In a Spring tradition that was started almost 30 years ago, a team from what is now part of the Cake Network jumped the pond and headed to Dublin, Ireland to compete against the best and brightest of the Irish poker players. And now it’s time to see if you have what it takes to join Team Cake in the annual battle at the 2011 Irish Open.
Located within walking distance of downtown Dublin, the 2011 Irish Open will be held at The Burlington Hotel from April 22nd to April 25th, 2011. Featuring a €3,500 buy-in for main event, the Open will include players from all over the world. The prize pool has yet to be disclosed, but if last year was any indication, we’re looking at well over €2,200,000 in prizes. Most players will have paid handsomely for their spot, you can go for as little as $1.10 through Cake Poker’s satellite tournaments.
Starting on January 3, 2011, Cake Poker has been running daily satellites with fees as low as $1.10! Go to Cake’s Events tab in the tournament lobby to register. Don’t wait–the last day to claim a seat is Sunday, March 27th.
Players that win will be awarded a $7,000 prize package which includes all tournament entry fees, a 5-night stay, $1,500 in travel cash, and Irish Open gear.
