PKR Returns To Partner WPT National Dublin
Online poker site PKR.com have announced that they will again be joining forces with the World Poker Tour to sponsor the WPT National Series event in Dublin for the second year running.
The event will take place from 3-6 January at the Citywest Hotel and will feature a €1,200 + €120 NLHE event with optional re-entry as well as a host of events and the Irish Poker Championship.
As sponsors of the event, PKR.com will naturally be running online satellites to WPT Dublin and are expecting to take a large number of qualifiers over with them to the tournament this year as well.
Satellites for WPT Dublin start from as little as $2 and eventually award Dublin packages worth $3,000, which include entry into the main event, four nights accommodation at the Citywest Hotel, $300 in travel expenses, invites to PKR’s VIP events and access to their exclusive Players Lounge.
Last January a €2,500 buy-in edition of the event was won by Dave Shallow for €220,000, but despite the reduced entry fee this year, WPT’s desire to increase the popularity of their National Series will ensure that a comparable prize will definitely be on offer for the tournament’s eventual winner.
