The Ladbrokes Irish Poker Festival Returns To Killarney
Thursday, 10. March 2011

The fourth annual running of the Ladbrokes Irish Poker Festival is almost upon us and Ladbrokes Poker has amazing prize packages up for grabs. The festival will be returning to the Irish National Events Centre in Killarney from September 29th through October 2nd.

Last year’s Ladbrokes Irish Poker Festival saw 633 players battling it out just in the Main Event and there was plenty of action in the Side Events as well. Previous runnings of the festival saw a very eclectic group of participants; including, lots of online players, locals and a fairly significant group of Nordic and international players. A Swedish player, Lars Törngren, one last year’s Main Event and walked away with a nice payday of €75,000. This year’s Main Event will once again have a buy in of €550 and a guaranteed prizepool of €300,000.

Members of Ladbrokes Poker will have the opportunity to win one of two different prize packages: a €550 Main Seat prize package and a €1,000 Killarney 2011 prize package. Players that win a €550 Main Seat package only receive a ticket to the Main Event.
