The MPN Poker Tour (MPNPT) today announces its first stop in Dublin in collaboration with Gaming Association, a coalition of Irish poker promoters. The festival will run from September 2nd – 6th 2015, and its headline event, the MPNPT Irish Poker Cup, will feature a guaranteed prize pool of €250,000!
Held at Bewley’s Hotel, the festival consists of 15 events in total. Highlights include:
- 2nd September – €500 MPNPT Irish Poker Cup [Multi-day Event] – €250,000 Guaranteed
- 2nd September – €225 Irish Omaha Cup [Multi-day Event, Triple Chance] – €10,000 Guaranteed
- 5th September – €150 Dublin Poker Cup [Multi-day Event]
- 6th September – €120 Monster Stack – €10,000 Guaranteed
Speaking for Gaming Association, Fintan Gavin commented: "It’s my privilege to assist in the promotion of the most exciting poker festival to hit this region in years."
Online satellites to the Dublin Main Event will kick off in late May, after the MPNPT’s biggest festival in Tbilisi, Georgia gets underway. Every €1,500 package includes entry to the MPNPT Irish Poker Cup and €120 Monster Stack event, plus accommodation for four nights, a welcome drinks party and money towards travel and expenses.
"As a former Dublin resident, I know that Irish players love the game just as much as we do, and I’m excited to see the MPN Poker Tour visit the capital for the first time," said Alex Scott, Head of Poker at Microgaming. “With a prize pool as big as the spike, more action than a night in Coppers, and craic as mighty as the beer is pricey, what more could you ask for in a weekend away?"
The MPN Poker Tour was founded in May 2014, and has grown from a small festival in London to a major international poker series in just one year.
