There is more going on behind the scenes for the Euro 3 million Irish Open poker event, which is scheduled for 2008, then meets the eye. PaddyPowerPoker is a sponsor site of the Irish Open and offers opportunities to qualify for the Open. But this year, if the winner of the 2008 Irish Open had qualified for the game on PaddyPowerPoker, he or she will win the Ã¢â‚¬Å“golden ticketÃ¢â‚¬Â of poker, which is a free entry into EuropeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s premier poker tournament for the next 5 years.
And on top of all of that, the one player who is the highest finishing PaddyPowerPoker qualifier, even if that person did not win first place, will win free entry into the 2009 Irish Open.
Online players have always stood their own when it came to the events. Thomas Finneran, and online player from Galway, beat out over 70 others and ended up in 7th place in the 2007 event. And the year before that, Sligo man Pat OÃ¢â‚¬â„¢Callaghan, another big online name, finished with 14th place.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Thomas and Pat have blazed a trail and shown that our online players can compete with the very best in the world,Ã¢â‚¬Â a spokesman said. Ã¢â‚¬Å“My money is most definitely on one of our guys taking home the Terry Rogers trophy this year. As Paddy First we will look forward to welcoming him or her back for the next five years.Ã¢â‚¬Â
It will be March 19th Ã¢â‚¬â€œ 24th that the 2008 Irish Open will take place and all the action will be at the Citywest Hotel in Dublin.
