Irishman Wins Poker Tournament, Drinking Commences Immediately

Padraig Parkinson won the first ever UKIPT Galway poker tournament last night, winning nearly $182,000, making this the 7th World Series of Poker event that he has cashed in on. With the win, Parkinson wins the unofficial “Irish” title and a free seat at the English Poker Tournament — London next year.

Never one to live up to a stereotype, Parkinson was feeling awfully good after his win: “I was born just down the road so I can’t believe that I won it.

“If anyone wants a drink, I’m buying!”

Being a Billionaire Must be Fun

article-1029125-01bc22f800000578-855_468x347-thumb-425x315-88716According to several Russian newspapers, Roman Abramovich, the Russian billionaire ranked as the 51st richest person in the world according to Forbes, and owner of the Chelsea soccer club lost one of his yachts playing poker. Seeing that Abramovich already has several mega-yachts, and is currently building the world’s largest private yacht, I doubt that losing one of the many boats in his armada is a major loss. Of course, his PR flaks are denying the report but if you can’t count on the honesty of a Russian newspaper the world is already lost.
