The International Poker Open in London 2013 is sponsored by Boylepoker.com. It’s said that there will be an additional £5,000 cash being added to the total available winnings, allowing the top ten finishers to pad their winnings by an extra £500 each.
Established back in 2008, BoylePoker has fastly grown as an online hub for poker and now accommodates an extremely large number of regular players.
Sponsoring high profile poker events has only helped to increase BoylePoker’s visibility in the cut throat and competitive online poker community. BoylePoker is part of Boylesports Group, the largest independent bookmaker in Ireland. John Boyle started the company in 1982 with the stated mission of creating a modern sports betting service. Since then, they have become something of an unstoppable force, which has been enjoying unparalleled success.
BoySports accounts came out originally, so anyone with one of these vintage accounts can use them to get started with BoylePoker. However, Mac and Linux users are currently unable to download this application onto their computers, and, as BoylePoker needs to be downloaded first before you can enjoy any game play, only Windows users can partake.
There are always a healthy number of players at the tables in BoylePoker’s online poker rooms. If you’re a player mainly interested in bigger tournaments, you wont be disappointed here. You’ll also find that they host real live poker events, hosting their own major tournament called the IPO London 2013.
All players have a run in this tournament but in order to qualify for the Extra Cash competition, players must earn several hundred iPoints at the website within a 2 month period from now until the middle of April. Also, players earning 1,000 points in any single month from Feb, March or until April 14 are also qualified. All qualified players can then join the IPO London 2013. As mentioned earlier, only the last 10 qualifiers who remain in the tournament will take home the bonus cash.
This is not the first time Extra Cash was used, as the head of BoylePoker.com’s online poker room, Ciaran Corbett said,
Our Extra Cash promotion proved really popular at IPO Dublin so we thought we’d bring it back and add a little spice to the proceedings – who doesn’t want the chance to win £500 for absolutely nothing?
It’s only been a week since we launched IPO London and already we’ve seen a surge in players trying to qualify online so it looks like it’s going to be its usual competitive affair!
The tournament will be located in Stratford, London at the Aspers Casino. Registration is currently available on BoylePoker.com. Another promising and exciting event that will happen in the near future is the BoylePoker International Open 2013, which will take place this the third week of April.
