The Israeli Poker Championship (IPC) is back in Malta once again, where several hundred Israeli poker players will be battling against locals and players from the rest of the world. The IPC always attracts a great crowd of poker players, due to the extraordinary atmosphere and the many great events made available.
It has only been a few months since the IPC came by the Portomaso Casino in Malta the last time, but the players wanted to have a tournament series before the end of the year and due to the weather conditions in Malta, it was the natural choice to go to.
The IPC officially starts tomorrow at 16.00 CET, where the main event starts. There will be a satellite to the main event tonight however, with a 100 player cap. Tonight's satellite costs €45 and will guarantee 1 seat per 10 participants, similar to a sit n go satellite.
The main event will have two different starting days, which allows players who plays Day 1a to also play Day 1b if they bust out in the first try. It is expected that around 200-250 players will be playing the main event, creating a prize pool of around €80,000-€100,000 and €15,000-€20,000 for the first place finisher.
Besides the main event, there will also be a total of three side events. The side events includes a €200 Pot Limit Omaha event, a €300 Super Side Event and finally a €200 Turbo Freezeout, you can see all the details in the picture below.
iGaming.org will once again be covering the main event of the IPC, sending our reporters to the battleground to report the most interesting hands, do chip counts, report from the tournament area, take pictures, do interviews and everything else that you could possibly want. You can follow the reporting right here.
We will cover who busts out, the total prize pool, who wins what as well as do an extensive coverage of the final table so you can get the best possible overview over the tournament from the comfort of your own home. We are looking forward to welcoming the IPC back to Malta, providing you with all the most important moments of the tournament and to watch some of the best poker players battle for the first prize. See you tomorrow at the Portomaso Casino.
