The Irish Winter Festival 2009 is scheduled for the October Bank Holiday weekend where the star of the show is the €1,500 + €150 Irish Masters, a No-Limit Hold ’em freeze-out tournament. This prestigious annual event will once again kick off at the Citywest Hotel which was also home to the 2008 and 2009 Irish Open events.

First run as a stand-alone festival in Dublin’s famous Merrion Club from 2001 to 2003, the Irish Winter Festival became the Dublin leg of the European Poker Tour (EPT) in 2004. With the festivals association with the EPT, it began to attract a great many players from beyond Ireland and Britain, including the best tournament players that Europe and America has to offer. In 2008, 33-year-old amateur player, Fiachra Meere, from County Clare, won the Irish Masters main event with second place going to Chris Woods, who took home €106,000 and the third place prize of €68,500 was taken by John Raftery. The Irish Masters that year had a total prize pool of €634,500 and is expected to be much bigger this year as the festival continues to gain in popularity.
