The PokerStars European Poker Tour grand final takes place 12th – 17th April in Monte Carlo, and as always with the EPT events, PokerStars to send as many of their players as possible to the event.
On Saturday, Jan. 19, PokerStars will hold a $1,050 qualifier to the EPT’s championship, which has a buy-in of approximately $14,000 (€10,000). PokerStars guarantees that 16 prize packages will be awarded in this qualifier. Each prize package is worth about $19,250.
Super-satellites to this qualifier are now taking place at PokerStars, and they start for as little as $5.50 (plus rebuys).
Players can also qualify for the $1,050 qualifier by playing in tournaments with buy-ins of $8.88 (plus rebuys), $33 double shootouts (turbo), $22 (plus rebuys), and $109.
Qualifiers are already up and running, and will run until the $1,050 event itself.
Last year, Gavin Griffin won $2.4 million for winning the EPT grand final. Griffin qualified for the event through a $240 double shootout at PokerStars. What is even more impressive is that four of the players who finished in the top six at last year’s event qualified through PokerStars. Last year's event attracted 706 players.
