The Ladbrokes Irish Poker Festival is Coming Soon!

Share this
Do you have a little Irish in you? Want to test your ‘luck o’ the Irish’ in a big way? If so, dust off that four leaf clover, grab that rabbits’ foot and get ready for the Irish Poker Festival. The action takes place at the Irish National Events Centre (INEC) in Killarney, Co Kerry, Ireland for three days this October 2nd through- 4th and Ladbrokes Poker wants to send you there!

Be right in the thick of things because the INEC is at the center of the busy hotel and leisure complex and players who win prize packages will be staying at the Gleneagle Hotel, which is right by the bustling INEC. So when you take a break from the poker tables, soak up some Irish hospitality with a wide range of night-life filled with Irish music and having the craic -all within walking distance! And just what does having a craic mean? It is a traditional Irish word defining what you will be doing in Killarney; having fun, enjoyment, abandonment, or lighthearted mischief - often in the context of drinking or music!

This year, the three day Irish Poker Festival will showcase the €550 Main Event which will feature a real pot ‘o gold - a whopping €250,000 guaranteed prizepool! And players will have plenty of time to make their best moves with a $15,000 chip starting stack and one hour blinds. Plus players will also earn European ranking points for participating! The Festival also includes two side tournaments: a two day €270+30 buy-in tournament on Saturday, October 3rd and a one day €150+20 buy-in tournament on Sunday October 4th. And of course when you win your trip on Ladbrokes Poker, you will have exclusive access to Ladbrokes hospitality facilities with a game room offering pool and darts to help you relax in between all those winning hands!

Last year every event at the Irish Poker Festival was a complete sell-out, setting a European record with 832 players competing in the Main Event. When the smoke cleared after three days of non-stop poker action it was lucky Irish local lad Jimmy McSweeney who walked away with 1st Place bragging rights and €100,000. And this year promises to be even bigger and better!

But why not plan to be there to get in the action yourself? You can for as little as just €3 + 0.30! A limited number of Ladbrokes Irish Poker Festival Main Event Packages are available for €1,000 (€950 + €50) but thanks to Ladbrokes Poker, you can get your seat way cheaper by winning one of these satellites:

•    Monday – Saturday Satellites held throughout the day for just €3 + 0.30
•    Monday – Saturday Satellites Daily Final at 20:30GMT for €20 + 2
•    Sunday Weekly Final at 20:30 GMT for a buy-in of €100 +10

With all of these satellites running until September 20th, now is the time to start playing to win one! And when you come out on top, you will win a prize package that includes your €550 buy-in to the Main Event and three nights B&B at the Gleneagle hotel.
