Irish Poker Championship tour kicks off

With its first event getting under way last night, the Party Poker Irish Poker Championship Tour has kicked off at Eglinton Card Room and Casino, its first stop of eight across the island.

"The 2008 Irish Poker Championship [held earlier this year] was seen as a big success and still attracted 298 runners, despite the fact that Ireland was engulfed in a snowstorm at the time that limited the options of many to get to Galway," said a Steve Wong, Neil Channing, Tony Cascarino and Rory Liffey, all of whom are likely to be involved with the 2009 event.
