About

Unibet Open is heading back to Dublin for the first time in seven years. The five-day festival will run from November 21 to 25 with plenty of opportunities for players to qualify for the Main Event online at Unibet Poker.

This is Unibet Open’s second visit to the Irish capital after the tour’s debut event there in 2011. As well as the flagship €1,000 + €100 Main Event, the packed schedule is set to include a two-day €2,000 + €200 High Roller plus several other side events including the popular €80 + €10 #QueenRules Ladies Event which will be hosted by Unibet Ambassador Daiva Byrne.

Unibet’s return to Dublin is especially welcome for Unibet Ambassadors Dara O’Kearney, David Lappin and Ian Simpson. O’Kearney cashed in the first Unibet Open Dublin back in 2011, Lappin is a Dubliner and Simpson proposed to his girlfriend Emma there immediately after winning the Irish Open in 2013.

O’Kearney, who hails from County Clare, said: “I’m thrilled that after a seven year absence the Unibet Open is coming back to Ireland. 2011 Dublin was my first Unibet Open and I’m delighted that another generation of Irish players will get the chance to experience all the atmosphere and craic that makes Unibet events so special. I’m also looking forward to welcoming all the Unibet regulars and Chip Race listeners to enjoy the unique experience that comes with playing in Ireland.”

Lappin added: “Unibet love to spoil their players so I’m absolutely delighted that the final Unibet Open of 2018 will be in my hometown of Dublin. Between the poker, the parties and the craic at the bar, it’s going to be an absolutely amazing event.”

Simpson, who won the Irish Open for €265,000 in 2013, said: “Playing poker in Dublin is especially sentimental to me. It’s where my poker journey started when I came fourth in the Irish Open in 2012. I went on to win the event the very next year, but more importantly won my wife Emma’s hand in marriage. Having Unibet run an event there is incredibly exciting, as our team is the best there is. Couple that with how much I love the city and the Irish poker community and you’ve got the perfect event for me.”

Unibet Open is expecting a huge turn out for November’s event. Poker is enormously popular in Ireland and Dublin has a rich heritage when it comes to hosting world-class tournaments. Once again, proceedings will be run 2016 November Niner Kenny Hallaert. Hallaert won a staggering four awards at this year’s Belgian Poker Awards including Performance of the Year and People’s Champion.

Unibet Open Dublin will have a live stream running on twitch.tv/unibetpoker throughout the festival with Unibet Ambassador and expert commentator David Vanderheyden joined by special guests to follow all the action from the feature table.

A special €10,000 invitational “Battle Royale” freeroll will also take place featuring Unibet’s sponsored eSports players battling it out for a €5,000 first prize.
