Poker's royalty turned out for the 2007 event including World Series of Poker Champions Dan Harrington and Carlos Mortensen, but in the end it was popular Northern Irish man Marty Smyth who reigned supreme.

Marty lifted the Terry Rogers trophy, taking home €650,000, after an epic heads up battle with Roland De Wolfe. Marty defeated a record breaking field of 708 players which also included Mike Sexton, Dave 'Devilfish' Ulliott, Andy Black, Padraig Parkinson, Scott Gray, Ram Vaswani, David Plastik, Eddie Scharf, Dave Masters, Surinder Sunar, Frank Cruess Callaghan, Ian Frazer, and both G.I. and Vegas versions of Elvis!
