The partypoker Fitz November Poker Festival - Nov 30th to Dec 4th (Official Thread)

The 2017 November Fitzwilliam Poker Festival is quickly approaching and we have a fantastic line up to rival even last year’s success! At the 2016 event we were completely Sold Out for Every Event with the Main Event Hugely Oversubscribed and a Main Event Prize Pool of €92,800, the highest in the clubs history! Total 2016 Festival Prize Money was €131,000. Below are some details of the 2017 Fitzwilliam Poker Festival programme:

  • 2017 Fitz Poker Festival Sponsored by partypoker
  • Broadcasting on Eirsport 1 in December
  • Media Partner – Sunshine Radio
  • €50,000 Guaranteed Main Event Prize Pool
  • Lead Commentary by “The Voice of Poker” – Jesse May
  • Colour Commentary by Irish Poker Legend – Padraig Parkinson
  • Estimated 2017 Total Festival Prize Pool €135,000

We anticipate demand for the 2017 events to be very high and we hope to repeat the success of the 2016 campaign. General tickets for the €50,000 Guaranteed Main Event "The Fitzwilliam Poker Championship" are now on sale. Follow the link below for further festival details and to Book your Early Bird Main Event Ticket.

Hi Secondhand,

No because 50 euro is the registration fee. The reg fee wouldn't be going into the prize pool.

Hi,
I have a couple of questions:

1) If I player busts on Day 1a, can he only re-enter on Day 1a (assuming he busts before the first break) ? Or can he re-enter on Day 1b instead?

Either ways I think re-entering window should be extended up to the second break, starting with 45k chips is pretty hard to bust within the first 4 levels but much more likely to bust on level 5/6/7, so it would be good to have the re-entering window extended to 7 levels.

2) I am trying to register online for Day 1a and I see the cost of entry is 460€, 10€ are for Paypal charges which is fine, but shouldn't this fee be waived if I pay via Credit Card directly?

Thank you.

Hi Viper,

Happy to answer your questions.

1) The answer here is yes if there are tickets available for Saturday but i would say that opportunity is unlikely as it was sold out last year and will likely be the same again this year.

2) I take your point on the buy in window at 8.20pm but thats the decision that has been taken and its the same as last year. From memory there were 10-15 that re bought before the cut off time. I will pass on your viewpoint to the PD.

3) Yes if you pay directly there is no paypal charges. You can register and do so through the online poker booking system on the website and the cost will be the standard 450.

Any other questions do let me know.

Regards

Paul
