Irish Open is a truly unique event and following the disappointment of its cancellation this year, an online Irish Open series looks a perfect fit for both event organizers and partypoker.” The Irish Poker Open features a €1 million guaranteed main event that will begin on April 6. The Irish Poker Open Main Event remains a multi-day tournament. The 2020 Irish Poker Open scheduled will have some revisions, but both sides said that the majority of the slate will remain intact. Full details on the schedule of the online version of the Irish Poker Open have yet to be released. When those are revealed, PocketFives will provide an update. The Irish Poker Open is the longest running poker tournament in Europe and the second longest running poker tournament in the world, behind only the World Series of Poker. It was first organized in 1980 by Terry Rogers and has been a staple of the poker calendar ever since. Past winners include Griffin Benger (2017), Neil Channing (2008), Joe Beevers (2003), Liam Flood (1996, 1990), and Noel Furlong (1989, 1987). In 2019, the Irish Poker Open €1,150 Main Event drew a field of 1,807 entries. Weijie Zheng topped all competitors to take home the €300,000 first-place prize.
