Ex-actor turned poker pro Michael Greco and Irish football legend Tony Cascarino will also be at hand to give players of all levels expert guidance and game analysis.

NETELLER will have a significant presence on the ground at the event, as well as sponsoring the takeaway bags at this event.  Poker players will be able to sign up instantly at the NETELLER stand, taking advantage of our VIP promotion which will allow those players to obtain 3 months’ VIP status and related benefits for free.
