DUBLIN, Ireland -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Paddy Power Poker is celebrating the success of its first Irish Open 2013 satellite last Sunday by increasing the guaranteed packages from three to four.
Each package in the €160 + €16 buy in qualifier, taking place every Sunday at 8 p.m., consists of a €2,250 buy in to the Irish Open main event, €525 for flights and spending and €395 for five nights accommodation at the Burlington Hotel.
The Irish Open returns to the Burlington hotel from March 29 to April 1, 2013, with a reduced buy in of €2,000 + €250 (VAT inclusive).
Any players who buy into the Irish Open via the holding tank in the paddypowerpoker.com client will receive the €50 value added tax (VAT) fee back into their online poker account in tokens after the Irish Open 2013.
Any player who satellites into the Irish Open main event at paddypowerpoker.com can take part in Sole Survivor, which sees the player lasting longest in the event walking away with €50,000 in cash, a World Series of Poker 2013 Main Event buy in and Irish Open 2014 buy in.
Paddy Power, spokesman for Paddy Power Poker, said, “The response to our first satellite for the Irish Open was overwhelming and really showed the appetite players have to take part.
“The reduced buy in this year looks like it’s really been a shot in the arm and we look forward to dishing out lots of guaranteed packages, giving a little something back to players who buy in via the holding tank at Paddy Power Poker, and ensuring the Sole Survivor is one of the biggest and best ever.”
