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.

ECPokerTour Event Brings Poker Extravaganza to the Austrian Alps

Posted by Gambling News | Poker News | Tuesday 17 February 2009 4:05 pm

The ECPokerTour Salzburg 2009, in its unique Austrian Alpine setting, takes place between between April 3rd-5th 2009 and offers players unrivalled luxury and a shot at poker glory.

The hills will be alive with the sound of shuffling chips in April when the ECPokerTour Salzburg, descends upon the picturesque Saalbach-Hinterglemm valley in Austria for three days of poker, fun and luxury.

Fans of live tournament poker are once again in for a treat as players from all walks of life will gather at the new five-star Alpine Palace Card Casino to compete for the coveted ECPokerTour title. Players from Europe, Scandinavia, Asia and Canada have already secured their seats, and this is largely due to the support from sponsors Titan Poker, Europe’s leading online poker room, where players have regular opportunities to win sensational $4000, all-expenses-paid, prize packages to the tournament.

The Salzburg meet is only the second in a series already regarded by many as the most prestigious new tournament series on the European poker circuit, and with a prize pool equally as stunning as the mountain views – the competition this time around is sure to be fierce. The ECPokerTour opened at the lavish Casino Gran in Madrid in May 2008 to critical acclaim. Players reveled in the atmosphere and culture whilst battling it out for the 40,000 Euro Grand Prize in the Spanish capital. The top prize and the title were eventually won by young Canadian player Greg Metzak in a highly charged finish to the landmark event.

Players can expect more of the same but on a grander scale as they prepare for Salzburg. Outdoor pursuits and extreme sports in the snow will take a back seat as the eyes of the poker world stay fixed on the felt for the duration of the main event.

To date, 42 of the coveted prize packages have been won by online poker enthusiasts. One delighted winner from Norway was thankful to sponsors Titan Poker “for giving me the opportunity to travel to Salzburg for this exciting event. The qualifier was nerve-racking at the end but I kept my cool and made it through. This will be my first live tournament and I will do my very best.”

Titan Poker is offering players three chances a week to win luxury ECPokerTour Salzburg prize packages with its ECPokerTour Salzburg Super Satellites, staged every Sunday, Wednesday and Friday until March 25th 2009. Players can qualify with direct buy-ins starting at $40+$4, or win super seats at any of Titan Poker’s qualifying Sit’N’ Go and satellite tournaments for as little as $0.55+$0.05.
