Paddy Power Poker has announced details of next year's Irish Open. The 2011 event will take place from 22nd to 25th April at the Burlington Hotel in Dublin with the buy in set at €3,200+€300.
The big news for the 2011 event is a change in structure with players receiving a starting stack of 20,000 chips rather than 10,000 as has previously been the case. Paddy Power will once again be running its Last Man Standing promotion where the best placed Paddy Power qualifier can pocket €100,000 in addition to their tournament prize money.“It was a pleasure to see so many people turn out for the Irish Open 2010 and in these challenging times to beat the record for main event entries (708) was a testament to the loyalty of our players and the ever improving reputation of the event," said Paddy Power, Communications Manager for paddypowerpoker.com."Next year’s Irish Open will be bigger and better than ever before and we have already started the preparations to make sure of this. Many of our players sought an increased starting stack and we are delighted to deliver on this for 2011. We are also working on a side event schedule that will provide more variety for our players throughout the weekend.” Qualifiers will be up and running at the end of the month.Keep up to date with all the news from the poker world by following us on Twitter and Facebook.
