          Just want to let Chris Dowling know that I can't play any of the remaining qualifying tournaments so it looks like the 2013 Irish rankings title is his. Congratulations to him and well played. Enjoy your Xmas break.
          Many thanks to Ciaran for running the rankings and I believe he will continue doing so next year. Also thanks to the sponsors for providing the various prizes.
          Well done again Chris.

              2014




              2014 Rankings can be found here. All information including Rankings, upcoming/completed tournaments, winners prize & points scoring method are listed.

              While the winners prize is up by 25% it really should be a lot more. A few meetings were had and I was pushing to get it up above the €6k mark and was close enough to managing this but in the end the feedback from Organisers was that in the current market they couldn't justify the jump without seeing a return from players.

              It really is up to all the Irish players to self-promote this if it is ever to see a proper prizepool with 5 figures. It is non-commercial and for the players and we are no longer in the situation of Promoters/Companys just handing out money for no reason. We need to give them a reason.

                Fair play to you for taking this on Ciaran. Well done to you and of course to Chris Dowling for his 2013 performances.

                  I'll definately add a Macau festival ticket to the 2014 winners prize. As I havent set dates or anything like that yet, you can take it the ticket will be for either the summer festival game or the Xmas festival game that is traditionally held on the 1st weekend in December.



                  If the IPO is back in Killarney in 2015 as I fully expect it to be, you can take it that I will add a seat for the IPO Killarney as well, along with a bedroom for 2 nights.

                  Thanks for going to the trouble of doing this Ciaran.

                      1st game of the 2014 Season kicks off this Saturday (4th) in JP McCann's Village Green Card club in Tallaght with a €1k buyin capped at 72 players and a guaranteed Prize of €25k for the winner. Seats are filling up well and there are 5 Tickets minimum up for grabs in Satelites on Weds/Friday this week as well as a last chance saloon Turbo on the day.

                      Direct buyin still available on the BoylePoker client @ €940 - Reg Free

                      It will be a Category C tournament or will move up to Cat B if it hits 70 players.

                          Rankings updated with first result of the year from The Village Green Card Club's €1k Event which saw Keith Brennan take Top Spot.

                          Next up is Celtic/Northern Pokers €25k Guaranteed Event in Dundalk on the 17th of this month.

                            Just a quick question, would JP's game not be C type instead of B as it was a €940 buy-in or are you including the reg fee in the total buy-in?

                            Great coverage at the weekend.

                              Every game is based on the total cost to the player, so it includes reg for all games which makes it a cat B game.

                              Just on this:

                              €1150 - 5x IPO Tokens - Boylepoker (Ciaran Corbett)
                              Surely this should go to the top 5 players instead of the winner getting all 5 tokens?

                                Hi Ollie, I am counting total Cost of Entry to a Tournament including Reg Fee to keep it straightforward.

                                TY.

                                  Hi Tony,

                                  There are 5 IPO's at the moment scheduled (London, Newcastle, Dublin, Killarney & Galway) all are multi re-entry, so the winner can pick and choose which way they want to use the 6 tokens (there is also one from Stephen McClean's Poker Ireland).


                                  Let's face it, the prize for the winner @ €3.5k is embarrassingly small in the greater scheme of things so I felt that everything should go to the winner rather than dilute it further.

                                  There is no money going into this for Advertising so in order for it to grow it really is up to all players to promote the Rankings for it to get where it should be. There is no reason why there shouldn't be a €10k plus package for the winner if companies see it as a viable advertising/promotion tool. Only the players can make this happen.

                                  I mean if I could walk into PP next year and they saw from the buzz & people talking about the Rankings that there were 20/30 people saying they were at the IO/IWF this year because they were encouraged to go/qualify due to the Rankings, those 20/30 people are generating a minimum of €4k/6k reg fees. That's what companies want to hear. Same goes for all other Festivals, just using that as an example.

                                  Alas, it is very hard to paint a long term picture for a poker player!

                                    Agreed, so maybe only included events that give some sort of prize to the rankings? Or given these events double points which should help to increase the footfall at these events giving the sponsor something back.

                                    I would also like to see it restrict to how many events can be counted by a player, I.e Say his/her top 8 events in the year, otherwise it will favour the pro's.

                                    But great idea and well done on setting it up.

                                      We have prizes donated by -

                                      Paddy Power Poker
                                      JP Poker
                                      Celtic Poker
                                      Northern Poker

                                      D4 Events

                                      So TBH, these operators will supply 80% of the qualifying games throughout the year.

                                      I thought about capping the max games a player could use to arrive at their total for the year but thought this might favour the Pro's more as obviously they could get a lot of their points in the Higher Category (generally higher buyin) Games. This would leave the smaller games less inclusive so prefer the way it is.

                                      If I'm happy with this years system, I am half toying with the idea of keeping it as a rolling system similar to the golf/tennis rankings but I'll look into that later in the year.

                                          Tis a five minute copy & paste job after each Tournament so no bother really.


                                          Mind you I don't know how TylerD does that blogging for days on end
                                          Only did it because it looked like a good game to kick off the yearly Rankings with an interesting field.


                                          Upcoming Games List updated with a couple of €15k Gtd Games up in Donegal. Awaiting a few more firm dates on some other Tournaments to be added.

                                                            Live Irish Poker Rankings are delighted to announce a significant boost to this years prizepool to the value of €3500. The Home of Irish Poker Boylepoker felt that the current prizepool didn't properly reflect the importance of the Rankings and have decided they would like to boost the profile by adding an Irish Open Ticket to this years total.


                                                            Boylepoker have really taken the lead in promoting Irish Poker, supporting numerous Live countrywide Events with online Satelites including JP McCanns €1k, ACOP, European Deepstack & Macau Cork so far this year not to mention their own Flagship IPO Series.


                                                            In conjunction with their own 20% Added IPO Promotion where players can earn 20% on top of any cash at an IPO Main Event by accumulating 1000 iPoints on Boylepoker in consecutive months, this prize (IO Ticket) will be awarded to the player who finishes highest in the Live Irish Poker Rankings for 2014 who has also raked 1000 iPoints on BoylePoker by the start of IPO Dublin in October.


                                                            Many thanks must go to Boylepoker for their continued support of the Irish Poker scene and dedication to providing value and opportunity to all Irish players.

                                                            * Prize awarded to highest finisher at 31/12/14 in the 2014 Rankings who has also accumulated 1000 iPoints on Boylepoker in 2014 up to the conclusion of the IPO Dublin in October.

                                                            Until then, time to get working on both Ranking Points & racking up those iPoints.

                                                            Good Luck all.
