Welcome to the 2017 Winamax Poker Open! The festival is already two days old, and the venue is already packed with pplayers enjoying all the fun that the Irish capital has to offer.
The festival has a new setting this year, which offers twice as much space, as well as its fair share of surprises. This is the 8th edition of the WPO and it is taking place at the Citywest luxury resort just outside of Dublin.
Today marks the start of the €550 Main Event, which was won last year by Antonin Teisseire, who took home €72,000 for his efforts.
Players will receive 50,000 chips, and will play 14 40-minute levels today before bagging up for Day 2. Players are allowed one re-entry per day 1, with late-registration and re-entry open until level ten, with the maximum number of bullets permitted being four.
Cards will be in the air around 12 p.m. local time, so stay tuned to PokerNews for all the live updates from Dublin.
