The Dublin Poker Festival Is Going to Be Massive

The Dublin Poker Festival Is Going to Be Massive 0001

Quick, grab a pen and your diary and make sure that you have January 30 through to February 8 free because those are the dates that the Dublin Poker Festival takes place and it looks set to be huge.

The Regency Hotel in Dublin, Ireland is the venue for the 10-day festival of pokery goodness, playing host to no fewer 30 tournaments with buy-ins starting as low as €10 and increasing up to a more substantial €570.

Kicking off the Dubling Poker Festival, which is supported by Paddy Power Poker, is the €200 buy-in Amateur Championship Of Poker (ACOP). The ACOP is now in its third season and continues to grow in size and stature with each tournament run.

In 2013, Mark Delaney topped a field of 198 players to scoop €4,920. it could have been much more had the final four players decided to strike a deal and take home amounts ranging from the aforementioned €4,920 and €6,415.

Tony Martin took down the 2014 ACOP and left the Irish capital with €10,000 in his back pocket after outlasting a 328-strong field. Do you think that the 2015 ACOP could see 400 or more players in it?

Other highlights of the festival include nightly €10 Blind Omaha tournaments, various side no limit Hold'em side events costing between €50 and €100 and the eagerly anticipated 2015 European Deepstack Main Event.

The European Deepstack Poker Championships is now in its eighth season and is one of the must play tournaments on the European calendar, not least because of its 100,000 starting stack!

When the tournament ran in February 2014, a crowd of 450 poker players descended on the venue and created a €219,834 prize pool, the lion's share of which found its way to prominent online grinder Cathal “shinerrr” Shine's bankroll, namely €38,375 after a three-way deal involving the Netherlands' Joost Schippers and Belgium's Jonas Van Bogaert.

Tournaments with buy-ins in the range of €200-€700 have proven to be extremely popular in recent times and we would not be surprised in the slightest to see at least 500 players turning out for the 2015 European Deepstack Championships Main Event.
