The World Series of Poker (WSOP) will soon end.
I think partypoker had PokerStars on the ropes.
I can’t remember.
Anyway, as PokerStars announces a myriad of new ways that you can qualify for the $25,000 PokerStars’ Player’s No-Limit Hold’em Championship (PSPC), partypoker release a couple of news bulletins of their own.
The first is news of a new achievement in Irish poker as partypoker LIVE sponsor the Irish Poker Masters and stick a €1m Guarantee on the side of the tin.
The festival happens 5-9 September.
INEC & Gleneagle Hotel, Killarney act as hosts.
The Main Event carries a €1,150 buy-in, and if you are fortunate enough to have enough cash to compete, then you can choose from five starting flights. To win the thing you will have to get through a Day 2 & Day 3.
Here is the schedule in full
partypoker hired Padraig Parkinson to put some pizzazz into Irish poker, and the laugh-a-minute Irish legend believes that the venue is in the middle of such splendour that only God could have designed it.
Easy there Padraig, don’t you know you should never mix poker and religion.
If you want a little something for nothing, then consider using PP LIVE $. The first 100 players who buy into the Irish Poker Masters Main Event using PP LIVE $ are given a free hotel room at the God made gaff in question from 6-10 September, worth €600.
Monster Series Returns With Over $2m Guaranteed.
If you live nowhere near Ireland, but still want some partypoker action, you’re in luck.
29 July – 6 August, it’s time to stop staring at mothers who breastfeed in coffee shops, and instead, settle down in front of an electronic device or two for the third iteration of the Monster Series.

Crikey, it sounds like a collection of sex toys.
