Padraig “Smidge” O’Neill won a whopping €79,998 for the Unibet Open Online title, beating opponent “lovebeaches” heads up.
The Unibet Open Online took place on the final two days of the Unibet Online Series, having had to move online due to the coronavirus pandemic.
387 total runners turned out to take part in the Unibet Open Online, with 64 players returned for Day 2. A €406,350 prizepool was created, the largest ever in Unibet Open Online history, smashing the €250,000 guarantee.
“I’m absolutely buzzing! To be honest I only signed up to Unibet because of Lappin and Doke,” O’Neill said of Unibet Ambassadors David Lappin and Dara O’Kearney. “They told me how good the games were and they weren’t wrong. I probably owe them a pint!”
“These days, I play on Unibet most nights. I played the last Unibet Open Online and, to be honest, it was a probably a bit fast. This one was perfect. I don’t think the average stack ever dropped below 40bbs. It was also great that Unibet had a Twitch stream. My family all got to watch me win the most amount of money I have ever won. That makes it all extra special for me!”
