The Paddy Power Irish Open poker tournament may be over and as reported in the poker tournament news it was won by Belgian Kevin Vandersmissen but that does not mean that poker tournaments are finished for another year as there is still plenty going on. The next big one here at poker tournament news is the WSOP (World Series of Poker) in Las Vegas held between July 6th and 14th and although this carries a hefty $10,000 entry fee you can get in for much less through satellite tournaments such as those at Paddy Power Poker but as this is a prestigious event even those tournaments carry an entry fee of $500 but they are running Thursdays and Sundays. Paddy Power poker has lots of other tournaments running on a daily basis for Irish poker players so you don’t have to scour the poker tournament news to find one unless you are after the big prize. Of course Paddy Power Poker is not the only one to offer online poker tournaments and poker tournament news here at onlinepoker.ie would like to draw your attention to the huge array of poker tournaments available at the very famous Party Poker. Party Poker has tournaments starting from as little as $1 entry and as these are sit and go, which means that once the required number of players have registered the game begins, there is generally no waiting around. An interesting format of poker tournament play that poker tournament news has found is also at Party Poker and that is called “shootout” where in a multi table tournament you start to receive prize money simply by finishing in the top three at the first table but of course you also go through to the nest round where you can win again. This is a great tournament to spread the prize money around so take a look at Party poker.
