Partypoker-Sponsored Irish Poker Open Event Slated for April
Since 2019 that it has last gone live, the Irish Poker Open is set to hold physically from April 11 to April 18, 2022, at Dublin's Citywest Hotel and Resort. Sponsored by partypoker, an online casino and sports provider owned by Entain (LON: ENT), the event will feature 42 tournaments and total prizes ranging over a million euros.
The event will include two high roller events with €5,000 and €2,000 buy-ins for players looking to play the big stakes.
The main event will kick off on Wednesday, April 13, with a buy-in of €1,150. The opening flights will last for three consecutive days before day two on Saturday, April 16, and day three on Sunday, April 17. The final table will play out on the final day of the festival.
The 2022 Irish Poker Open comes with a degree of flexibility as participants would be able to qualify online via the partypoker site. While players can purchase buy-ins at the venue, they can also win their seats by participating in online satellites, for one cent, on partypoker.
Every week, winners of the Sunday finals will get ten free seats for the festival. Before qualifying for the Sunday finals, a player would have to win the daily Centrolls, the €4.40 phase one, and the €22 phase two, all events running on partypoker.
We are so thrilled to partner with the Irish Poker Open again after a long time away from the felt in Dublin. It’s great to be qualifying players for such an entertaining and well-managed festival. See you at the tables.
Due to COVID-19, the festival could not be held in 2020. However, last year, it was conducted online with Pavel Veksler as the top prize winner, banking €266,000. Weijie Zheng won the last live main event in 2019 and took home €300,000.
