Hellmuth, Negreanu and Lindgren to compete in Irish Open

29 Feb 2012

DUBLIN, Ireland -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Paddy Power Poker today announced some legendary U.S. poker players would be making their way to Dublin for the Irish Open 2012.

It will be the first time Phil Hellmuth, Daniel Negreanu and Erick Lindgren have played poker in the Emerald Isle and the bookmaker is offering a special deal to punters who wish to back them to win the event.

For a limited time only Hellmuth and Negreanu will be available at Paddy Power Sportsbook at the enhanced odds of 150/1 to win outright from their regular price of 80/1 along with fellow market leader, November Niner Eoghan O’Dea.

Close behind in the betting is Lindgren who joins last year’s Irish Open winner Niall Smyth and Sunday Million winner Jude Ainsworth at 100/1.

Other players sure to prove popular in the outright market include Asia Pacific Poker Tour winner Dermot Blaine (100/1), World Series of Poker main event finalist Padraig Parkinson (125/1), World Poker Tour Championship Event finalist John O’Shea (125/1) and WSOP runner up Stuart Fox (200/1).

A variety of other markets will be launched over the coming weeks including a series of match bets and many more names will be added to the outright betting market as well.

Paddy Power, spokesman for the bookmaker said, “We’re really excited about having such great names become part of Irish Open history.

“We’re taking a big risk offering players of the caliber of Negreanu, Hellmuth and O’Dea at almost double their usual odds - we’ve been stung plenty in the past by canny poker players recognizing great value.

“However we want to give both those playing and those watching plenty of action to keep things interesting so keep your eyes peeled for more great Irish Open betting markets coming up.”

Players can still win one of more than 80 seats at Paddy Power Poker for the Irish Open 2012 being held this Easter Bank Holiday weekend in The Burlington Hotel, Dublin from April 6 to April 9, 2012.
