Paddy Power running Irish Open Cheap Seats Satellites
By RTR Dennis
Seeing as the Irish Poker Open commonly offers a prize pool worth €1.5 million or more, it’s not a cheap tournament to enter…unless you play at Paddy Power that is! Right now Paddy Power Poker are running ‘Irish Open Cheap Seats’ satellites from now until late March of 2013. That said, here’s a closer look at how to win €2,250 Irish Open seats through these events.
Spend a Little, Win Big!
Paddy Power are currently running daily feeder tournaments that lead to the weekly Cheap Seats Grand Final. These daily feeders take place at 19:30 and 21:30 GMT, and the buy-in is just €4 + €0.40. One Grand Final seat will be given out for every €150 in the prize pool.
As for the Cheap Seats Final, this happens every Wednesday at 20:30 GMT. At least one €2,000 + €250 Irish Open Main Event seat will be given away in each Final, and there could be more depending upon the number of players. Note that players cannot buy directly into this event because they must win a Final seat through the daily feeder tourneys.
As if winning an Irish Open seat isn’t enough of a prize, Paddy Power are also going to award a €60,000 prize package to one lucky player. Below you can see the qualifications for winning this €60k package deal:
- Win an Irish Open seat through the Cheap Seats tournaments.
- Outlast the other eight seat winners in the Irish Open Main Event.
- Collect a €60,000 prize package.
The person who wins this prize will receive a 2013 WSOP Main Event seat, 2014 Irish Open seat and €50,000 in cash. And what’s amazing to think about is how somebody’s going to win all of this through a simple €4 + €0.40 Cheap Seats tournament! All you need to do to get started is sign up for Paddy Power Poker rakeback, which will also net you a 200% up to $2,000 bonus.
