Rory Rees Brennan Starts 2009 Off In Style

Irish Poker Championship crown makes a great start to the year

Rory Rees Brennan survived an entry field of 255 players, many of them top
names in the game, over the weekend to carry off the Euro 160 000 main prize
in the first of this year's major live poker tournaments, the Party Poker
Irish Poker Championship.

Brennan saw off heads up opponent Chris Dowling to take the title after a
two-and-a-half-hour finale, leaving him with a Euro 90 000 second placing.

Held at the Radisson in Galway, the Euro 3 000 buy-in event attracted
players of the calibre of Mike Sexton, Kenna James, Marty Smyth and last
year's champ Jude Ainsworth, all vying for a slice of the Euro 464 000 prize

Brennan survived a final table headed by Ben Vinson with the chip lead that
included Peter Murphy, Derek Murray, David Curtis, Krzysztof Gwvszko, Rory
Liffey, David Poole and Chris Dowling.
