The Ladbrokes Irish Poker Festival is a must on anyone’s Poker calendar – the 2010 event saw 633 runners in the main event alone, and 2011 is already shaping up to be bigger. The four day event will be held from the 29th September to 2nd October, with the €550 main event once again having a guaranteed prizepool of a massive €250,000.
Last year there was an exciting mix of regular online players, local Irish folk and a big group from the Nordic countries. The winner of the main event, Lars Törngren from Sweden, cashed in €75,000 from a prizepool of over €300,000.
Qualification for the Ladbrokespoker.com Irish Poker Festival is well underway with many of the packages already won. However, players can still qualify for a Killarney 2011 package (worth €1,000) or for a Main Event seat (worth €500) at Ladbrokespoker.com
Ladbrokespoker.com are giving all final tablists from this Thursday’s Killarney weekly final a free satellite ticket to the Summer Poker Festival main event on Sunday.
This could mean some of lucky players could not only win themselves a trip to Killarney but potentially get their hands on a share of a €500,000 prizepool.
Susanna Havukainen, from Ladbrokes Poker said:
