“It’s always exciting to launch the Irish Poker Open each year. The 2019 event smashed its €1 million guarantee after attracting 1,807 entrants to generate a massive €1,805,870 prize pool and a first prize of €300,000. We were taken aback by the support this year in the poker community. We continue to listen to all the feedback and strive to make improvements to ensure Europe’s oldest poker tournament remains the people’s tournament, with a lot of craic on the side.”
The Irish Poker Open is the longest running No Limit Texas Hold’em poker festival in Europe and the second most historic in the world after the World Series of Poker, Las Vegas. First organized in 1980 by Terry Rogers, a well-known Irish bookmaker, the tournament is now world famous for its electric atmosphere, the famous poker faces that return every year including some of the old guard and the general craic that is had by all every night in the hotel bars.
