Dublin, Ireland (PRWEB) April 2, 2009
Noel Magner has won the Boylepoker.com Be Our Sponsored Pro challenge, defeating the eight other finalists over the weekend in Dublin to take down the $20,000 prize comprising sponsorship into three upcoming live events.
Boylepoker.com's Be Our Sponsored Pro competition saw nine online qualifiers battle it out in a live to win a sponsorship package of paid entry and expenses for the Irish Open 2009, the Grosvenor UK Poker Tour Manchester main event, and the World Series of Poker $1,500 no-limit hold'em event.
There were nine seats up for grabs in nine different tournaments with the winner of each tournament progressing to the final table held in Dublin's Jackpot Club on Saturday March 28 during the Boylepoker.com Poker for the Homeless March Madness weekend.
Magner came second in the pot-limit Omaha online event which was won by Boylepoker pro Marty Smyth but under the rules of the competition, where an already sponsored Boylepoker player could not qualify for the final table, was awarded the seat.
The final table for the event was:
Seat 1 - Mark Reilly
Seat 2 - Enda Kendrick
Seat 3 - Noel Magner
Seat 4 - Pat O'Callaghan
Seat 5 - Stephen McLean
Seat 6 - Alan Reenan
Seat 8 - Patrick Aherne
Seat 9 - Barry Brennan
Paul Spillane, head of Boylepoker, said, "Congratulations to Noel and good luck in the live events he will now represent Boylepoker at. He played brilliantly to get to the final table and continued by dominating the game from the off and is now a deserving Boylepoker pro. We hope the logo is as lucky for him as it has been for the rest of the team."
