Paddy Power Poker Releases Full Schedule for the 2013 Irish Winter Festival

                It won't be long before Paddy Power Poker's Irish Winter Festival (IWF) returns. Fortunately, the online poker network has just released a final version of the schedule for the rapidly approaching event that provides plenty of information on what players and spectators can expect.
                The 2013 IWF sports a line up of seven events and is filled with the level of variety that has come to define the series. Aside from a lucrative main event, a special two-day mini event (with a €225 buy-in) and even a few rounds of beer pong, probably the most exciting — and strange — feature of this year's IWF is a brand new, €55 buy-in tournament called Crazy Pineapple. Crazy Pineapple is a poker variant that increases the excitement of what is otherwise a fairly typical event by giving every competitor three hole cards to play. After the flop one of these cards must be discarded. These extra factors introduce a new level of strategy to the game and should lead to some real surprises as its public premier plays out in a tournament setting.
                A statement from Paddy Power Poker called the IWF the "one event [the company] looks forward to every year" due to the fact that "there is always something a bit whacky to get involved in." The 2013 Irish Winter Festival will take place at Dublin, Ireland's Burlington Hotel from Friday, 25th October to Monday, 28th October, 2013. The series will conclude with a €1,125 buy-in no limit hold'em main event.
