There's no mention of 3k added on their website, so it looks like it's 3k guaranteed, so the prizepool only goes up once 3k in entries are met.

I'm not sure every game will kick off with this stipulation though.

Bit naive expecting player to turn up on time.

Hi, this tournament is the opening tournament. There is no minimum of players for this tournament, no fees and the 3K plus the money from re entries are going into the prize pool. Thank you

Good luck with this new venue -

Thanks for your answers to-date.

However a charter would clarify how you are going to run the event.

I may arrive late -

So what time is the latest that you can register/sit down to play the tournament

What will the blind levels be at that time.

Good luck with the venue.

I would be worried about walking out onto O'Connell street late with a few bob though. Is there even any parking nearby?

Nah, just write your name on a piece of toilet paper with a crayon, that should do it.

Yes, it will need to be photo ID

Nice place. 7 full tables with an hour wait for alternates meant that by the 2nd break they were still trying to seat alternates so no one got the option to rebuy.. Ended up a 3k freeroll with the club stumping up the 3k ... Nice bit of grub and free beer at the break... Asked 3 different staff members including the poker room manager what the rake in cash game is and got three different answers which was worrying to say the least ... All suggested it was 5% when asked what it was capped at one said 10 one said 15 and third said 20 lol definitely one of the more comfortable poker venues and hopefully they can iron out the obvious problems quickly... Chips were nice .... First deck of cards was atrocious but were replaced by a proper deck at the first break thankfully. Overall I'd rate it as a 6/10 experience.

Give the lads a break.

They are new to IPB and are after adding €3,000 which is super value for players.

I'm guessing they've had a ton of last minute stuff to get the club ready for their big opening night.

Absolutely never easy on opening night of a club. Adding €3000 to prizepool represented great value, well done for that.

Minor issues will be ironed out, and worth bearing in mind that it’s impossible to keep everyone happy. However, clarity on rake structures & amounts is crucial, and complete transparency is essential on it.

Further to what limpwhacker said in post 34 - its a nice place.

In fact its a very nice & comfortable place.

IMHO - Better than the SE or the 4 Kings for comfort etc.

Very comfortable poker room with 7 tables. Ample room between tables.
Could probably comfortable fit another three tables in the room.

Nice bar -
Free alcohol drinks table service at the Roulette & Blackjack tables
Non-alcoholic drinks table service at the poker tables.

One private bar/room for private parties.

Brief details of their poker tournaments (Thursday to Monday) are on the web site
https://www.carltoncasinoclub.com/ca...er-tournaments

NO REG Fees for Tournament Re-Entry

IMHO they will not bother with detailed posts on here as they have Facebook & their own website - which seems to be trend for some operators at the moment

Only downside - 7pm start for poker tournaments -

Wheelchair access may be a problem
