Davis cleans up at Poker tounament

Snooker legend Steve Davis today cleared the table at the Irish Poker Championships, scooping winnings of €13,500 in one of the tournament’s side competitions.

In a marathon 16-hour session which finished at 7am this morning, Davis played his cards right to beat his two final competitors and claim the winner’s title.

The trio had already decided to split the first prize winnings.

Davis was among 398 people taking part in the championships at Dublin’s Citywest this weekend.

He was joined by comedian Tommy Tiernan and fellow snooker players Ken Doherty and Alex Higgins.

Tiernan and Higgins were knocked out on Friday but Doherty hung in until late on Saturday night.

The competition’s overall winner was Kieran Walsh, a UCC student from Cork, who pocketed €150,000 last night. Second prize of €70,000 went to Damian Kavanagh from Dublin.

Across the country more than 3,000 people took part in regional and national heats for the championship, with a total of €800,000 up for grabs.

Paul Magee, spokesperson for, said the competition was a huge success.

“It was a fantastic weekend of poker with some of Ireland and the world’s best poker players competing.

“The tournament has been so successful and is now the biggest poker tournament in Ireland and one of the biggest in Europe.

“We are already looking forward to next year,” he said.
