The buy-in to the weekly final is now only €50+5 with daily satellites available, so players really can bag themselves a seat at the main event worth €550 for a fraction of that amount.
The Irish Poker Festival is a must on anyone’s Poker calendar - the 2010 event saw 633 runners in the main event alone, and 2011 is already shaping up to be bigger. The four day event will be held from the 29th September to 2nd October, with the €550 main event once again having a guaranteed prizepool of a massive €250,000.
Ladbrokes is also throwing in a value bursting offer for the first 10 Ladbrokes qualifiers who are knocked out of the Killarney Main Event. They will be entered into the two day side event starting on Saturday 1st October (seat worth €300). Ladbrokes qualifiers who are knocked out 11th to 20th will be entered to the one day side event on Sunday 2nd October (seat worth €150).
Susanna Havukainen, from Ladbrokes Poker said:
“After a year of planning and anticipation the time has nearly come to shuffle up and deal at the 2011 Irish Poker Festival. With only one qualifier left we have decided to really go all in and guarantee a staggering 15 seats. Poker fans should also not forget that Ladbrokes is offering some great odds on all aspects of the festival, so even if they are not playing, they can still have a bet.”
Last year Lars Torngren (pictured) was the eventual champion, walking away with €75,000. Can you follow in his footsteps? What are you waiting for? Qualify now!
