Return To Ireland With The World Poker Tour And PartyPoker
Last year the World Poker Tour dropped anchor in the Dublin, Ireland, for the first time in its history and it was so well received that the WPT has decided to grace the Emerald Isle with its presence once again.
From Jan. 3 through 6, the WPT will return to Ireland where it will host one of its popular National Series main events. The highlight of the festival is without a doubt the $1,750 buy-in main event, a tournament that you could be playing in for free!
Each day until Dec. 16 there will be a whole host of qualifying tournaments that feed into the weekly (runs on Sundays at 14:50 ET) $150+$12 WPT National Ireland Satellite where one $3,000 package is guaranteed. Each package consists of:
- $1,750 WPT National Series Ireland Main Event buy-in
- $650 spending money
- Three nights accommodation
Last year, Dave Shallow left Dublin with a World Poker Tour title and €222,280 in prize money after besting a 338-strong field; he defeated Charles Chattha heads-up.
Ring in 2013 by taking down WPT Ireland! It would be the perfect start to the new year!
Tony G Takes On Manchester United!
Tony G is not the kind of man or poker player that turns down a challenge so when his sponsor decided to run the PartyPoker.com Challenge for MUTV (Manchester United TV) he jumped at the chance to showcase his poker skills against some of the British football giants' best players.
Tony G describes the former Manchester United and England striker Teddy Sheringham as nitty, but which of the current crop of football stars does he think has what it takes to become a star in the poker sense of the word? Find out in his exclusive blog.

$30,000 Worth Of Freeroll Prizes and $5,000 In Cash Up For Grabs With The Accelerator
Since Nov. 1 The Accelerator has been awarding bags full of prizes to PartyPoker customers, but this fantastic promotion has to come to an end on Nov. 30, so make sure you don't miss out. Some of the amazing prizes on offer include freeroll entries where you could win an iPad or a share of $15,000 plus instant cash prizes ranging from $5 and increasing to a bankroll-boosting $1,725!
The graphic below gives you a quick rundown of the prizes that are available in The Accelerator promotion.
This promotion extra special because you are allowed to keep each one of the prizes you earn along the way, not just the highest value prize. This means the more PartyPoints you earn the bigger and better your prize haul will be once the promotion finally ends. Earn just 500 points and you will receive each prize up to that rung of the ladder. This means you would win $20 in cash and entries to the iPad freeroll, the $5,000 freeroll, $10,000 freeroll and a $15,000 freeroll! Earn 40,000 points and you will receive every single prize on offer, which adds up to $5,000 in cash and $30,000 worth of freeroll entries!
PartyPoints are earned at a rate of two points per $1 generated in rake at the cash game tables or two points per $1 paid in tournament fees. Points are earned at the same rate when you play FastForward Poker, but due to how quickly the games play out in PartyPoker's "fast-fold" poker offering you should be able to earn more points in a shorter period of time by sitting at FastForward poker tables.
All you need to do if you want to win your share of these prizes is:
- Opt in on the PartyPoker site
- Earn just five PartyPoints to claim your first prize
- Collect more prizes and you earn more points
The Accelerator promotion is amazing value that is for certain, make sure you do not miss out on it. Get involved today.
