Joeri Zandvliet admitted it was ridiculous for him to win a second UKIPT title in Dublin

Joeri Zandvliet is the UKIPT Dublin 2011 champion.

The Dutchman, who also won the UKIPT Manchester last year, pocketed €83,500 for his impressive victory, in which he denied pal Max Silver the chance to retain his title.

Silver was knocked out in 4th when attempting an outrageous five-bet bluff with 8♥4♥ into Zandvliet's A♦K♦.

"I don't care about denying Max a title, if he had spiked an eight or a four I would've liked him to win," said Zandvliet, who has incredibly final tabled three of the six UKIPTs that he has played, winning two and coming fourth in the other.

This gives him an incredible two wins out of six UKIPT events and makes him only the second player - along with Nick Abou Risk - to have won two UKIPTs.

Zandvliet added: “It’s ridiculous to win a second time.

"It’s like a four day marathon…and then you win at some point.”

American Chuck Fabian was runner-up for €49,600 and Hungarian Robert Csire took home €30,700 in 3rd.

The UKIPT Dublin €500 Main Event brought 718 players to the Ballsbridge Inn and the mammoth prizepool of €348,230 was divided amongst the 90 top finishers.
