With a tradition and history second only to the World Series of Poker, the Irish Open boasts being the longest running No Limit Texas Hold’em tournament in Europe and you can qualify for the tournament online now.
Main Satellites run at William Hill Poker on Sundays at 8pm - buy in is €200 + €15 freezeout.
Past winners have included English poker pro Neil Channing, who took home the top prize of €801,400 in 2008, and home-grown hero Marty Smyth, who defeated Roland de Wolfe in an epic heads up battle to claim €650,000 and the 2007 title.
More recently the 2009 Irish Open Main Event was won by Swedish professional Christer Johansson, and in 2010 20 year old Englishman James Mitchell took the honours, with both champions winning over €600,000. In 2011 the title returned to Ireland, with youngster Niall Smyth taking the trophy and €550,000 to boot.
You could be experiencing this electric atmosphere first hand by qualifying through Super Satellites, taking place from now, right through to 25th March 2012.
