Press Release announces $25,000 cash race

Over $5,000 awarded each week

20th February today announces a $25,000 cash race to run from February 23rd, with more than $5,000 in cash to be awarded each week.  The poker room will also award an Irish Open package worth $5,200 to the winner of a Grand Final STT contested by ten of the cash prize winners.  

The five counting periods will run Monday-to-Sunday from February 23rd to March 29th.  The top 30 players on the leader boards at the end of each will share over $5,000 in cash, while those placed 31st – 40th will win Irish Open Sole Survivor online qualifier tokens worth $22 each.

“It’s always a great feeling to hand over a chunk of cash to our players” said Paddy Power, Communications Manager for  “Our Back That Ace Up cash races were so successful that we decided to stay as close as possible to the formula used in those, with an added Irish Open twist.  I’m certain players will welcome the new cash race with open arms and take advantage of what’s on offer – they deserve no less!”
