The Irish Open

The 2023 Irish Open Main Event was the biggest poker tournament ever held in Ireland and attracted a staggering 2,491 entries. The prize pool more than double the guarantee at €2,428,725 and players were awarded more than €4.5 million in prize money across the whole festival.

The Irish Open – the longest-running No Limit poker tournament in Europe – is a hugely popular event and a mainstay of the European poker calendar. Thousands attend the event every year and past Main Event champions include the likes of James Mitchell, Kevin Vandersmissen, Ian Simpson, Patrick Clarke, Griffin Benger, Steve O’Dwyer and – most recently – Scottish poker wiz and UKIPT Player of the Year 2023, David Docherty.

The €1,000,000 guaranteed Main Event, coupled with legendary Dublin hospitality, makes the Irish Open a truly unmissable event. Since it was first held back in 1981, the event is now the longest-running No Limit Texas Hold’em poker tournament in the world after the World Series of Poker. The festival has become a must-attend stop on the international poker circuit for players from as far afield as Australia, Canada and the USA – and provides craic on a level seen nowhere else in the world.
