2012 Student Poker Masters announced

Thursday, 10 November 2011

Students will get a chance to win back some of their tuition fees next year as the paddypowerpoker.com announced the return of the Student Poker Masters.

The €100+€10 event takes place at the Burlington Hotel in Dublin on Saturday 10th March 2012. Once a final table is reached play will be suspended with the final nine resuming battle on the eve of the Irish Open (Thursday 5th April 2012) to see who gets the lion's share of the estimated €20,000 first prize and a seat in the Irish Open main event worth €3,500.

Jamie Flynn, who won this year's Student Masters title said, "When I heard that paddypowerpoker.com was awarding the winner of the Student Masters a seat into the Irish Open, this tournament became a must-play for me. It was always a dream of mine to play in the Irish Open and I can tell you now it certainly did not disappoint."

Monthly freeroll qualifiers will take place on the first Sunday of the month at paddypowerpoker.com from 4th December until 4th March. €5 rebuy qualifiers will also run at paddpowerpoker.com every Monday from 7th November.

"Following the sold out event earlier this year, we couldn't wait to get working on a bigger and better Student Masters event for 2012." said Paddy Power, Communications Manager for paddypowerpoker.com.

"Players lucky enough to reach the final table will get an opportunity to play under the lights of the Irish Open 2012 feature table. The overall winner will then represent the students in the Irish Open Main Event 2012 the following day, playing against some of the best poker players in the world for approximately €550,000 first prize. It doesn't get much better than that!"

Students wanting to qualify can try their luck at paddypowerpoker.com with a first deposit bonus of up to $2,000. Sign up here.
