Fintan Hand to Host Exclusive €10,000 Meet-Up Game at Irish Poker Open

IPO Meet Up

The highly anticipated 2023 Irish Poker Open (IPO) returns to Dublin next month from April 3-10.

PokerStars and Paddy Power have joined forces to sponsor the series, which is headlined by the €1,050 buy-in Irish Open Main Event and comes with an impressive €1 million guarantee.

One familiar face already confirmed to be at the IPO is PokerStars ambassador Fintan "easywithaces" Hand. Members of his community are now being invited to play in one of his online Home Games, where 70 seats are up for grabs for his exclusive community meet-up game at the IPO

From March 15-17, special community games are being hosted in Hands' Home Game Club where the top ten finishers in any of the tournaments will bag an invite to the Royal Dublin Society (RDS) for the private tournament.

An incredible 70 seats are being dished out, and the buy-in for these home games is just $1.10!

And what's even better is that PokerStars and Paddy Power have added €10,000 to the meet-up game and IPO Main Event for the winner. The top 18 players will walk away with a slice of the prize pool, and in addition to the ticket, the last player standing will bank a further €2,150 in prize money.

There are also bounties on the heads of all PokerStars Ambassadors playing in the event. Knocking out Hand will also result in a €1,150 IPO Main Event ticket, with additional bounties to be announced.
