Action still to look forward to...

There is still a lot to come at the Festival. Of course, there are still two day 1s of the main event to get involved in. There is also a satellite to the main event tomorrow, 18th May, for €60. If you're a fan of mixed games, there is a H.O.R.S.E. tournament on the 18th. There are three Omaha events still to come including PLO/PLO8, PLO 4/5/6 cards, PLO Freezeout, and the PLO Turbo Midnight madness. 

For the ladies, the Festival Queens event on Friday 19th is at 16:00, so pull your hair back and prepare for a card fight. The Ladies' event, as well as a few others, will be streamed on the Festival Twitch channel, so don't miss out.
