The Party Poker Irish Poker Festival began in style yesterday with day 1a of the Mystery Bounty event. In total 71 players took to the felt for a chance to make day 2, when those very mysterious bounties kick-in. The €50,000 guarantee looks to be in no danger, with more than half the guarantee collected on a day that would traditionally be the small field. Just nine players made it through the day, with chip counts as follows:
