If it is low-to-mid stakes No Limit Hold’em poker tournaments that take your fancy then you could do much worse than head to the Citywest Hotel in Dublin this weekend where the Raining Aces Super 2013 festival is taking place.
The three-day event will feature 11 tournaments, 10 of them being Hold’em and one Pot Limit Omaha – we all know who Irish players love the crazy game that is PLO! Kicking off proceedings is a €400+€60 No Limit Hold’em Raining Aces Team Challenge that will see teams of four battle it out at the felt for bragging rights and plenty of cold, hard cash!
Saturday features the two-day €300+€50 Super Poker Event of Europe 2013 Main Event, that has an estimated prize pool of €300,000. When this tournament ran in 2012 it attracted a field of 877 players who created a prize pool in excess of €260,000. The organisers are hoping for a 1,000 player turnout this time around, meaning the prize pool could be huge!
For those of you who are feeling flush there is a €750+€75 High Roller taking place on Sunday evening, while the cash game specialists among you will be delighted to know cash games should be running around the clock with a maximum rake of €15 per hand.
