The 84-entry event (topping last year’s field of 70) generated a total prizepool of €155,610.  For tonight’s finalists, an encouraging warm-up for the €1,000,000 Guaranteed Irish Open Main Event – but it’s unlikely anyone will be awake enough to jump into Day 1a, which begins tomorrow at 2pm.  We’ll be switching blog allegiance to that with live updates from the start.

*If they’re not just bad beat stories disguised as other stories.
