Seven-time world snooker champion Stephen Hendry said, "I'm excited to play at PokerStars Festival Dublin. I have participated in a number of PokerStars live poker events which are always really fun and make for a great atmosphere. I'm looking forward to 'having the craic,' as they say in Ireland, and playing against some of Europe's greatest poker players."

The PokerStars Festival tour sets down on the Emerald Isle for a seven-day stop in the buzzing capital of Dublin from 25 September to 1 October, offering players 15 different tournaments, more than €750,000 in guarantees and the chance to share great times with friends, well known players and fellow poker fans.
