The Irish Poker Masters KO festival heads to partypoker from November 4 through November 22 and everything points towards it being an epic series. Eighteen number progressive knockout events take place at the partypoker virtual felt. tournament with buy-ins ranging from €44 right up to €2,100.
20:05 GMT on November 4 is when you want to set your alarms because that is when the first Irish Poker Masters KO event shuffles up and deals. Costing €320 to enter and boasting of a €250,000 guaranteed prize pool, the Irish Poker Masters KO #01 Opener features eight Day 1s up until and including November 8. Each Day 1 plays until only 15% of the field remains, which means making it through to Day 2 guarantees you at least a min-cash.
Look down the schedule and you find several Pot-Limit Omaha (PLO) and Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo (PLO8) events. The Big 4 PLO8 is the first non-hold’em event; it also kicks off on November 4 at 20:05 GMT.
Everyone is well-catered for thanks to a wide selection of buy-in levels, but a handful of high-stakes tournaments have us tingling with anticipation.
The JP Masters runs from November 8 through November 15, and comes with a €530 buy-in and a juicy €300,000 guaranteed prize pool.
Then there is the €530 buy-in €40,000 guaranteed PLO8 High Roller on November 14, and the €2,100 No-Limit Hold’em High Roller on November 18. The latter will award not a cent less than €100,000.
PLO players have their own high roller event on November 21. It commands a €1,050 buy-in and comes with at least €75,000 in the pot.
However, it is the €1 million guaranteed Irish Poker Masters KO Main Event that has us all hot under the collar. There are four Day 1s, including a turbo-structured flight, each weighing in at €1,100. The structure is nothing short of amazing, with a 100,000 starting stack, and 20-minute levels starting at 500/1,000/100a. Only one re-enter is permitted until the end of the 12th level when the blinds are still only 2,000/4,000/500a! It is a tournament designed to allow the cream to rise to the top.
