Euro 2 Million Prize Pool Offered in Poker Event
29th of August 2014
Poker prizes continue to grow both on- and off-line, and a good example of it is the $12 million first-place finishing prize for the World Series of Poker this year - but the European circuit is not that left behind as the 6th Irish Poker Open will have a guaranteed prize pool of at least €2 million. So says Paddy Power, the sponsor of the tournament. This will make the Irish Poker Open one of Europe's largest tournaments as crowds from around the globe will gather to compete for the lion's share of the prize. It is not a freeroll, however, and there will be a €3,300 buy in as well as a €200 registration fee - that is what participants will have to pay, unless they can win their way in through satellite qualifiers at PaddyPowerPoker.com.
