Partypoker published the full schedule today and confirmed two tournaments will get things underway this Friday.

A €250,000 guaranteed “opener” will kick things off as the series builds towards its €1 million main event.

Different Setting but Same Old Craic

The 2018 Irish Poker Masters main event attracted 805 entrants and, while this year’s series will be slightly different, the aim is to beat that total.

Satellites for the €1,100 online main event are running now and weekly finals will award at least 50 seats. On top of this, Partypoker has reiterated its novice-friendly approach to online poker.

In a note accompanying the finalized schedule, Partypoker made it clear the entry conditions won’t necessarily favor high rollers.

“All the Irish Poker Masters tournaments are designed to be as fun and fair as can be. Our dedication to levelling the playing field continues with us limiting re-entry in each event and reducing the late registration period. These measures are in place in addition to the banning of heads-up displays (HUD),” reads the statement.

As well as satellites to the main event, a selection of “mini” MTTs have been interspersed throughout the schedule. The scaled down tournaments costs between €22 and €55 and cover a range of formats, including heads-up, deep-stacked, and Omaha.

Irish Poker Masters Online Has Something for Everyone

Naturally, the schedule also features plenty of options for poker’s elite. Everything from a €1,050 PLO showdown to a €2,100 high roller will take place between December 4 and 16.

Partypoker has parlayed its tournament success over the last two years into another positive run in 2020. With live poker events put on hold due to COVID-19, the GVC Holding’s subsidiary has stepped up to the plate.

As well as turning various Partypoker Live events into online offerings, it’s hosted multiple WPT festivals. Interest has been strong across the board with prizepools surpassing the $100 million mark.

The Irish Poker Masters Online keeps the ball rolling as we head towards the end of a year we’d like to forget. What’s more, it’s a chance to show the how live and online poker events can co-exist and support each other moving forward.
