A look at the partypoker Main Event

Players should expect some nice action from the series, which paid out €5.6 million to players in 2020. Brazil’s Pablo Brito Silva claimed the Main Event title, topping a field of 2,945 players to win €462,100. Silva was one of 22 champions who won events in the series.

The full 2021 series schedule includes a mix of No Limit Hold’em, Progressive Knockouts, and Pot Limit Omaha events.

The €1,100 Main Event comes with a €1 million guarantee and Day 1A kicks off on March 28. Two more starting flights are scheduled for April 4 and 5 in the three-day event. The tournament wraps up on April 7.

The Main Event winner not only earns the cash prize, but also a custom-made Irish Open trophy. Trophies will also be awarded to the winners of 11 other championship events.

Other partypoker Irish Open Online highlights

This year’s Irish Open Online also introduces a new event beginning on the same day as Day 1A of the Main Event. The Grand Prix Ireland is a €55 eight-max progressive knockout (PKO) event with a €250,000 guarantee.

The Grand Prix features nine starting flights between March 28 and April 5. Day 2 takes place the same day as the final flight with the final table concluding on April 6.

PKOs have become popular events with some interesting twists to a traditional bounty tournament. Instead of claiming an opponent’s complete bounty, only a portion goes to the winning player.

The other portion is added to the winning player’s bounty prize. This means bounties become more valuable the deeper a player gets in the event.

Another Irish Open event is the €530 JP Masters, a two-day event with a €250,000 guarantee. The tournament also features three starting flights beginning April 2.

The €320 Heads Up tournament promises a €25,000 guarantee and begins March 30. Most events also feature mini versions for those with smaller bankrolls. Here’s a look at the complete schedule:

Partypoker plans numerous satellites

Beyond mini options, partypoker is once again ramping up qualifiers to gain entry to major events. For the Main Event, satellites begin at just €0.01 with finals held every Sunday before the start of the festival. The finals guarantee 30 seats every week.

Players advancing in these “centrolls” move on to €1.10 buy-in Phase 1 events and then to the €11 Phase 2. Those who advance there then head to the weekly satellite final.

There is no direct buy-in to the final, so no player reaching that stage will pay more than €11. Additionally, €109 mega satellites for the Main Event will run before each Day 1.
