Irish player Stephen Lardner took down the record-breaking €250 Hendon Mob Championship event in the early hours of this morning for €16,720. He beat Daniel Smith heads-up to take the trophy and first prize while Smith snagged €10,620 for his runner-up finish. Irish poker legend Andy Black was third for €7,960. The tournament attracted a massive field of 400 entries – well up on last year’s 332 entries and a record for the THMC in Dublin. Among the 47 players paid were Colin Lovelock, Michael Kane and last year’s winner Waheed Ashraf.
Among those who competed were EPTLive commentator Joe “Stapes” Stapleton, who had a bounty on his head, and PokerStars Ambassadors Benjamin Spragg and Georgina “GJReggie” James.
