The Irish Poker Open returns to live setting with PartyPoker as sponsor

For the first time since 2019, the Party Poker-sponsored Irish Poker Open will return to a live setting, with Dublin’s Citywest Hotel and Resort serving as host from Monday, April 11, to Monday, April 18, 2022.

The tournament will allow players to qualify online, will comprise 42 tournaments, including a €5,000 and €2,000 high roller.

The Irish Poker Open

The main event will begin on Wednesday, April 13, with a €1,150 buy-in. Three consecutive days of starting flights will precede day two on Saturday, April 16, and day three on Sunday, April 17. The final table will take place on the festival’s final day. However, purchasing a ticket at the venue is not the only way for players to qualify for the main event; they can also earn their place by participating in free online satellites on partypoker, with ten guaranteed seats available through weekly Sunday finals.

Daily controls on partypoker lead to the €4.40 phase one, followed by the €22 phase two, and finally the weekly Sunday final, which may also be bought into directly. Throughout the festival, satellites will be held at the location.

Pavel Veksler won last year’s Irish Poker Open main event, taking home the top prize of €266,000. Weijie Zheng took home €300,000 as of the last live main event champion in 2019.

This year, there will also be a Mini Irish Open, which will take place over the final two days of the event and will cost €250 to enter.

Executive Notes

The Irish Poker Open’s organizers, Paul O’Reilly and JP McCann noted in a statement that they have always expressed how exciting it is to start the Irish Poker Open each year. However, the introduction of the Irish Poker Open 2022 is particularly significant in light of the particularly trying times people have endured over the last two years.

Dan Rose, partypoker’s head of live events, expressed his excitement at the prospect of reuniting with the Irish Poker Open following a lengthy absence from the felt in Dublin. It’s an honor to be able to qualify players for such an enjoyable and well-managed festival.
