WPT Ireland starts today

Thursday, 5 January 2012

Despite the obvious charms of the Bahamas and Australia a host of top pros will be staying closer to home for the next few days as the World Poker Tour hits Dublin.

The first ever WPT Ireland (brought to us in association with PKR.com) takes place at the CityWest Hotel and has a buy-in of €2,500. Some of the UK's finest poker talents will be making the short hop across the Irish Sea including the likes of Jake Cody, Matt Perrins, John Eames and November Niner Sam Holden.

The action gets under way at 2pm today (late registration until 9.30pm) with the latest WPT champion crowned on Sunday.

Join us over the next few days for full updates.
