Win Your 2013 Irish Winter Festival Seat through Paddy Power's Cheap Seats
By RTR Dennis
There's nothing like playing for a huge poker tournament prize pool in a great city like Dublin. And the 2013 Irish Winter Festival offers this fantastic opportunity since last year's Dublin-based Main Event paid out €384,850 ($ 499,364). Unfortunately, this tourney is also fairly expensive to enter since the buy-in is €1,125.
But you can win an Irish Winter Festival seat for much less than this by playing in Paddy Power Poker's Cheap Seats. As the name implies, these satellites are very cheap since they cost just €4 to enter. Assuming you win a Cheap Seats satellite, you'll automatically qualify for a Cheap Seats Final, where a €1,125 IWF seat is the prize. This is definitely an attractive deal, so let's go over the details for both the Cheap Seats satellites and Cheap Seats Finals.
€4 + €0.40 NLHE Rebuy - Runs daily at 5:30pm, 7:30pm, 9:30pm and 10:30pm (server time).
Cheap Seats Final
You must qualify to play in a Cheap Seats Final and there is no direct buy-in. These tournaments run every Wednesday night at 8:30pm, and one €1,125 IWF Main Event seat is given away in each Cheap Seats Final.
Irish Winter Festival Information
The 2013 Irish Winter Festival Main Event will run at the luxurious Burlington Hotel in Dublin from October 25th-28th. There's no guarantee on the Main Event, but last year's tournament featured nearly €385k ($499k) in prize money. Germany's Tim Hartmann topped the 385-player field to capture a very large €100,000 ($129,756) payout.
Don't miss your chance to compete for a huge prize like the one Hartmann collected last year. Play in Paddy Power's €4 Cheap Seats and win your IWF seat for next to nothing!
