Tournament sponsor paddypowerpoker.com has unveiled details of the 2013 Irish Open and there are a number of changes to report, the most significant being a big reduction in the buy-in.
Next year's tournament, which will be held at the Burlington Hotel in Dublin from 29 March until 1 April, will have a buy-in of €2,000+€250 compared to €3,200+€300 in 2012. "Europe's favourite poker tournament is back but after listening to players on the ground we've decided to lower the Irish Open buy in and open the event up to suit many more pockets,” said Paddy Power, spokesman for Paddy Power Poker. “It still has the same prestige, the same history, and the same great value like Sole Survivor.”The popular Sole Survivor competition makes a welcome return with the player lasting longest in the Irish Open walking away with a €50,000 cash bonus as well as buy-ins to the 2013 World Series of Poker Main Event and the 2014 Irish Open. Anyone who qualifies for the Irish Open main event at paddypowerpoker.com is eligible to take part in the Sole Survivor contest.Weekly Irish Open main event satellites start this Sunday, 25 November at 8 pm at paddypowerpoker.com.
