I will have satellites on Boyles next week - probably €5 daily feeders to a €50 super satellite with 2 main event tickets guaranteed.

I will confirm full details as soon as I receive the confirmation.

Do players who bust on Day 1a have precedence to re-enter on Day 1b if they register the same night (after busting) ? No risk for 1b to be sold out and not allow re-entries I guess?

Players who bust Day 1A and wish to re-enter Day 1B will be treated the same as a new player entering the tournament no precedence will be given, we can cater for 660 players plus alternates on each starting day, we will seat all players who wish to play.
