Noel Furlong (born in Dublin, Ireland) is a recreational poker player who won
the 1999 World Series Of Poker. He originally became a millionaire from his
carpet manufacturing business.
Furlong began playing poker in 1984, and in his first trip to the World Series
of Poker, he placed 6th in the main event. Ten years later Furlong's biggest
win would come in the 1999 WSOP main event, in which he won $1 million.
Until Andrew Black's 5th place finish in the 2005 World Series, he was the top
money-winning Irish poker player in the world. As of 2005, Furlong's total live
tournament winnings exceed $1,110,000.
Furlong owns a carpet distribution company that does over $100 million
worth of business a year. Because of his involvement with the carpet
business he doesn't play poker frequently, usually only the WSOP and
tournaments in Ireland and western Europe.
Furlong is also a horse trainer.
