- Online Qualifiers for Europe's Largest Poker Tournament, the International Poker Open Will Play in Exclusive Online and Offline Freeroll for $5,000 Sponsorship Package

Boylepoker.com today launches an exclusive promotion for all online qualifiers for the upcoming Boylepoker.com International Poker Open.

All IPO online qualifiers before Sept. 20 will be eligible to play in an exclusive online freeroll which will play down to a final table of eight. Play will then be suspended and the final table will resume (with chips stacks the same as when play was suspended) at the Regency Hotel, Dublin on October 15, 2010 at 8 p.m.

The winner of the tournament will receive a $5,000 sponsorship package and the runner up will receive an IPO 2011 ticket. All final table players will receive free accommodation on Oct. 15 courtesy of Boylepoker.com.

Players can qualify for the IPO in a weekly final each Sunday with three feeder satellites supporting it. The full schedule is:

    Monday 7:45 BST - $5 + $0.5c no-limit hold'em rebuy/add-on
    Wednesday 7:45 BST - $5 + $0.5c no-limit hold'em freezeout
    Friday 7:45 BST - $10 + $1 no-limit hold'em freezeout
    Sunday 7:45 BST - $30 + $3 no-limit hold'em freezeout weekly final

Lisa Condon of Boylepoker.com said, "We want the Boylepoker.com International Poker Open to be the best value tournament around and this is just another example, along with the money we're already adding to the prize pool, of how we're giving something back to our players - you can play a lot of poker with $5,000!"

The EUR180 + EUR20 buy-in IPO is a no-limit hold'em freezeout taking place from October 15 to 17, 2010 at the Regency Hotel, Dublin. It will have an estimated prize pool of EUR250,000 including EUR20,000 added by Boylepoker.com.

To register for the tournament simply download the Boylepoker.com software (http://www.boylepoker.com), open the Poker Lobby, go to 'Scheduled Tournaments' > 'Specials' > 'Boylepoker Exclusives' and choose your preferred start date.

Players should register early to avoid disappointment as last year's event sold out long before the closing date. It attracted a record-breaking field of 1,440 runners from 18 countries and was won by German Markus Sippe, who took home $62,250 for topping the field.
