Niall Be Back – Farrell Terminates Day 1c as Chip Leader

…Aaaand that’s your lot for the Day 1’s!

Today’s Day 1c drew a staggering 928 entries, obliterating the €1 million guarantee and smashing the record for an Irish Open field. Along with the Day 1a (249), Day 1b (453) and turbo-format Day 1d (95) entries, the total field for this year’s Main Event now stands at 1,725, almost 400 more than last year, and so far they’ve generated a €1,768,125 prize pool. We say so far, because players can register right up until the start of Day 2, at 2pm on Saturday.

The Day 1c chip leader is none other than Niall Farrell, star of probably the greatest poker interview of all time, on 259,000. This puts him in fourth place overall, after Day 1b chip leader Evangelos Bechrakis (364,700), Day 1a chip leader Thomas Kolnes (246,100) and Day 1b second-placer and High Roller winner Max Silver (261,300).

374 players survived Day 1c, and tomorrow they will combine with the survivors from Day 1a (94), Day 1b (172) and Day 1d (54) – that makes 694. Discounting duplicate bags (forfeited smaller stacks) that’s a current Day 2 field of 690.  We expect the final number to be somewhat higher than that, though, as who wouldn’t want to take a punt with a starting stack in Level 11?

Full chip counts will magically appear beneath here (or on their own Live Updates tab) shortly for your enjoyment, but beyond that, we now kiss Day 1 goodbye and set our sights on what we believe will be an epic Day 2. Until then, your blogging team has some pressing matters to attend to at the bar. Sláinte!
