PaddyPower Poker just confirmed the full tournament schedule for the Irish Winter Festival (IWF) 2013. With seven events in total – Crazy Pineapple and IWF Mini are new to the tournament schedule – the tables will explode with action and culminate in the €1,125 NLH Main Event.
The Burlington Hotel will play host to the incredibly popular IWF when it goes live in Dublin from October 25th – 28th, 2013. The four day long festival is sure to be one of your favorite stops of the year and the seven events are going to add a little spice and variety to your game choices.
Saturday, October 26th, will put cards in the air in the first-ever €55 buy-in Crazy Pineapple poker tournament. Crazy Pineapple may sound…well…crazy but it’s a great poker variant that puts some extra zing in deciding what strategy to use when you are dealt three hole cards and have to discard one after the flop.
The two-day IWF Mini event opens doors to a big tournament Main Event experience only at a much smaller cost when it kicks off on Sunday, October 27th with a €225 buy-in. You are going experience all the thrills and chills of a longer structure with a great payoff for €900 less than the Main Event.
“The IWF festival is one event I look forward to every year; you know there is always something a bit whacky to get involved in! We’re particularly excited about our newest addition to the schedule, the Crazy Pineapple tournament. Not only has it got the best name of any poker tournament ever, it’s also a great format which generates lots of action. Anyone making fruit puns at the table will be fined chips, though” said a Paddy Power spokesman.

The Irish Winter Festival has become a tradition and runs during the October Bank Holiday weekend in Dublin City Centre — in conjunction with the Jackpot Card Club. Novelty side events like Blind Man's Bluff, Mythical, and Win The Button, along with the always fun and entertaining night festivities in the bar — Beer Pong, Revolving Darts, and Flip for a Drink – have become famous in the four-day festival.
Get ready to play and rub elbows with some of poker’s greats that normally attend the IWF, like WSOP Finalists Eoghan O Dea, Irish Open Champions Niall Smyth, Neil Channing, Marty Smyth, and others.
