One of the most popular tournaments on the PokerStars UK & Ireland Poker Tour kicks off today; the UKIPT Dublin Main Event. The €700+€70 buy-in event takes place inside the CityWest Hotel in the heart of the Emerald Isle's capital city and gets underway at 12:00 today with Day 1a; with Day 1b taking place at the same time on Friday 18 May.
Last year's event attracted a bumper crowd of 718 players who created a prize pool of €348,230 that was shared out amongst the top 90 finishers. The eventual winners was Holland's Joeri Zandvliet who bested a talented final table that included Max Silver to walk aay with the top prize of €83,500. Speaking of Silver, he loves this event! He won the inaugural event back in 2010 for €72,000 and followed that up with a fourth place finish last year. Can he make it a hat-trick of UKIPT Dublin final tables this week?
Along with the Main Event there are also plenty of side events taking place over the next week so if you are near the CityWest Hotel there is no excuse for not calling in and getting involved in this superb stop on the UKIPT!
