The 2013 poker calendar is set to get off to a flying start as the World Poker Tour heads to Ireland for the WPT National event in Dublin.
Railbirds unable to make it across the Irish Sea will be able to follow all the action courtesy of tournament sponsor PKR.com which will be streaming the action. The Voice of Poker Jesse May will be on commentary duties alongside a number of top pros for the final table and an exclusive high stakes cash game.“Dublin is a great city and the Irish are great company at the table,” said Team PKR Pro and this month's Bluff Europe interviewee Vladimir Geshkenbein. “The mix of PKR qualifiers, locals and top pros creates pure entertainment, and everyone loves Jesse, so it seems like we’re in for another all-action, party weekend. It should be the perfect start to the year.” In addition to the €1,200+€120 Main Event, a full schedule of side events will be run throughout the week, with buy-ins ranging from a very affordable €60 right up to the €2,500+€200 buy-in double chance High Roller. Another new addition is the two-day, €500+€65 buy-in "Daily Star 500" – which should pack in the crowds.Packages worth $3,000 are up for grabs in a series of satellites at PKR.com. New players using the bonus code DUBLIN5 will be given a free ticket to the site's WPT Dublin Quarter Final as well as earning a 125% first deposit bonus up to $500.
