Paddy Power Irish Open Mega Satellite tonight

Sunday, 3 April 2011

Anyone still looking to qualify for next month's Irish Open should make a date with on Sunday 3rd April as the site is giving away a bucket load (and it's a very big bucket) of seats in a special qualifier.

30 packages worth almost €140,000 will be given away in the Irish Open Mega Satellite that starts at 8pm tonight. The buy-in for the event is €300+€20 with the lucky winners earning an Irish Open 2011 Main Event seat (€3,500) plus five nights' accommodation in the Burlington Hotel and travel expenses.

And that's not all. Any qualifier will be eligible to take part in the Sole Survivor contest where the last Paddy Power player elminated from the Irish Open will earn a €100,000 bonus on top of their prize money. Rob Sherwood was last year's Sole Survivor, adding the €100,000 bonus to his fourth place prize money of €163,300.

“Worth nearly €140,000, this is a Mega Satellite in all senses of the word. We couldn’t make it any easier to win an Irish Open seat on, but we’re having fun trying”, said Paddy Power, Communication Manager. “Players would be mad to try to qualify for the Irish Open anywhere but here; we have the ultimate last longest bet where the last remaining paddypowerpoker qualifier will win an EXTRA €100k. Rob was a worthy winner last year but now the question is who will take his place at the Irish Open 2011?”

The Irish Open 2011 takes place at The Burlington Hotel, Dublin from Thursday 21st April – Monday 25th April 2011.
