The Austrian capital, steeped in culture and history and awash with fancy cakes, is a popular place to visit, so adding an international poker festival into the mix was bound to attract considerable attention. And there’s also the matter of the €200,000 in guaranteed prizes in the Main Event, which spans 21-24 January, 2016 and will be held at the Montesino Casino.
Our satellite set-up couldn’t be more bankroll and user friendly, with initial buy-ins starting at 25c! Phill Huxley (aka Rixdorf) is becoming a seasoned campaigner on the MPN Poker Tour and, hot on the heels of his cashing in Dublin (click here), managed to win the €1,500 package that was up for grabs in our recent 94-player Vienna Freeroll. He was in contention from quite early on and established a strong footing as the tournament reached the final table which, as was pointed out by the numerous ‘spectators’ was an edge-of-your seat humdinger as the players were eventually reduced to Phill and our chess pro turned poker specialist Angus Dunnington (AngusD). Phill started the heads-up ‘match’ with a big chip lead but the roles were gradually reversed, leaving Angus in the driving seat – only to ‘mess up’ (his own words) when he ignored his inner voice and shove with 99 when Phill had QQ. It could have gone either way, but Angus can (sort of) console himself with the €550 buy-in for Vienna that was on offer for the runner-up (there was also another €1,000 won in MPNPT tickets!).
Meanwhile, the vastly experienced Dara O’Kearney (HopAlongHnsn; also in Dublin), who had also been in the running (finishing 9th) in the same tournament, was rewarded for his efforts when he won the Sunday Package Final after coming from behind heads-up.

Poker is fun, and winning is a nice bonus. Ronald Alino, from Toronto, Canada, who goes by the alias lil_J, is no stranger to winning at 32Red Poker. He earned himself a great ‘bonus’ over the weekend when he won Sunday’s MPNPT Package Final, pocketing a €1,500 package for Dublin’s hosting of the MPN Poker Tour (2-6 September). No stranger to the tour, having taken part in Tbilisi, let’s hope Ronald tastes success in Dublin.
Those of you who’d like to try out the atmosphere of a poker festival – not forgetting the €250,000 in guaranteed prizes in the Main Event in Dublin – can still win a seat or a package in our nightly Last Chance satellites. These run every evening (at 7pm UK time) until 30 August.
The Bad Beat Jackpot has been hit, paying out multiple players who opted in and were playing at the same blinds level as the ‘winning’ hand.

Do the same – don’t miss out…
In an age of gadgets, 32Red Poker players can get their hands on some in this month’s promotion. In fact there’s €30,000 worth of nifty gadgets and cash to be won, and all you have to do to have a chance of winning is play a few raked hands between June 5-21.
Bose Bluetooth speakers (top three prizes), Apple iPad Air (4th-7th prizes), €500 (19th) … €20 (181th-240th) … even €5 to add to the bankroll for finishing 725th – and there’s no effort involved once you’ve racked up enough raked hands. This is because the prize tournament (June 23) is a Flip format, where everyone is all-in every hand.
1 raked hand per day over any 5 days during the promotional period earns a tournament ticket, while more raked hands help you boost your starting stack (and, consequently, your chances of survival).
Play a $250,000 poker tournament in Tbilisi by qualifying at 32Red Poker this Sunday in our MPNPT March Madness 7 Packages Gtd tournament (29th March, 7pm BST). The successful MPN Poker Tour’s next stop is the Georgian capital (May 28-31), and there are no less than seven €1,500 packages to be won!
Live poker is fun, exciting and presents players with an opportunity to win big cash prizes, and what better circumstances to take part than through our great value €75 + €5 satellite on Sunday? Each of the seven package winners will receive the Main Event entry ($550), four nights accommodation at the Holiday Inn (nice and close to the venue), an additional entry to a $100 side event, €400 for travel/expenses and even an invite to a MPN drinks reception.
Add to the poker festival the fact that you’ll have time to enjoy Tbilisi, an up and coming tourist destination rich in sights and culture, and this satellite is well worth putting in your diary for the weekend.

Poker is already a thrilling game, and Anonymous tables allow you to add to the intrigue by having your alias kept secret. Now at 32Red Poker you have the chance to add to your bankroll, too, thanks to our €25,000 Carnevale Promotion, which will run April 1-19. There are some big prizes worth winning, and the more hands you play at Anonymous Tables the better your chance of earning some welcome free money.
A chief attraction of Anonymous tables (marked with a red ‘A’ in the Hold’em Poker Lobby) is that the hidden aliases mean you can play without being up against opponents using data-gathering software to dissect your game. It’s poker at its purest and, understandably, it’s become an incredibly popular form of online poker.
Depending on how many raked hands you rack up at real money Anonymous tables during the April 1-14 promotional period, you’ll earn entry to one of three Carnevale Freeroll tournaments which, between them, boast €5,000 in prize funds as well as hundreds of qualifying places for the final on Sunday, April 19 at 6.30pm GMT, which has €20,000 on offer. All take place on Saturday, April 18 at 6.30pm GMT. (Note that you can also guarantee a place in the Final with 3000 raked hands).
