If you mean online sats to the Main Event, they've been running for coming up to 2 weeks now on Microgaming (StanJames, BetVictor, Betsafe)

Sats start at 2 into a 10fo or 10r game.

The 10fo game is for a 75 token, for a ticket only game on Tuesdays (500 value)
The 10r game is for a 200 token, for a package game on Sundays (1500 value)

The numbers aren't great at the moment, with most games having just one ticket. Sunday's package game had 2 packages and 40 for 3rd.

Not all Microgaming skins are running satellites (Betsafe isn't as an example). The list of sites running satellites can be found here.

Hi,

Yeah loads of online satellites. There are basically three different groups of online qualifiers coming into Dublin over the three weeks and our aim is to attract a lot of UK and Irish players who are bankrolled to play all events to stay in the hotel for the entire two weeks.

For the Irish Poker Cup Microgaming are running satellites as Flushdraw mentioned. Click here for details: http://irishpokercup.com/online-satellites/

For the Mega Poker Series William Hill are the headline sponsor and there are other iPoker skins running satellites. Details of satellites for MPS Barcelona are currently on the William Hill site (here: http://poker.williamhill.com/promoti...ries/mps-2015/) but the satellites for MPS Dublin will follow a very similar format and I'll post here as soon as everything is up on the site.

For the Redbet Live Dublin event you can qualify here: https://www.redbet.com/en/poker/prom...et_live_dublin
We also have loads of live satellites planned, we'll be giving out 60 satellite tokens at all upcoming Dublin Poker Nights games. I'll post here as soon as we have the live satellite schedule confirmed.


Full event schedule coming very soon.


Cheers,
Rob.

Asked and answered your honour. There are a number of operators involved and Poker Ireland and Dublin Poker Nights are handling the logistics and operations side of thing throughout.

Nick O'Hara is likely to be TD, will be confirmed shortly.

Are all the operators involved in all 3 events or are different operators looking after different events?

Hi Ciaran

The entire Dublin Poker Invasion - from 1st to 14th Sept - logistics, event co-ordination, staffing etc is being executed by Dublin Poker Nights and Poker Ireland. Fintan Gavin is the owner of the Irish Poker Cup and we will be working with Fintan, Seamus and Connie during the MPN Poker Tour Dublin event (1st to 6th Sept).

Dublin Poker Nights are the primary promoter of the Mega Poker Series & RedBet Live in partnership with Poker Ireland. Stephen and I are putting this whole event together in terms of marketing and organisation and the main landing page for Irish players to find information about the Dublin Poker Invasion (1st to 14th Sept) is www.dublinpokernights.ie

Here's the full breakdown of everyone's involvement with each event during the invasion.

MPN Poker Tour Dublin : €500 Entry Fee - €250,000 Guaranteed Prize-pool
The live event promoters for the MPN Poker Tour Dublin include Fintan Gavin (www.irishpokercup.com), Seamus Birt (Northern Poker), Connie O'Sullivan (Cue Club Killarney and Macau Cork), Stephen Mc Lean (Poker Ireland) and myself (Dublin Poker Nights). We're all working together with MPN to ensure we hit the €250,000 prize-pool guarantee through qualifying hundreds of players in live and online satellites.
A full live satellite schedule will be available very soon to cover Ireland, UK and Europe.
Clodagh and MPN are putting a huge amount of backing and promotion behind the online satellites. There are already players qualified from a number of different places and no overlays in the satellites so far (15 players qualified so far I think and they've only just started).
There are two sites on MPN that I think our players will readily recognise and trust. Players can click here http://www.stanjames.com/uk/802/poke...ur-2015-dublin to qualify for the MPN Poker Tour Dublin Irish Poker Cup on Stan James or here http://www.betvictor.com/poker/en/co...mpn-poker-tour to qualify on Bet Victor. There will be an added seat (worth €500) in the satellite on Tues 16th June so great value.


Mega Poker Series: €800 Entry Fee - €250,000 Estimated Prize-pool
We're working closely with Alex Teufel of Mega Poker Series to ensure as many as 200 travelling players take part in Mega Poker Series Dublin as well as live and online qualifiers. 1% of the main event prize-pool is deducted for the MPS League so there are a good number of players following this tour around Europe.
Mega Poker Series Barcelona takes place at the end of July/ early August and they are expecting 500 players for the €800 main event there. Mega Poker Series has normally had fields of between 250 and 500 players over the last 4 years.
William Hill will have the landing page up for the Mega Poker Series Dublin qualifiers soon. The satellites will run in a very similar format to Mega Poker Series Barcelona. Click here http://poker.williamhill.com/promoti...ries/mps-2015/ to see information and the satellite schedule for MPS Barca.


RedBet Live: €350 Entry Fee - €100,000 Estimated Prize-pool
We're working closely with Marcin Jablonski of RedBet to ensure a successful RedBet Live Dublin event. RedBet are fairly new to the live events market as far as I know but they recently had 1,148 players in their RedBet Live Rozvadov €350 main event. Satellites have already started on RedBet without overlays and we have players qualified from Sweden and elsewhere already. Marcin mentioned previously that he thinks he'll get a lot of players travelling from Poland to play this event and they've also just started advertising on thehendonmob.com home page so I'm sure we'll catch the attention of a few UK players too.
Players can qualify here: https://www.redbet.com/en/poker/prom...et_live_dublin


I hope this answers your question. Hope to see you there.

Kind regards
Rob

Would be really nice to see a decent 6 max tourney run at just one Irish run festival. I see there's a high roller one day 6 max event that realistically may not run or maybe get 10 of the best regs playing but why is there never a 200/500 well structured 6 max event.

I know there's cost implications but I'm confident a 2/3% rake increase would cover it and still get a decent turnout.
