PokerStars UKIPT Dublin 2010 Won By Max Silver

Online pro Max Silver has won the 2010 UKIPT Dublin, after overcoming a huge field of  589 players to take the title, and the €72,000 ($91,541) first place prize.
Despite being an online cash specialist, Silver has shown he has what it takes to make it on the live tournament circuit, too. He will also have the opportunity to further demonstrate his skills later this month, after being awarded a ticket to the upcoming £5,250 buy-in EPT London event starting on the 29th.
Commenting on his biggest live score to date, Silver said:
“It feels absolutely fabulous to win. It never really sunk in that I could win until we got to the last four. I had already planned to play London but this is just a nice bonus. I can’t wait to get back to my hometown. I’ll be playing a lot of events there. Actually, hopefully I’ll just be playing one all the way through.”
Max Silver had actually qualified for the €560 UKIPT Dublin via an $11+ rebuy tournament at PokerStars, and when the field was eventually reduced to just eight players, he took his seat at the final table.
Half an hour later, half the table had been eliminated and Silver later almost found himself out in 3rd after going all-in on a 6-6-K flop holding pocket A’s, only to discover his opponent Tom Kitt was holding a 6 in hand for trips. With his tournament hopes on the line, Silver managed to spike an A on the river to double up and send Kitt to the rail in 3rd (€26,400).
Silver then put his 6 to 1 chip advantage over Ronan Gilligan to good use and not long after all the money was in the centre of the table with Silver holding Q-Q to his opponent’s Ad-5d. With no help from the board, Ronan Gilligan was the runner-up finisher and took home €43,400, while Silver secures a prestigious UKIPT title, as well as the €72,000 top place prize.
