The Macau Sporting Club, Cork is the venue for the 2012 Irish Poker Classic, a live poker festival that runs from Aug. 13-19. Over the next week, the Macau Sporting Club will host no fewer than seven events and more than half of a dozen satellite tournaments with buy-ins ranging from €23 and €560.
The festival kicks off today with a €56 rebuy satellite to the Main Event with the first proper event taking place on Aug. 14 at 20:00. This curtain raiser is a €205 (€180+€25) No Limit Hold'em Warm-Up event that will be played over two days thanks to its excellent structure.
Although each of the events on offer look great, the crowing jewel of the 2012 Irish Poker Classic is without a doubt the €560 Main Event that runs Aug.16-19. If €560 is out of the constraints of your bankroll then there are a plethora of satellites feeding into the Main Event right up to start of Day 1b; check with the Macau Sporting Club for full details on +353 (0)21 453 0477.
