Paddy Power is running an exclusive satellite for the Irish Open every Tuesday with an extra €1,150 Irish Open seat added to the prize pool. The €50 buy-in satellite will take place weekly at 8.30pm and will be live-streamed by Paddy Power Twitch Ambassador Conor “ccoonnoorrr” O’Driscoll.
As an added bonus, the Irish pro is hosting a freeroll 90 minutes before the qualifier starts with two €50 satellite buy-ins up for grabs. He will be giving out the password on air during his stream. Irish Open organiser JP McCann will be a guest on the stream Tuesday (January 30) and chatting about what to expect at this year’s event.
O’Driscoll’s popular Tuesday evening Home Game slot often has added value seats and packages as fans log in to watch his live streams.The new Irish Open satellite is only available to Paddy Power players and forms part of the site’s enthusiastic sponsorship of this year’s festival which is expected to break records once again.
O’Driscoll, who hails from Limerick, first hit the spotlight in 2020 when he took down the PartyPoker World Poker Tour Online for $121,980. Soon after, he followed it up with a $228,000 score in the GGPoker Global Millions event. The huge cashes were perfect timing for O’Driscoll and his girlfriend as they had just discovered they were expecting their first child.
O’Driscoll, 34, is a regular at the Irish Open and has cashed in numerous side events as well as the Main Event last year when he finished 125th. He said: “I’ve been playing the event for around eight years now and it’s definitely always worth playing the online satellites! I haven’t won a seat for this year’s event YET but I usually manage to win one or two seats which certainly helps the bankroll. I’m really looking forward to the Irish Open this year and hanging out with my Twitch community – in fact, I often end up spending more time with those players than people I have known for years!
“The Irish Open is a great tournament and it’s ideal for new players too. It’s a really fun laid-back event and nobody tends to take themselves too seriously. Just come along and enjoy yourself!”
