Dublin Poker Festival

Dublin Poker Festival

Monday, 5 January 2015

The Irish Poker Open might be the top annual festival on the Emerald Isle; however, before the action gets underway in April, Paddy Power Poker will be hosting the Dublin Poker Festival.

Set to get underway at the end of January, the mid-stakes festival will feature "Class A Dealers at Every Table" during its marquee events: the Amateur Championship of Poker (ACOP) and European Deepstack Poker Championship.

Taking place between January 30 and February 8, the Dublin Poker Festival is already promising one of the finest live tournament experiences in the world thanks to Paddy Power Poker's organisation.

The Amateur Championships of Poker enters is now looking to its third event. In 2015 the buy-in will once again be €200 and for that fee you'll receive a 25,000 chip starting stack and 40 minute levels.

If anteing up almost €800 to play two tournaments is beyond your bankroll then you can forgo the direct buy-in options and qualify online. Thanks to a daily schedule of qualifiers on Paddy Power Poker, players of all skill levels can win themselves a seat at the Dublin Poker Festival from as little as €10.

The €570 European Deepstack Poker Championships is entering its 8th season and this year players will receive a 100,000 chip starting stack.

As well as a slew of online options, Paddy Power will also be giving two lucky Dublin Poker Festival champions a seat in the €3,500 Irish Poker Open Main Event. Although the festival might not be as prestigious as the Irish Poker Open, the action should be just entertaining and a great opener for 2015.
