PokerTube, the world’s greatest resource for poker-related videos, has teamed with Paddy Power to form the PokerTube Irish Open Tourney League and is offering exclusive satellite tournaments to win seats to the Irish Open 2014.
Players who sign up at Paddy Power through PokerTube will receive a free $4.40 Irish Open Satellite ticket that can lead to winning a free seat to the Irish Open in Dublin on April 18-21. But the rewards don’t stop there, as a $2,000 deposit bonus, up to 50% VIP cashback, $10 free, and additional goodies compliments of PokerTube are available to new players.
The Paddy Power Irish Open is the oldest and longest running NLHE poker tournament held in Europe, first appearing in 1981. On the world stage, the Irish Open comes in second in longevity only to the World Series of Poker.
Last year’s prize pool at the Irish Open was over €1,000,000 and organisers are anticipating €1 million to be eclipsed again in 2014. Held at the Double Tree by Hilton Hotel (formerly The Burlington Hotel) on Burlington Road in Dublin, Ireland, the buy-in is set at €2,000 + €250 and features a starting stack of 30,000 and 60-minute blind levels.
The PokerTube Irish Open Tournament Series Super Satellites that are exclusive to PokerTube players begin today and run every Tuesday for the next seven weeks through April 1. The €200 Super Sat + €30 Sat Added events begin each week at 20:00 GMT.
