5 Jan 2017
Online satellites are now taking place on Paddy Power Poker and Betfair Poker and have a wide range of entry level amounts.
"It is always exciting to launch the Irish Poker Open each year, and we hope to make the next one even bigger and better in 2017. We've made some slight changes to the schedule next year for logistical reasons and to ensure players can make the most of the facilities in Citywest Hotel. We were blown away by the support this year in the poker community and we continue to listen to all the feedback to ensure Europe’s oldest poker tournament remains the people's tournament, with a lot of craic on the side."
The Irish Poker Open is the longest running no-limit Texas Hold'em poker festival in Europe and the second most historic in the world after the World Series of Poker, Las Vegas. First organized in 1981 by Terry Rogers, a well-known Irish bookmaker, the tournament is now world famous for its electric atmosphere, the famous poker faces that return every year, and the general craic that is had by all every night in the hotel bar.
