    The top 10 was completed by English duo Shaun Conning (143,300) and Sam Macdonald (122,000), Irish pair Francis ‘Wally’ McCormack (118,000) and Con Collins (115,700), German Evan Christ (105,700), debonair Dubliner Andy Black (104,000) and Frenchman Julien Dolay (98,200).

    A total of 338 players started Day 1 of the WPT Ireland, with 195 making in into today’s second day after nine levels of play, even though the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA) kicked off on The Bahamas on the same day.
