Lone Star Poker Series 2020 NJCOOP
Event #1: €100,000 GTD 6-Max

Christopher Adler Wins Irish Open Online Event #1 for €18,615

Christopher Andler

With the Irish Open being played online on partypoker for the first time in its history, Event #1: €320 6-Max got the festival off to a flying start yesterday, smashing the guarantee and crowning the first champion of the festival.

The overall schedule consists of 22 events with buy-ins ranging from €162 up to €5,200, with the guaranteed prize pools weighing in at more than €2.7 million.

However, that figure looks set to be eclipsed after 441 entrants in the opening event smashed the guarantee, generating a prize pool of €132,300.

With partypoker using real names on the client throughout the Irish Open Online, it was Sweden’s Christopher Andler who took down the top prize of €18,615 seemingly after a four-way deal involving him, runner-up Qi Hu (€18,013), third-place finisher Daniel Kolozsar (€15,780) and fourth-placed Rodrigo Perez (€15,659).
