DUBLIN, Ireland -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Paddy Power Poker today launches the details of its Student Masters 2013 and highlights a few changes to the popular festival.
The €100 + €10 buy-in, no-limit hold’em freezeout will play out over one weekend; starting in the Ballsbridge Hotel in Dublin, just minutes from Dublin’s City Centre and right next door to the Aviva Stadium, and moving to the Jackpot Casino for the final day of play.
Action kicks off at 2 p.m. on Saturday, March 2, 2013 and runs until the bubble bursts, with a cut-off time of 2 a.m. The second day begins on Sunday, March 3 at 2 p.m. at the Jackpot Casino.
Paddy Power is once again adding an Irish Open entry to the prize pool, which means the winner of the live student poker championship will get to represent their fellow students in the oldest no-limit hold’em poker event in Europe next Easter.
