Ah this brings back memories. :P

I dealt at this once. I was the finest dealer ever to deal at poker ever.
Actually .......
I sucked balls but do you know what....it stands to kindness of poker players that no one minded and was ever so sweet to this baby poker dealer.

Stephen and Derek always do a great job. And it's got a lot of heart and soul and very friendly to all types of player.

Hi Nick,
I think you need to re-check the dates and the main event starting stack in your announcement above.

Any word on the online partner??
Dropped below 1000 players for the first time in a while last year if I'm correct ( 100% due to Grosvenor poker imo!) So to keep it going in the right direction would a guarenteed prizepool not help...
Mite be the deciding factor with people playing this or playing the 300k partypoker gran prix in killarney the month b4...

Apologies for the typos above Main Event is 30,000 starting stack.
Event dates are 25th - 30th October 2017.
I've pm'd moderators requesting errors to be corrected.


Online satellite schedule and direct buy-in online have not yet been confirmed.
I'll update here as soon as they are announced.
Nick

Sorry we missed this. The hotel is almost booked out but we still have a few rooms remaining for players. There is a 3 night minimum stay that the hotel have stipulated.

Rates:
95 per twin/ double room per night for standard room.
115 per twin/ double room per night for executive room.

Nick O'Hara is the person to contact directly in relation to room reservations.

Cheers,
Stephen.

10 minutes in a taxi will bring you to 100+ places you can get a room.

3 hours in a taxi to get home.
If I play a tournament and want to play cash after I prefer to do it in the hotel i am playing in.
Why add the cost of taxi each way to an already over priced stay in Dublin?

I had planned to come down on the Saturday and go home Sunday night, if I make it to day three then I would worry about it then. Why should I have to stay for three nights?

Sponsor

I agree with another commenter that Grosvenor ruined 2016 so who is the sponsor for 2017? At the moment a small group from Essex (10/15 players) who have been for the past 7 years are looking at Rosdov or Malta
