The partypoker Fitzwilliam November Poker Festival 2017
The 2017 November Fitzwilliam Poker Festival is less quickly approaching and we have a fantastic line up to top even last year’s runaway success! At the 2016 event we were completely Sold Out for Every Event with the Main Event Hugely Oversubscribed and the Final Prize Pool of €92,800, the highest in the clubs history!
Below are some details of the 2017 Fitz Poker Festival Man Event programme:
Sponsored by Poker Giants partypoker
Broadcasting on Eirsport 1 in December
Media Partner – Sunshine Radio
Hosted by – Kate Cassin
Lead Commentary by “The Voice of Poker” – Jesse May
Colour Commentary by Irish Poker Legend – Padraig Parkinson
Guaranteed Main Event Prize Pool €50,000
The 2017 event will likely be Sold Out as there is even greater interest building from last years event. There are more qualifying events this year through nightly tournaments at the club (ongoing), online satellites (November), sponsored professionals, reservations and Club Satellites (November). As a result there will be less General Release Tickets available this year and limited time to secure a place at the poker event of the year! General tickets go on sale from Monday Sept 18th. You can Pre-Book your €450 Main Event Ticket “The Fitz Poker Championship” by clicking your linking on the link below.
The Online Satellite Programme with partypoker for the 2017 Fitz Poker Championship is now live on party! The first schedule of satellites took place last night (Sunday Oct 29th see below structure) with the Online Satellites scheduled for Every Sunday from 3pm – 9pm. The programme will continue up to the start of the festival (Sunday November 26th). Thus there will be a Minimum of 4 Nights satellites at various entry levels to facilitate as many entrants as possible. Dates will be Sunday November 5th, 12th, 19th & 26th.
We will list further details when we have them from partypoker!
