If you are a student and you love the game of poker then keep your diary free on Mar. 2-3 in 2013 because those are the dates the paddypowerpoker.com Student Masters will take place.
The €110 buy-in No Limit Hold’em freezeout will be unique in that it will be played in two different venues over the weekend of Mar. 2. At 14:00 on Mar. 2 play will kick off at the Ballsbridge Hotel in Dublin, which is located just a few minutes from the bustling city centre of Dublin and can be found right next door to the Aviva Stadium.
The second and final day’s play will also start at 14:00 but the the fabulous Jackpot Casino and will continue until a champion has been crowned.
Each player in the Main Event will start with a generous stack of 10,000 chips and will play to a 45-minute clock, meaning there will be plenty of play and room for manoeuvre in this event.
Last year’s Student Masters Main Event attracted a crowd of 169 runners, who were eventually outlasted by John Roche of the National College of Ireland who walked away with the €4,650 first place prize, the title of champion, a trophy and a seat to the Irish Open Main Event.
This year paddypowerpoker.com is once again adding an Irish Open seat to the prize pool, which will be awarded to the 2013 Student Masters champion. Should the €110 buy-in be out of your price range fear not, because there are a number of satellite events running on paddypowerpoker.com.
