The Fairways Hotel, Dundalk is the venue for The Northern Poker Open 2012 and it should be a fabulous event for all who are taking part. There are three tournaments in total with the highlight of the trio being the €250 buy-in Main Event that kicks off on Friday.
Registration for the Main Event opens at 17:00 on Friday 27 July at the venue, with the cards being in the air from 20:00 onwards. For the €215+€35 entry fee players will receive 20,000 chips and play to a blind structure that is shown in the graphic below.
But before the Main Event is a Super Satellite costing €50+€10 to enter. This qualifier starts at 16:00 on Friday 27 July and will award one seat to the Main Event for every €250 collected. Players start with 10,000 chips and the blinds increase every 15-minutes.
The first of two side events at the Northern Poker Open takes place on Saturday 28 July at 18:00 and is a €130+€20 No Limit Hold'em Freezeout where players begin with a 12,000 stack and play to a 30-minute clock, whilst the following day – but at the earlier time of 16:00 – there is a €100+€20 No Limit Hold'em freezeout played with 10,000 starting stacks and a 20-minute blind structure.
We believe it is possible t register for the Main Event prior to Friday but please contact Seamus Birt on +44 (0)781 120 7314 for more details as he is the man with the plan, so to speak.
