GOING GREEN: Live Irish Poker Open Returns, Partypoker Qualifiers Get Underway

After a two-year hiatus, the Irish Poker Open returns to the live felt April 11-18 at Citywest Hotel Dublin. Players will find  42 tournaments with buy-ins ranging from €100 to €5,000, including 14 championship events.

“We have always said how exciting it is to launch the Irish Poker Open each year, however, the launch of Irish Poker Open 2022 definitely feels a little extra special, given the particularly difficult times people have gone through over the last two years,” festival organizers Paul O’Reilly and JP McCann noted in a news release.

“We are really looking forward to welcoming all of our Irish and international players back to the Irish felt, whilst ensuring that player and staff safety remain at the forefront of our minds.

Partypoker will once again be offering online qualifying opportunities for those hoping to punch a ticket to Ireland.

What to expect from the series

Europe’s longest-running poker festival ran online at partypoker over the last two years due to the COVID-19 pandemic. But the action is once again live and continues the momentum the live game has garnered in recent months.

The Irish Open is one of the more popular European poker series. Players have some major action to look forward to. Plenty of Irish-themed entertainment is also on the menu for players heading to Dublin.

The €1,150 Main Event kicks off on April 13 with four starting flights before the championship event concludes on April 18. The last Main Event ran in 2019 with 1,807 players producing a €1.8 million prize pool.

Several other big events are also on tap rhis year including two championship events kicking off the series. The $350 No Limit Hold’em Six-Max and  €350 Eight-Game Mix are both set for April 11.

The €250 Mini Irish Open also begins on April 17 for those seeking a main event championship at a bargain price. A $1,100 Mystery Bounty event begins on the same day and should bring some added fun to the series.

Qualifying online at partypoker

Partypoker played host to the Irish Open over the last two years. Brazil’s Pablo Silva won the 2020 online event with Pavel Veksler taking the title in 2021.

The series may be returning to the live felt, but party is once again offering players a chance to qualify online for a much lower price point. The first €109 Main Event satellite is set for Feb. 6 and guarantees at least 10 Main Event seats.

However players can earn a seat into the satellite in qualifiers starting at just €0.01. These events then feed into the €22 Phase 2 satellites, where players can win a €109 entry. Here’s a look at the complete Irish Poker Open schedule.
