Back to Baile Átha Cliath

Unfortunately I missed the International Poker Open in Dublin last fall. But now I'm finally back for the "European Deepstack Poker Championships". Unfortunately they don't have a six-handed event like last year ... but it's still very deepstacked. There's a rumor that they will do a short-handed festival later this year. I love this idea!

The current weather in Dublin is horrible. It's cold with a mix of snow and rain. I'm more then happy that I choose to stay in the hotel were the event takes place. It's somewhat outside of the city but can be easily reached by the LUAS (Dublin's tram system).

Didn't feel too well for the whole day for some reason. The bad wheather didn't help either. But after I checked into my room, got a real hot shower and a chicken ceasar salad for dinner I now feel good and prepared for the first tournament.

Tonight there's a supersatellite for tomorrows main-event. Hopefully I can qualify for the main-event (which has a €1,500 buy-in) ... if not I will play the side events. Already checked out the room and made my initial buy-in for the satellite.

There's quite good wireless reception here in the hotel (and it's for free). Hopefully this is also valid for the conference center and I can twitter my updates again.
