The fast growing Betfair Poker LIVE tour is gathering a lot of momentum, and today has announced details on the new season. The first stop on the new tour will be Dublin on September 23rd -25th 2011
The structure of the events and the buy-ins have been tweaked slightly to make them more appealing to recreational players who want to experience the buzz of an offline tournament as well as experience the Betfair hospitality in some of Europe’s most glamorous cities. This season will take in visits to Dublin, Costa Brava, London and Prague.
The tour starts next month at the historic Fitzwilliam Casino & Card Room in Dublin. The venue has a capacity of 160, so places are bound to be in high demand. Each event will have the same buy in and structure of $600 + $50, however, this year there is the unique twist of each event being an eliminator style tournament. Each player will have a bounty of $100 on their head, making for an action packed event where every hand has the potential to earn players money.
The Fox Poker Club in London will once again play host to the UK event in February.
Asko Heiskanen Global Poker Marketing Manager said “The Betfair Poker Live Tour has picked the perfect venue in Dublin to kick off the 2011 Betfair Poker LIVE! Tour. We have great poker, with a unique twist in the form of our eliminator structure and players will also be able to enjoy the magical city of Dublin, where we are hoping to play a round of golf or catch some of the Solheim Cup live!”
