According to the communications manager at Paddy Poker, the online casino as well as players are very excited about the Doubles tournament. It will be called the Double Chance tournament. The highlight about the tournament is that the casino ensures that both the players of the team will have a chance of play. If one of the teammates performs badly in the previous rounds, it will not affect the eligibility of the second player for other games. Considering the interesting aspects of this first ever poker format, the structure is definitely going to be a huge hit.
