Second 888poker Live Local Series Heads to Dublin

888poker Live Local Series

The 888poker Live Local Series sets sail for Dublin, Ireland for the second leg of its newly formed tournament series. ClubPoker Rathmines is where the action is at from February 20-22, action that is backed up with the world famous Irish craic and a juicy looking €30,000 guaranteed Main Event.

The Main Event costs €220 to enter and players are permitted to re-enter once on each of the two starting flights, giving them more than enough chance to progress to Sunday's second and final day of play.

Luke Ivory, the Managing Director of ClubPoker Rathmines, is eager for the fledgling festival to get under way.

“888poker and ClubPoker Rathmines have joined forces to bring a superb low buy-in poker event to the Irish capital. We’ve pulled out all of the stops to ensure that this new event is a hit with the locals and any other players it attracts from outside the city. We look forward to hosting this great event for our players!”

The inaugural 888poker Live Local Series took place at Aspers Casino, Straford in late January and saw 609 entries taken, creating a £125,000 prize pool as they did so. Terrance Jordan was that particular tournament's champion, walking away ith a cool £23,702 for this meagre investment.

While the Dublin leg probably won't have similar numbers (mainly due to Aspers Casino, Stratford being one of the largest casinos in the UK), we don't envisage ClubPoker Rathmines having any problem in reaching its €30,000 guarantee on the Main Event.

Once the Dublin leg is out of the way, the new 888poker tour jets off to Spain, the Czech Republic and even as far away as Australia! You can qualify for any of the legs, shown in the table below, at 888poker. Sign up to 888poker via PokerNews and see your first deposit matched 100% up to $888.
