Paddy Power Poker Adds Extra Irish Open 2013 Prize Packages

Paddy Power Poker players who are eager to take part in next spring's Irish Open 2013 tournament are being given more chances to win their way into the series.

Until now Paddy Power Poker has been offering up three Irish Open 2013 prize packages each week. A great fan reception has led the online poker network to increase the excitement surrounding the satellites, though, and now four packages will be handed out every Sunday evening. These prize packages consist of transportation money (worth €525), a five night stay at Dublin's Burlington Hotel (a €395 value) and, of course, a seat at the Irish Open's main event. Players can buy into the satellites directly for €176. This buy-in also includes access to the Sole Survivor promotion running alongside the qualifiers, an event that provides competitors who hold out the longest in each night's satellite with main event seats for the Irish Open 2014 and World Series of Poker 2013 as well as €50,000 in cash.

Paddy Power Poker explained that increasing the scale of its Irish Open 2013 satellites was due to "the appetite players have to take part" in the series — something attributed to this year's reduced buy-in costs and the addition of the Sole Survivor promo. The Irish Open is one of Europe's longest running tournament series and is scheduled to take place at Dublin, Ireland's Burlington Hotel from 29th March through until 1st April, 2013.
