DUBLIN, June 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
Return of Blind Mans Bluff World Championship & Irish Mythical Championship
paddypowerpoker.com today announces the full Irish Winter Festival 2011 tournament schedule, headlined by the €1,000 + €100 NLH Freezeout main event. The festival will take place over October Bank Holiday weekend (28th - 31st October 2011) in the Burlington Hotel, Dublin. Paddy Power Poker are very proud of this.
The €100 Blind Man's Bluff World Championship returns on the Saturday night for its second year, an easy decision to make considering the hours of amusement the tournament provided for players and spectators alike in 2010 (see photo's attached). In the end, Pavel Pravdukhin was able to master the mind game and took home the coveted title and just under €2,000 in cash.
Mythical players will also be pleased to see the €100 Irish Mythical Championship tournament on the festival schedule once more, as will Omaha players due to the addition of a two-day €200 Pot Limit Omaha tournament scheduled to take place on Sunday 30th & Monday 31st October 2011.
Once again, anyone who is looking for their last opportunity to win their ticket into the Irish Winter Festival main event, a €100 Super Satellite will take place on the Friday night and one main event seat will be awarded for every €1,100 in the pot.
"It's that time of year again and we are excited to announce the Irish Winter Festival 2011 full schedule of events. I look forward to once more watching the comical and chaotic event that is the Blind Man's Bluff World Championship, and am I interested to see who will take home the title of Irish Winter Festival 2011 Champion and a wad of cash to boot. It would be nice to follow the success of the Irish Open and have not only an Irish winner but also a paddypowerpoker.com qualifier take the crown," said Paddy Power, Communications Manager for paddypowerpoker.com.
