The 2012 Irish Winter Festival takes place at the historic Burlington Hotel in Dublin from Oct. 27 to 29 and features a €1,125 No-Limit Hold'em Main Event that should attract some of the best poker players in the business. You could find yourself headed to Dublin armed with an Irish Winter Festival package worth €1,800 thanks to William Hill.
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 — John Keown emerged victorious, taking home the €100,000 winner's prize.
This year's champion could be you if you go all the way and take down the 2012 Irish Winter Festival, something that William Hill is helping to make reality. William Hill is hosting a plethora of satellite tournaments to the 2012 Irish Winter Festival that award an amazing all-inclusive package.
Each package consists of:
- €1,000+€125 Irish Winter Festival Buy-in
- €316 for four nights accommodation and breakfast at the Burlington Hotel
- €329 for flights and spending money
- €30 handling fees
The satellites to these all-inclusive packages run every Sunday at 19:00 BST and cost just €130+€10 to enter. Each of these satellites guarantees at least two all-inclusive Irish Winter Festival, with an additional package added into the mix for every €1,800 in the prize pool.
William Hill is also hosting a number of "ticket-only" satellites too, for those of you who do not need or want hotel and travel costs covering; perfect for those of you who are already based in Ireland! These satellites run on Mondays at 19:00 BST (€20+€2 R/A) and Thursdays at 19:00 BST (€80+€8 freezeout) and each award one seat per €1,125 in the prize pool.
Should you find the buy-ins for these satellites too expensive for your bankroll, do not worry because there are plenty of feeder tournaments running on William Hill. A quick search in the William Hill Poker lobby under the "Land Based" tab will reveal a whole host of sub-satellites that feed into these weekly finals. There is no excuse for not trying to win your way to one of the best live poker events of the year.
