Andy Black advances in Party Poker World Open V

Irishman Andy Black took an early chip lead in heat 5 and more or less cruised from there to the final table at the Party Poker World Open V. With more than $4.000.000 in total tournament winnings the Full Tilt Poker sponsored pro will be yet another exiting personality at the final table where he will join Phil Laak, Jennifer Tilly, Luke Schwartz and Party Poker online qualifier Jan Vein who is the only non professional player in the finals so far.

Andy Black’s biggest tournament result came in 2005 where he ended fifth in the WSOP Main Event earning himself $1.750.000. Besides that result Andy Black has a really good result in Party Pokers Premier League 2008 which he won and took down quarter of a million dollars. His second biggest cash is from Melbourne where he in the 2007 edition of Aussie Millions finished third right behind fellow Full Till Poker pro Gus Hansen and Jimmy Fricke taking home more than half a million dollars to Ireland.

No trash talk from Schwartz

It is to be expected that Andy Black is not going to let Luke FullFlush1 Schwartz get away with a lot of trash talk at the final table which create quite some excitement for the finals taking place this week.. This of course only if Luke will be allowed to enter the casino premises as it are still unclear how his reported ban from all UK casinos will be treated by casino management who only allowed him to play in heat 1 if he was being followed around in the casino by Party Poker officials.
