Online Poker giant Titan Poker To Choose Team For 2010 Irish Open
Leading online poker room TitanPoker.com have announced the launch of a series of satellite qualifiers to determine which players will participate on their behalf at Europe’s longest-running poker event, the Irish Open.
Each week, players registered on TitanPoker.com will have the chance to compete for a prize package worth $7,200 that includes the $4,996 tournament buy-in, five night’s accommodation in Dublin’s luxurious Burlington Hotel and over $1,000 for expenses.
These fantastic packages will be up for grabs every Sunday evening in direct $268 buy-in super satellites, but can also be qualified for via a series of smaller satellite tournaments with buy-ins starting from as little as $2.20.
The 2010 Irish Open begins on the first day of April next year and is the longest-running no-limit Texas Hold’em tournament in Europe and only the second oldest in the world after the annual World Series of Poker held in Las Vegas every summer.
A consistently popular world poker destination, Dublin also plays host to the Irish Winter Festival each year, and TitanPoker revealed that they sent a delegation of 32 players from around the world to play in the recently-concluded tournament in 2009. One of these players, German Igor Kurganov, finished in fifth place for $51,275, while two other TitanPoker qualifiers also made it into the money.
Having put up such a strong showing on the Emerald Isle last time around, TitanPoker will no doubt be hoping that their team of satellite qualifiers do even better next year – who knows, for just $2.20 it could be you enjoying the craic in Dublin this April.
