Boylepoker.com IPO 2012

Hi All,

We're delighted to announce the dates for the Boylepoker.com International Poker Open 2012, which will take place in the Regency Hotel, Dublin next October.

The main event schedule will be as follows:
Day 1A - Friday 19th October.
Day 1B - Saturday 20th October.
Day 2 - Sunday 21st October.
Final Table [8 players] - Saturday 10th November.
Play will start at 12pm each day.

Buy-in: €200 + €30 Reg Fee.
Starting Chips: 15,000

There are a number of important notes that differ slightly to previous years of this tournament.

1. We are aiming for a field of 1,700+ players this year, with a prize-pool of €340,000 for a €200 entry fee (+ Reg). D2D have obviously set the bar really high this year having beat our attendance record at the UKIPT Nottingham, so we want to reclaim the title.
We need every player to tell everyone they know about this tournament. There is a huge player base that look forward to the IPO every year so we're really looking forward to registering 1,700+ players over the next few months.

2. Registration; is now open in the Boylepoker lobby and will be open right up to the day of the tournament, provided there are seats still available. Cash entrys will not be accepted but you can, as always, lodge your entry fee into your Boylepoker account using cash at any Boylesports office.
All players must open a Boylepoker account and register online through the Boylepoker room. Players will be able to register right up to the morning of the event on their chosen starting day [note: cash will not be accepted at the venue].

3. The first satellite will take place on Friday 18th May at 8pm (IPO Launch Party). Two seats are added for this satellite and entry costs just €5.

I will post the full blind structure soon.

Hi Kev,

No cash on the day, but you can register online on the morning of the tournament, provided there are seats available.

There is already limited availability but I was checking yesterday and they do have 25 rooms remaining for Saturday 20th Oct. If you give them a shout on +353 1 8373544 and tell the reservations desk its a poker booking they will make a room available to you.

Cheers,
Stephen.

We are running the Extra Cash Promotion again this year.

Extra Cash Promotion

If you play the IPO 2012 and are one of the last 20 promotion-qualifying players in the IPO main event, you will increase your win by €1,000! How? By simply playing and earning iPoints at Boylepoker.

From May to October, players who earn a total of 350 iPoints at Boylepoker in two single months (i.e. 700 iPoints in total, 350 in one month, and 350 in another) will be in with a chance to earn an extra €1,000 at the IPO.

Players will also have the option to qualify by earning 1000 iPoints in a single month between May to October.

Boylepoker will be adding 20 individual €1,000 cash prizes for those who qualify.

That can be changed pretty easily. If I take a couple of minutes off the Level length would people prefer it?

Jeebus chill out, I dont mind the structure ( i ve won a seat 2 nights in a row) just relaying a bit of table chat. There is a bit of skill to playing turbos too you know, little insecure there.

5Euro game to the 20 one is my guess.

Thinking I might give the IPO my first shot tonight.
