Joeri Zandvliet becomes two-time UKIPT winner

Two players at the UKIPT Dublin tournament had a chance at joining Nick Abou Risk as the only two-time champion on the PokerStars UKIPT, and in the end it was Joeri Zandvliet from the Netherlands who would accomplish the feat.

Zandvliet won the UKIPT Main Event in Manchester last year, and is closing in on $250k in career tournament earnings over the past two years. Truly Zandvliet will be a player to watch for the remainder of 2011 and in 2012.

Making Zandvliet’s feat all the more impressive was the fact that this was his third UKIPT final table and he has only entered six tournaments! The other player who had a chance to win his second UKIPT title was Max Silver, who would have to settle for a 4th place finish this time around.

Here is a look at the final table payouts from the tournament:

1. Joeri Zandvliet — €83,500

2. Chuck Fabian — €49,600

3. Robert Csire — €30,700

4. Max Silver — €22,650

5. Jason Tompkins — €17,600

6. Noel O’Brien — €13,950

7. Rory Curtis — €10,450

8. David Docherty — €8,000

The next stop on the UKIPT tour will be the Season-ending Championship which is combined with the PokerStars EPT London stop. The tournament will begin on September 30th, 2011 and features a £5,000 buy-in, 10x more than the typical UKIPT tournament!
