Full European Poker Tour schedule announced

Thursday, 5 November 2009

The full schedule for the second half of the PokerStars European Poker Tour has been revealed, with eight events culminating in the Monte Carlo grand final at the end of April 2010.

The new addition to the roster, EPT Snowfest, takes place in the Austrian Alps – more specifically in the unpronounceable Saalbach-Hinterglemm. The EPT is now the world’s largest poker tour both in terms of prize pools and amount of players.

"There has been huge enthusiasm for the new EPT schedule and also for the bigger ’Festivals of Poker’ like the one we held in London, and will be holding at the PCA, Sanremo and Monte Carlo events,” said John Duthie, Chief Executive of the PokerStars.com European Poker Tour.

“The spectacular success of the EPT London Poker Festival a few weeks ago shows that players really relish the chance to play more side events, with a variety of games and buy-ins. We had huge names entering – and winning – these events which created massive interest throughout the week. With 730 players, the Main Event broke the record for the biggest poker tournament ever held in the UK!”
