Niall Farrell joined in the applause as the remaining players congratulated each other for making the money. Before play resumed we caught a quick word with him to see how his series was going.
Farrell told us that he was enjoying it so far but had missed four days through an unpleasant dose of food poisoning. Apart from that he had jumped in to every No Limit Hold’Em event he could, and while the cashes were welcome he felt he was capable of making the money in the smaller buy-in events with softer fields with his eyes closed.
What he was really after he told us was a score over $300,000.
