All IPO players are welcome to join in the fun at the Irish Poker Awards and toast the best Ireland has to offer.

“The IPO is what poker is supposed to be about,” said The Voice of Poker Jesse May. “You get to be a part of the main event for the price of a satellite. Last year I had so much fun, I booked my ticket for next year well before level two! It’s such a great weekend, the only thing as much fun as still being in the tournament is being at the bar the day after you get knocked out! A great weekend full of great poker, great people, and plenty of stories at the bar.”
