Ireland is such a beautiful country, just thinking about it floods one's thoughts with images of lucky shamrocks, castles, faeries, and legendary poets.
The Emerald Isle boasts its own famous slogan, "Erin Go Braugh" which means Ireland Forever, and can be heard the world over on the 17th of March, Saint Patrick's Day. Ireland has a rich history and much to be proud of, including their own major poker event, the Irish Open.
The 2008 Irish Open will be held on March 19th-24th at the Citywest Hotel in Dublin, with a guaranteed prize pool of €3 million. That is a huge pot of gold, amounting to over a whopping 4 million US Dollars.
In anticipation of this huge event, VC Poker has announced the start of their Irish Open qualifying tournaments which will begin on November 19th.
VC poker will be offering an exciting super satellite promotion, in which players with the "luck of the Irish" can win their way to the Irish Open for as little as $2.20. The complete prize package is worth $8,500 and will include not only the buy-in to the Irish Open, but spending money, air flight, and hotel accommodations.
The winner of this huge prize package will have to make his or her way through two stages of qualifying satellites to arrive at the super satellite event. Players can also bypass the qualifying satellites and pony up the $320 buy-in to the super satellites.
The super satellite events will start November 25th and be held every Sunday. As an added bonus, VC Poker is offering a second chance tournament in March. For those players that lost their lucky shamrock and didn't win the first time around, they will have a second chance to go to Dublin.
VC Poker is owned by the 60 year old Victor Chandler Company, which operates in 160 countries around the globe.
Put your seat in a seat to not only have a shot at becoming a millionaire at the Irish Open, but you will get a 200% deposit bonus up to $600 and $35 FREE cash! The poker bonus is automatic when you download VC Poker and deposit through PokerWorks!
