Unibet Poker To Host the 2020 IPO Dublin Festival

Unibet IPO Dublin Main Event

The dates for the International Poker Open (IPO) Dublin festival are checked by hundreds of poker players each year. It’s extremely popular but the 2020 IPO Dublin festival looked set to fall foul of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

While players won’t be flocking to the Emerald Isle to compete in this year’s IPO Dublin, they will head to Unibet Poker for a series featuring more than €150,000 worth of guaranteed prize pools.

The action gets underway on October 19 with the first of many Super Qualifiers to the IPO Main Event. These satellites have a €25 buy-in and guarantee at least five €300 Main Event seats will be won.

That Main Event takes place over two days with Day 1 shuffling up and dealing at 7:00 p.m. on October 24. €300 is what you’ll need to fork out, unless you win a seat from a satellite, and for that you receive 25,000-chips and get to play for a share of a guaranteed €50,000.

Check out the table below and feast your eyes on the full IPO Dublin schedule, which includes a €500 buy-in High Roller with a €25,000 guarantee.
