Have you set yourself any New Year’s resolutions? Do they involve having a stellar year at the online poker tables and bagging plenty of cash? If so, you could do much worse than starting 2021 by playing in the Irish Open Winter Festival Main Event.
The Irish Open Winter Festival Main Event takes place at both Paddy Power Poker and Betfair Poker from January 1 through January 3. Day 1A of this €100 buy-in €50,000 guaranteed Main Event shuffles up and deals at 7:00 p.m. GMT on January 1.
You receive a generous helping of 20,000 chips for your €100 investment. Late registration ends after the completion of the 12th level, or two hours 24 minutes to be precise. Blinds increase every 12 minutes and start as low as 25/50/5a, giving you plenty of room to manoeuvre.
The aim of each of the three Day 1s (Day 1B is at 7:00 p.m. GMT on January 2 and Day 1C at 3:00 p.m. GMT on January 3) is to make it through to the end of the 25th level. Do this and you’ll progress to Day 2 at 7:00 p.m. GMT on January 3.
Be aware the blinds on Day 1C increase every five-minutes to ensure the tournament finishes in time for Day 2 on the same day
