Hi All

Paul O’Reilly and JP McCann are happy to announce details of the Irish Poker Open 2017, which will take place from 27th March – 3rd April 2017 in the prestigious Citywest Hotel, Dublin. The buy-in for this event will remain at €1025 + €125 with €500,000 Guaranteed and the festival will once again feature a full schedule of side events and cash games to capture the imagination of poker players both recreational and professional.

Online satellites are now taking place on paddypowerpoker.com, Betfair.com and partypoker.com with a wide range of entry level amounts. Ipoker network wide satellites will be starting shortly.

“It is always exciting to launch the Irish Poker Open each year, and we hope to make the next one even bigger and better in 2017. We’ve made some slight changes to the schedule next year for logistical reasons and to ensure players can make the most of the facilities in Citywest Hotel. We were blown away by the support last year in the poker community and we continue to listen to all the feedback to ensure Europe’s oldest poker tournament remains the people’s tournament.”

The Irish Poker Open is the longest running No Limit Texas Hold'em poker festival in Europe and the second most historic in the world after the World Series of Poker, Las Vegas. First organized in 1981 by Terry Rogers, a well-known Irish bookmaker, the tournament is now world famous for its electric atmosphere, the famous poker faces that return every year, and the Irish craic had by all. The Irish Poker Open is unique in it's player experience due to a full live entertainment schedule to accompany the extensive poker schedule. The entertainment schedule will include live music, sumo wrestling and pool and beer pong competitions.

The big change this year is that the Irish Poker Open is not running across Easter weekend. The opportunity arose last year to merge the Irish Poker Open and Norgesmesterskapet i poker to create a bigger 18 day poker festival. The Burlington Hotel just wasn't big enough for what we have planned for the future of the event. In agreeing to move the Irish Poker Open to Citywest Hotel it came at the cost of not being able to host the 2017 Irish Poker Open on Easter weekend. However we have already put pen to paper to secure the long-term future of the event returning to the historic dates of Easter weekend from 2018.


Full details and schedule for the Irish Open 2017 can be found at: http://www.irishpokeropen.com/.

In additional to the Irish Poker Open will also be hosting the partypoker Millions and the Norwegian Championships during the Irish Poker Festival.

The partypoker Millions has a massive £6,000,000 Guaranteed with a very affordable buy-in of £550 on Day 1 or £5,300 on Day 2.

The Norwegian Championships will be returning to Ireland for the sixth year in a row, and is the largest single nation poker event in the world with over 1200 players participating in their main event.

This year certainly will be going bigger and better.

Hi JP,
Just had a quick look at schedule. Events 31 and 39 seem to have pretty shallow starting stacks, at 10K, for PLO events.

Hi Mick,

The structures have been the same for the past 5 years. The Norwegians like their action fast

Question

Hi,
I've flown to Dublin for the Irish Open in the past, but haven't yet had a chance to participate in the Norwegian Championship.

I understand that previously, some of the Norwegian events were exclusively for Norwegians, whilst others were open events.

Please can you clarify which of the events Brits are NOT permitted to enter?

Thanks in advance...

Hi Chadwell,

NM events are Norwegian Championships events. You must be either Norwegian or have a Norwegian tax number to play.

Ah, so I couldn't enter the JP Poker Masters Day 1 being from here? Ah well, it was the right sort of price point

Can anyone turn up at this event and play in cash games etc?

There is a column and the column is called NM, and it says Yes in that column for the JP masters.

What is that column for with all the Yes in it?

Looks like a copy & paste error from last year. Column 1 with any NM marked events is what i would go by.

Cool so if not playing in a particular tournament, can you turn up for a pint and watch, maybe play Q cash game etc?
