888poker and ClubPoker Rathmines have joined forces to bring a superb low buy-in poker festival to the Irish capital of Dublin. The inaugural event is schedules to run from February 20-22, 2015.

Kicking of the 888Live Local Series Dublin, on February 19, is a €30 super satellite that feeds into the €220 buy-in Main Event. The first actual tournament takes place at 4:00 p.m. on February 20 and it is the biggest on the schedule, the Main Event.

For the €220 buy-in, you receive a generous helping of 25,000 tournament chips and should you somehow manage to punt these off before late registration ends, you have the option to re-enter once on each of the two starting flights.

Other highlights of the new festival include a €60 Deepstack event, a €120 buy-in Sit 'n' Go frenzy and a €550 High Roller event.
