Action Dan Harrington heads to Dublin to play in the Irish Poker Open 2009
Former World Series of Poker champion Dan “Action Dan” Harrington, who has found great success as a poker author with his “Harrington on Hold’em” series, is the third former WSOP Main Event winner to sign on to play the 2009 Irish Poker Open. Both Jamie Gold and Noel Furlong have already registered for the event, which will be held on Easter weekend at the CityWest Hotel in Dublin.
Action Dan last played in the IPO back in 2007. He has an impressive resume. In addition to his WSOP title, he has a World Poker Tour title. This makes Harrington just one of five men to hold both championships. He made back to back final tables in the WSOP Main Event (2003 and 2004), defeating thousands of other players to get that far in the event again.
Mr. Harrington, a successful businessman and investor, has live tournament winnings of more than $6.5 million. He is a fantastic addition to the IPO.
Summary: Dan Harrington, former WSOP and WPT champion, is going to Dublin this Easter to play in the 2009 paddypowerpoker Irish Poker Open.
