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. There will 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 event there in 2011. The main event will be €1,000 + €100. Another highlight tournament is a two-day €2,000 + €200 High Roller. There will also be several side events. One of them is the popular €80 + €10 #QueenRules Ladies Event. The host of this event will be Unibet Ambassador Daiva Byrne.
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.”
