2021 Irish Poker Open highlights and how to play

The biggest prize pool across the Irish Poker Open series comes through the €1,100 buy-in Main Event. The tournament awards €1,000,000 guaranteed, running March 28 through April 7.

Day 1 flights for the Main Event run Sunday, March 28, Sunday, April 4, and Monday, April 5. Surviving players from those three starting flights reconvene for Day 2 in the evening of April 5.

The Main Event then progresses through two more days, with the championship to be decided on Wednesday, April 7. Satellite qualifiers to the Main Event start as low as €0.01 buy-in.

The €55 Grand Prix Ireland event will likely draw the largest field of any tournament in the series. The tournament guarantees €250,000 at just a €55 buy-in, and runs nine different Day 1 flights.

Day 1 flights for the €55 Grand Prix run once per day March 28 through April 5. Day 2 restarts in the evening of April 5 and crowns a champion on Tuesday, April 6.

Several other events on the Irish Poker Open schedule offer six-figure guarantees, as partypoker hosts the event online for a second consecutive year.

The 2021 Irish Poker Open is accessible in all countries with legal access to partypoker’s main online poker platform. Partypoker is available in many areas of the world, but U.S. players can’t legally play on the site.
