The 2010 Irish Open Main Event was won by Englishman James Mitchell, who won a €600,000 first prize. He beat Irishman Paul Carr in a heads up battle where the chip lead was exchanged a number of times in one of the most enthralling final tables in the tournament’s history. Carr received €312,600 for his second place finish but Mitchell retained the bragging rights and there will be plenty of players back in action looking to follow in his footsteps.
