PaddyPowerPoker.com has announced its Christmas present to poker players, with the return of the “Christmas Cracker” in Dublin’s Sporting Emporium on December 9.
With €5,000 added to the prize pool and the registration fee (€50) paid by the website, PaddyPowerPoker.com says this €500 freezeout represents the best value tournament in Ireland this holiday season, with an estimated prize pool of €65,000.
Players can buy directly into the event by contacting the Sporting Emporium. Registration opens at noon on December 9 and the tournament begins at 14:00. Alternatively, players can qualify through satellites at PaddyPowerPoker.com. One takes place tomorrow, December 1, at 23:00 ($30 re-buy plus reg. $1.50) whilst the other is scheduled for December 6 at 23:00 ($30 re-buy plus reg. $1.50).
Players can also qualify via a live satellite at the Sporting Emporium on December 5.
Last year the event attracted Irish pros including Andy Black, Liam Flood, Padraig Parkinson, Scott Gray and Rory Liffey as well as celebrities Ken Doherty and comedian Tommy Tiernan. The tournament was won by local heroes Harold Huberman and Goran Tomic who took home €13,000 each.
