Hope they will have some cheap online satellites to some of these toruneys via party so the average player could get a chance to participate as well because neither of these seems affordable to my right now yet I wouldn't mind to go...
Of course, playing in a live tournament would be very interesting .... especially if you go through some Satellite with a small fee .... but Ireland is rather far and therefore for me it is not very interesting .... for sure in 2019 there will be tournaments in Sochi ..... Sochi is so much more interesting for me .... I will try to select there

Reading this news about irish ppker open i personally think it is very good sound main event to have 1 million guarantee prize money and only 1150 euros buy in, of course not say it is small money to buyin but in live event was tu big prize money it is small buyin

It is going to be another good event. Not one of the biggest in prize money of course but a very respectable one. They are having side events also with smaller buy ins, that will attract more players. The buy in for the main event is not one that any player can afford, but lots will try for these satellite tickets in ipoker network.

Is a sin as the satellites of this tournament will only exist in Betfair Poker. Is a big series as it says here, and could do satellites in other rooms, outside of the I Poker Network or maybe there is a rule and certain criteria, according to the organizers. Now you guys have to play satellites for few live games in Betfair but me i can not because of restrictions... I want to visit Ireland in future like tourist and maybe to play a live tournament. Live i did not play until now.
