Last week, Full Tilt, an Amaya Inc. company, announced headline sponsorship of the International Poker Open (IPO) Tour.
The IPO is one of Europe’s most popular poker tours, with a rich history of large player fields at a competitive buyin, allowing all levels of poker player to experience the IPO atmosphere.
The first Full Tilt IPO event kicks off on Friday, May 22nd with the $250 IPO Bray main event held at the Star Casino Bray, just outside Dublin, Ireland.
“We’re very happy to put the Full Tilt stamp on an already-successful tournament series,” says Full Tilt’s Managing Director Dominic Mansour. “With affordable buy-ins and satellites but big prize pools, we’re giving players of all levels a great live poker tournament experience, whatever their bankroll. Last year’s Dublin Main Event attracted over 1,600 entries for a €330,000 prizepool – our goal is to top those numbers by boosting online qualification.”
Players can qualify for any IPO Tour main event via daily satellites online at Full Tilt from as little as $0.25. Alternatively, there is the option to buy in directly for $250 through Full Tilt.
“The International Poker Open Tour has gone from strength to strength,” says IPO Tournament Director Stephen McLean. “With Full Tilt behind us, we’re confident that this year’s tour will be bigger and better than ever.”
The Full Tilt IPO Tour will be making stops across Ireland and the UK in the coming months, with 2016 dates already being promised to ensure an IPO event will take place every calendar month going forward.
