There are loads of small live poker tournaments taking place around the world but very of them get a lot of attention.
The Action Poker Tour Ireland is getting a lot of attention because it has the backing of the World Poker Tour (WPT) Global which has decided to sponsor the inaugural edition of the tournament.
Action Poker Tour Ireland Runs March 24-25
The Action Poker Tour Ireland will take place at the City North Hotel in Gormanston, County Meath, Ireland. The Action Poker Tour Ireland Main Event will run from March 24-25 and has a €300 buy-in.
Poker players who would like to take part in the Main Event but don’t have the bankroll for the buy-in, can take advantage of the satellite events running on WPT Global. These satellite events can be found in the lobby and will run till March 19.
Players will find a $22 Day 1 Qualifier satellite and the top 15 percent of the players taking part will get moved on to a no direct buy-in finale which runs on March 19. There are a minimum of 2 x €300 Main Event seats up for grabs. If the $22 buy-in is also a bit too steep, then players can take advantage of the $4.40 buy-in feeders.
Those players that do not want to go through the process of feeder satellites or qualifying via the top 15 percent, can take part in the $33 buy-in direct qualifier. Do check out the WPT Global lobby to find out more information on these satellite events and side events taking place around the UK.
