The wait is finally over, the 2021 Irish Open festival kicks off in style on March 26 with the €250,000 guaranteed Opener event.
We know Irish Open regulars are bitterly disappointed not to be jetting off to Dublin for a live version of Europe’s longest-running live poker festival, but we have done everything in our power to create a schedule and designed the tournament structures to bring you the next best thing right to the comfort of your own home.
March 26 sees the first two of 27 numbered Irish Open events shuffle up and deal. 19:05 GMT is when you need to be in your seats for the €530 buy-in Opener, which comes with a €250,000 guaranteed prize pool.
There are three starting flights for the Opener, a PKO tournament, where everyone sits down with 100,000 chips and plays to a 20-minute clock where the blinds start at 500/1,000/100a.
Late registration in the Opener remains open until the end of the ninth level, and the curtain comes down on Day 1 proceedings when only 15% of the field remains.
The one-day 7-Max Turbo Knockout also takes place on Day 1 of the Irish Open festival. it will set you back €162 unless you manage to win your way in via one of the many satellites running around the clock. €25,000 is guaranteed to be won in this fast-paced tournament.
Over the weekend, on March 28, the first of three Main Event flights takes place. The €1,100 buy-in Irish Open Main Event has a whopping €1 million guaranteed prize pool, but that figure will be obliterated if last year’s tournament is anything to go by.
Pablo Brito Silva came out on top in last year’s Irish Open Main Event. He outlasted 2,944 opponents on his way to securing the €462,099 top prize, along with the title of Irish Open Main Event champion.
Those of you wishing to play in the Irish Open Main Event but who do not have €1,100 to spend on entering should check out our Main Event satellites. They start from €0.01 and eventually feed into the €109 Main Event 1A Mega Satellite at 15:30 on March 28. The Mega Satellite has an incredible 100x seats, each worth €1,100, guaranteed. It could be your best shot into this event.
