Not by buy-in, but by number of entrants, the largest live tournament in Europe so far this year is the €180+€20 buy-in International Poker Open. It drew a massive 1,293-player field Oct. 15-17th at the Regency Hotel in Dublin, Ireland.

The field was a mix of amateurs, Internet qualifiers, celebrities and established pros like Neil Channing, Surinder Sunar, Andy Black, Marty Smyth, Padraig Parkinson, Jesse May and "Mad" Marty Wilson. A total of 121 players cashed from the €252,740 prize pool with Irishman John Gray coming out on top for the trophy, title and €50,600 first prize.

"I feel great, it's a bit surreal," he said moments after. "I don't know what to think, I can't believe it but it will probably sink in tomorrow."

Final table results:

1st John Gray €50,600

2nd Eddie Landy €33,683

3rd Aidan Connolly €23,538

4th Gavin Flynn €17,735

5th Vincent Cosgrave €13,944

6th Conor Reddy €11,416

7th Craig Borrer €9,395

8th Leon Pascal €7,057

9th Daniel Ward €4,618
