The Fitzwilliam Poker Festival – November 23rd – 28th 2016

The 2016 November Poker Festival was a record year for the Fitz with over 232 entrants for the televised event on Eirsport. Our defending champion Andy Black made a great defense of his title making the final table. We had two ladies in the final 9 as well which shows how popular the game is becoming with our female membership. A mixture of Fitz members and a few new members made up the final table. After 4 days of fantastic play we were left with 2 players (Paul Keogh & Lee Egan) and after an intriguing battle one man stood tall. Congratulations to Lee Egan the 2016 November Festival Champion!

We would like to thank everyone involved for their support including: all of the club members both who played and supported the concept, Eirsport as our TV partner, our wonderful host Kara Scott, our commentators and producers Ken Doherty & Padraig Parkinson, 888 for their sponsorship of the festival, all of the Fitz staff who worked on the event and everyone who posted, commented or re-tweet the festival to help make it the poker event of 2016. We hope to see you all back in 2017 including our winner Lee! Stay tuned for details of our next big poker event mid-2017.
