Ireland's Best Loved Live Poker Tournament Is Back - And You Can Win A Seat At Titan Poker!
The Irish Open takes place in the historic city of Dublin, with the 2015 main event kicking off on the 3rd April at the high-spec Hilton Hotel. This has fast become one of the most popular events on the world tournament circuit, attracting a healthy field of both pros (including the stars!) and amateur players - who compete for huge prize pools. The good news is that you can win a seat via Titan Poker's 3-stage Irish Open Satellites, meaning poker fans with both big and small bankrolls get a shot at enjoying this great experience... and maybe even coming away with some life-changing prize money!
As with all of my satellite information articles I start off with the practical details and the package available - before going into the types of satellite qualifiers available. SNG Planet readers can claim an extra $20 in cash on top of your 200% matched deposit bonus at Titan - I will explain this at the end of the article.
Irish Open Satellite Qualifiers – Practical And Package Details
Here are the details:
When? April 3rd to 6th 2015
Where? Hilton Hotel in the center of Dublin, Ireland.
How Much? Entry is €3200+€300
Instead of just the entry fee - Titan Poker are offering their players a prize package which includes flights, accomodation and expenses in addition to the €3500 you need to compete in the main event itself. This is worth a total of €4500 and is broken down as follows:
- €3500 for entry into the main event.
- €400 for the Hotel stay
- €30 for handling fees (not exactly sure why this is included in the list to be honest!)
- $570 for flights and spending.
For me this is a win / win... if you run deep in the tournament then you could be flying home with a serious amount of prize money! If you happen to bust early then you have a trip to the historic city of Dublin and can enjoy the sites and a couple of pints of guiness.
Irish Open 2015 - Satellite Qualfier Schedule At Titan Poker
For those not familiar with the setup of satellite qualifiers at Titan, these are broken down into 3 stages. Your aim is to get to the Stage 1 events (super-satellites) which give away the actual packages, with the stage 2 and 3 qualifiers feeding into these. You can buy-in at any stage, and choose from SNGs, rebuy tournaments or freezeout tournaments as you go through. Satellites start at as little as 31 cents, so everyone has the chance to be included!
Super-Satellites are the games where the packages are awarded. These are a €200 freezeout (single buy-in), and a €75 rebuy. There are no 'buy-in only' alternatives this time around. What you can do is work your way through the stages to end up in the supersatellites. If you have not played at Titan before, then you'll be happy to know that most of the field is made up of recreational and amateur players - the games are very soft.
