Just in time for Christmas, Unibet have snuck one final present into the stockings of poker players everwhere, with the announcing of their 2020 live poker schedule which kicks off in Dublin in February.
Unibet Open Dublin will take place at the Bonnington Hotel from February 26-March 1, with the €1,100 Main Event featuring three starting flights and a €250,000 guarantee.
Unibet Poker Open Dublin
This will be the Unibet Open's third visit to the Irish capital after the tour's debut in 2011 and a record-breaking event in 2018 where Paul Jux-Holderness defeated a 359-player field to win €74,900. Jux-Holderness, who hails from Bournemouth, also finished third in the €2,200 High Roller for a further €8,860.
“We’re really looking forward to our return visit to Dublin in February," said Unibet Open event manager Kasia Scanlon. "The last Unibet Open there – in 2018 – was just fantastic; it’s always an incredible atmosphere in Dublin with players having a great time, enjoying both the poker and the city’s legendary hospitality.
"Heading to Dublin is always very special for me because my very first event with Unibet was our debut festival there in 2011. We know next February’s Dublin stop is going to provide an amazing start to the 14th season of the Unibet Open.”
Other highlights of the festival include the invitational Unibet Tag Team Championship and Unibet Battle Royale tournament, as well as a €2,200 High Roller, Pot Limit Omaha, SuperStack, Progressive Knockout and #QueenRules Ladies Event to name but a few.
There is also a new €100 + €10 event on the schedule called the Mini ME which will mirror the Main Event giving players a generous 30,000 starting stack.
Further 2020 Unibet Open stops will be announced in the New Year.
Whether it's seats or packages you're after, Unibet has both as they ramp up the satellites to the Unibet Open Dublin online. There are €2,000 packages available for you to win which include your seat to the €1,100 Main Event buy-in, four night's accommodation for you and a guest, as well as €250 towards travel expenses.
You can get into these satellites for as little as one cent, with five packages guaranteed each week in the €250 qualifier on Sundays.
All Unibet qualifiers will get a free dinner each night of the event, as well as Unibet merchandise, the chance to mingle with Unibet Ambassadors and full access to the Welcome Drinks and Players Party.
2020 Dublin Poker Festival
Unibet also announced that they will be sponsoring the 2020 Dublin Poker Festival which takes place just before the Unibet Open. The 11-day festival, which also takes place at the Bonnington Hotel, features a packed schedule of nearly 40 events. They include the €570 European Deepstack Main Event and the €230 Amateur Championship of Poker. Satellites for both events will be running on Unibet Poker from early January.
2020 Unibet UK Poker Tour
Unibet also announced the fifth season of the Unibet UK Poker Tour, featuring four steps in London and Newcastle.
