If you have not been keeping your eyes on the Irish casino news recently, one of the greatest poker tournaments in the world is about to take place here in Ireland and that is the Paddy Power Irish Open; believed to be the longest running Texas Hold’em tournament in Europe and second only to the WSOP (World Series of Poker) held each year in Las Vegas. The tournament is to be held in The Burlington Hotel in Dublin from April 22nd to 25th over the Easter weekend and you can be there for very little money courtesy of Paddy Power Poker. The normal entry fee for this tournament is €3200 plus €300 but through various qualifying tournaments there are a number of packages up for grabs which include the entry fee plus spending money and hotel accommodation. The cheapest way in via the “cheap seats tournaments but you have to be very quick now as the final day for these tournaments is tomorrow. There are three Irish Poker Open packages worth a staggering €4600 each available on Sundays at the €200 plus €20 freeze out tournaments and two €3500 packages on Thursdays but these will stop very soon so if you want to be a part of this great tournament you have to move fast. As an additional incentive Paddy Power Poker is again running the “sole survivor” competition which is worth an enormous €100,000 to the winner. All you have to do is qualify through one of Paddy Power Poker satellites and the winner will be the last qualifier to remain in the main tournament and if you happen to win prize money in the main tournament you get to keep that as well. There has never been a better time to play at Paddy Power Poker..
