Ladbrokes Irish Poker Festival returns next month

Friday, 17 September 2010

Players will be able to enjoy Irish hospitality at its finest as the third annual Ladbrokes Irish Poker Festival heads to the Irish National Events Centre in Killarney next month.

The three-day festival runs from 1st to 3rd October with a quartet of events pencilled in. Top billing goes to the €550 + €50 Main Event which has a guarantee of €250,000. Stacks start at 15,000 chips with a one hour clock so there should be plenty of value to be had. The festival also includes a pair of side events, a two day €270+30 tournament Saturday 2nd October and a one day €150+20 tournament on Sunday 3rd October. There's also a special satellite at 9pm on Saturday 3rd October which will see players compete for a trip on the famous Ladbrokes Poker Cruise.

Englishman Thomas Rolfe outlasted a monster field of 752 runners to take last year's title and with it a first prize of €100,000.

Satellites are up and running at Ladbrokes Poker starting from just €3.
