Niall Farrell won the Season XV partypoker World Poker Tour® Caribbean Main Event on Wednesday, topping a field of 323 entries to score his first WPT® title and $335,000 in first-place prize money. Included in Farrell’s prize was a $15,000 seat into the season-ending WPT Tournament of Champions, and that means we’ll be seeing him at Seminole Hard Rock in Hollywood, FL in April 2017 to close out the season.
With the victory, Farrell moved to over $3.3 million in career live tournament earnings. He also earned 1,000 points in the Hublot WPT Player of the Year race. With 1,050 total points on the season, Farrell was in seventh place at the completion of WPT Caribbean. Ben Zamani sat in first with 2,500 points and a commanding lead.
Farrell won the partypoker-sponsored WPT Caribbean Main Event as a partypoker qualifier.
