Countdown Is On For the Irish Poker Festival Killarney; Starts Sep. 28
Table Of Contents
The INEC Arena at Gleneagles Hotel in Killarney is gearing up for an incredible poker festival from the good folks at the Irish Poker Tour. Running from September 29 through October 2, The Irish Poker Festival features more than a dozen events with buy-ins ranging from €80 up to €2,500, the latter reserved for a massive Pot-Limit Omaha event that has a whopping €75,000 guaranteed prize pool.
Everything kicks off on September 28 with the €150 buy-in The Warm-Up, the perfect way to start what will be a fantastic few days of poker accompanied by the world-famous Irish craic. The Irish Poker Festival has combined guarantees in excess of €450,000, a hefty amount only made possible by players' amazing support for the Irish Poker Tour.
Players are looking forward to locking horns and butting heads across all The Irish Poker Festival's tournaments, but there are a handful of events that stand out from the crowd, events that have recreational players and professionals alike tingling with excitement.
The Irish Poker Cup serves as the festival's Main Event. Each of the five Day 1s costs €500 to enter, and for that, you receive a generous helping of 50,000 chips and play to an excellent blind structure where the blinds increase every 30-minutes. Each of those Day 1s is a freezeout. However, you can play in as many of the flights as you wish, a format that has proven popular with Irish Poker Tour attendees. The Irish Poker Cup guarantees to dish out at least €200,000 to the in-the-money players, but the end pot is likely to be much larger.
The Irish Omaha Championship is the other event that is sure to be a huge hit. Commanding a €2,500 buy-in and guaranteeing to award not a cent less than €75,000, this is the largest-ever Pot-Limit Omaha tournament held in the Emerald Isle. Taking it down not only comes with a bankroll-boosting prize, but gets your name written into poker's history books as the player who conquered the biggest PLO tournament Ireland has ever seen.
Finally, thanks to player demand, the Irish Poker Festival features a €2,000 buy-in Super High Roller No-Limit Hold'em event that comes with a €50,000 guarantee. Satellites for all three mentioned tournaments are available at the iconic INEC Arena in Killarney.
