Irish Poker Masters
Prize Pool: €1Million
Date: September 6th, 2018
In the quaint, quiet, western town of Killarney, things are about to be seriously shaken up with the arrival of the Irish Poker Masters in September.
Over the course of four days, this tournament will separate the wheat from the chaff and decide who will compete in the final day’s main event, that offers a grand total prize fund of €1Million.
With a buy-in of just €1,150, this tournament could see you make a stark improvement on your investment if you manage to go all the way!
However, this is not an all-or-nothing event, and over the course of the tournament, which will run until the 9th, you will have the opportunity to compete in 6 other smaller events, including a €550 Pot-Limit Omaha event & a €220 Ladies’ Championship.
The Irish Poker Masters promises to be a great event for all players of all creeds.
Prize Pool: £8.5 Million
Date: September 29th, 2018
A bigger tournament perfect for players who considered themselves high-rollers is the Millions UK Tournament, which is also kicking off next month.
Starting on the 29th September and running over the first week of October, this tournament’s main event has a whopping £5 Million up for grabs.
The Day 1 of the event will occur online on the September 30th, and those who are successful will then be invited down to the Dusk Till Dawn venue in Nottingham for three days of competing for that final prize money.
This is not one for the faint-hearted though, as the buy-in for the main event will cost you over £5000, so you need to be ready to go big or go home.
If £5000 sounds a bit rich for your blood, then don’t worry, as this event has four other smaller events running alongside the main one, with a prize pool £8.5 million and with buy-ins starting from just £550. These events include a £25,500 Super High Roller Event, with a huge £1M prize pool, which is certainly not to be missed.
If you fancy giving it a go, satellites are already up and running, so you can enter yourself into the tournament right now at Partypoker if you think you’ve got what it takes.
As well as these huge events happening, there are, of course, a series of other smaller online events happening at various online casinos across the web.
Although they won’t have such large sums up for grabs or that real-life, living-breathing atmosphere, they are still a great bit of fun and can see you hone your skills and win some cash!
We are looking forward to these two tournaments, as well as loads more great poker happening in 2019, so stay tuned for loads more poker tournaments’ info over the next few months!Offer valid as of date published. T&Cs apply.
