partypoker MILLIONS Irish Festival: A €1,000,000 GTD European Poker Festival
The Euro poker community has been treated to some incredible series lately, and the trend continues as partypoker brings its renowned MILLIONS series to the Emerald Isle. The partypoker MILLIONS Irish Festival is set to be a week-long festival of poker, offering a plethora of events and a guaranteed prize pool that will have players heading to the incredible city of Dublin from all corners. Here's everything you need to know about this must-attend poker festival.
When and Where is This MILLIONS Festival?
The festival is scheduled to take place from October 31st to November 5th at the luxurious Intercontinental Hotel in Dublin. This five-star venue epitomizes traditional luxury and is completed with old-school glamour, along with a first-class spa, wellness facilities, and a heated pool. The poker venue is top-of-the-range, with a mixture of classy and modern poker vibes during some fantastic tournament and cash game offerings.
The pinnacle of the festival is undoubtedly the Main Event, boasting a hefty €3,000 buy-in and a guaranteed prize pool of €1,000,000. A staggering 70% of this amount is dedicated to the Main Event alone. Scheduled from November 1st to 5th, this tournament is expected to attract a large field of both professional and amateur players. If you're looking for inspiration, look no further than Mario Trattou, who recently won the partypoker MILLIONS Malta Main Event for €93,000.
While the Main Event will be the focal point, the festival is far from a one-event pony. Pot Limit Omaha enthusiasts should mark November 2nd on their calendars for the €2,500 Omaha Championship.
For those who enjoy the thrill of knockout tournaments, the festival kicks off with a €400 Mystery Bounty event. The "mystery aspect" of this tournament has been gaining traction in both online and live poker, adding an extra layer of excitement to the game. All it takes is knocking out one player and pulling that top prize envelope to potentially take more than 1st place prize money!
For players on a budget, the €550 Grand Prix from November 3rd to 5th offers a more affordable buy-in with a €100,000 guaranteed prize pool. This event is expected to attract a large number of entries and is a must-play for anyone attending the festival.
Good news for those who haven't secured their spot yet: partypoker is running satellites starting from as low as $0.01. The packages up for grabs are valued at €5,000, including the €3,000 Main Event buy-in, a five-night stay at the Intercontinental Hotel, and €500 in spending money. You can find these satellites in the partypoker lobby!
Dublin is a vibrant and modern city that is quickly becoming a burgeoning hub for poker. The Intercontinental Dublin, the venue for the festival, offers more than just a place to play cards.
