€300,000 Guaranteed Grand Prix Killarney Starts Sep. 7

Grand Prix Killarney

The €300,000 guaranteed Grand Prix Killarney, part of the partypoker LIVE circuit, gets underway at the INEC and Gleneagle Hotel from Sep. 7 and runs until Sep. 10.

Players in the Grand Prix Killarney Main Event can exchange €340, or $370 if they buy in via their partypoker accounts, for a 25,000 stack and then they get to play to blinds that increase every 40-minutes.

Although the prizes on offer depend on the number of entrants in the Main Event, partypoker hosted a Grand Prix Dublin earlier this year and it awarded its champion, Joseph Macari, €31,905 from a €164,700 prize pool, so it is safe to assume the Grand Prix Killarney winner will be walking away with a prize in the region of €50,000.

Day 1a of Grand Prix Killarney commences at 5:00 p.m. BST on Sep. 7 with Day 1b starting at the earlier time of 2:00 p.m. on Sep. 8. There is also a Day 1c on Sep. 8 at 7:30 p.m. which has a 25-minute clock instead of the standard 40-minutes.

Those who prefer to start their quest for glory in an online setting can play an online Day 1 at partypoker at 9:00 p.m. on Sep. 7, but this is the final online Day 1.

The charity event on the schedule is for a great cause at the funds raised will go to some of Ireland’s homeless charities. The event is a rebuy tournament and the €20 registration fee is being donated to charity, with partypoker pledging to match all rebuy and add-ons in the form of a charitable donation.

Two-thirds of the money raised will go to the Capuchin Day Centre in Dublin, with the other third being split between Pieta House and the Suicide and Self-Harm Crisis Centre.

There are some satellites still available online at partypoker so head there now if you want to try and win your way to Ireland cheaply. If you don’t have a partypoker account, download partypoker via UK & Ireland PokerNews, enter the bonus code “UKPNEWS16” when making your first deposit and partypoker will match your deposit amount 100 percent up to £250.
