The deal will see GGPoker’s online poker room offer satellites to the festival’s headline tournament, the European Deepstack Poker Championship and the Amateur Championship of Poker.

The festival runs from 16 February to 26 February and is now in its 15th year, with €200,000 ($211,000) in guaranteed prizes to be won from a €570 buy-in for the Deepstack event.

Furthermore, the amateur event features a €100,000 prize pool from a €300 buy-in.

Angela Martin, UK & Ireland Head of Marketing at GGPoker, said: “We are delighted to announce this partnership with the Dublin Poker Festival and give all GGPoker players the opportunity to win their seats in some of Ireland’s best-loved poker events.

“With hundreds of thousands in guaranteed prizes to be won and satellites starting from just €1, Dublin will be the place to be in February, and we want as many GGPoker players there as possible.”

Meanwhile, Brian Lannon of Dublin Poker Festival added: "This is a fantastic partnership for Dublin Poker Festival, and we look forward to working with GGPoker, giving a wider player base the opportunity to play in this fantastic poker festival. We look forward to building a close partnership with GGPoker and growing our event."

In recent news, the World Series of Poker (WSOP) and GGPoker Network announced that WSOP.ca is now available in Ontario.

Players based in the Canadian province with existing GGPoker accounts now have to transfer them to WSOP.ca; once their accounts are successfully verified and transferred to the new online poker room, they will gain access to the new platform.
