The Irish Open is back in 2019
The news you’ve all been waiting for!! The Irish Open is back in 2019 with another massive €1,000,000 GTDfor the same low buy in of €1,150.
After months of planning and organising already completed, we are delighted to announce the full schedule of events and structures for the 2019 Irish Open.
Many of last year’s sponsors are returning for this year’s Irish Open, namely partypoker, PaddyPower and iPoker.
It has been three years since JP McCann and Paul O’Reilly have taken ownership of Europe’s longest running poker festival and it has grown both in strength and numbers year on year. The Main Event saw record fields in both 2016 and 2017, with 802 and 1,129 players respectively. In 2018, the event saw a 19% increase in numbers with a Main Event total of 1,348 players. It is expected that the 2019 Irish Open will once again attain record breaking numbers! As always, the success of the Irish Open not only lies with the individual players who support the event but also the multiple poker clubs, pubs, casinos and online sites who assist in qualifying players nationwide.
The Irish Open will run for 8 days, from 15th-22nd April 2019, over the course of Easter Weekend. The venue is the four star Citywest Hotel and Golf Resort. In addition to the Irish Open Main Event with €1,000,000 Guaranteed, there will be a further 11 Irish Poker Open Championships Events, including the JP Masters, and a jam-packed schedule comprising of 27 poker tournaments in total.
The Irish Open Main Event runs from Wednesday 17th April 2019, with a choice of 4 Live Day 1s.
There will be cash games of various types and buyins running 24/7 with a 5% rake capped at €15.
As well as poker, we will also be hosting many fun activities throughout the festival with shuffleboards, beer pong, live music, player’s lounge and a farewell party currently in its planning stages! It’s going to be a good one!
