One of the most eagerly anticipated live tournaments of the year is the Irish Winter Festival; and with an estimate prize pool of €600,000 it's easy to see why. You could be heading to Dublin armed with an Irish Winter Festival package worth €1,800 thanks to William Hill.
The 2012 Irish Winter Festival takes place at the historic Burlington Hotel in Dublin from Oct. 27 through 29 and features a €1,125 No-Limit Hold'em Main Event that should attract some of the biggest names in the business.
Last year's event attracted a field of 395 players to the Emerald Isle and after three days of intense poker action and plenty of Guinness drinking, John Keown emerged victorious, taking home €100,000.
This year, PokerNews could be writing about you if you go all the way and take down the 2012 Irish Winter Festival, something that William Hill is helping to make reality.
