WINTER POKER FESTIVAL FROM PADDY POWER POKER
Irish online poker firm gears up with online satellites
Paddy Power Poker.com released full details of the Irish Winter Festival this week, scheduled to take place between the 25th and 27th October 2008. The festival will be headlined by the Irish Masters (a tournament with an estimated prizepool of Euro1 million) and also features two one-day side event tournaments.
The Irish Masters is a Euro 1 500 + Euro 150 buy-in No Limit Hold'em freezeout tournament with a capacity for 800 players and will take place at the Citywest Hotel. Starting on Saturday October 25th and running for three days, the tournament will pit the cream of the Irish poker community against the best the rest of the world has to offer.
The side event tournaments will consist of a Euro 200 + Euro 20 buy-in No Limit Hold'em rebuy tournament (with rebuys available for 90 minutes) on Sunday October 26th and a Euro 500 + Euro 50 buy-in No Limit Hold'em freezeout tournament on Monday October 27th.
"We are very excited to confirm our sponsorship of the 8th annual Irish Winter Festival of Poker", said Paddy Power, Communications Manager for PaddyPowerPoker.com. "We are building on the back of a successful Irish Open and will spare no effort in making the Irish Masters a 'poker player's tournament', well structured and accessible to both local and international players."
