Looking for a seat in the 2008 Irish Poker Open? Betfair Poker has you covered.

The renowned online poker room and sports betting site is currently hosting qualifiers for the Irish Open with 10 guaranteed VIP packages worth almost €6k each.

The impressive packages include the €4,500 buy-in to the 2008 Irish Poker Open, spending money to cover flights, accommodation and expenses and a VIP trip to the 2008 Irish Grand National, the country's premier steeplechase event. Entry into Betfair Poker's exclusive WSOPE freeroll, with one seat guaranteed to the WSOPE Main Event 2008, is also included.

Last year Betfair's newly signed pro Sorel Mizzi made it all the way to fourth place in the prestigious Irish tournament. Mizzi, or Imper1um as he's known online, made €400,000 in a four-way chop and is looking forward to representing Betfair this year.

Betfair Poker is one of the world's fastest-growing online poker rooms. It is an independent site and not a part of any poker networks. It is owned and operated by the world's largest sports exchange.

Betfair was the headline sponsor of the inaugural World Series of Poker Europe where Annette Obrestad was crowned queen and became the youngest WSOP bracelet in history. Obrestad is a key part of the Betfair team which seems to be growing by the day, as evidenced by Mizzi's recent signing.
