Irish Poker Festival back for 2011
The Irish Poker Festival is set to return to the emerald isle this September.
The four-day Ladbrokes-sponsored event will be held from 29 September to 2 October at the Irish National Events Centre in Killarney, with the €550 Main Event boasting a guaranteed prize pool of €250,000. A total of 633 runners entered last year’s Main Event, with the title eventually going the way of Sweden’s Lars Törngren. Qualifiers for the festival are running now at Ladbrokes Poker, with €1,000 packages and stand-alone Main Event seats both on offer.
Susanna Havukainen of Ladbrokes Poker said: “We are very excited to be bringing the Irish Poker Festival back to Killarney for a fourth year. It is truly a remarkable event that brings all of our customers together for a four-day pokerfest! The event seems like it is a long way off, but places disappear quickly so customers should start qualifying now!”
