PokerStars EPT to return to Austria for Season 7

PokerStars EPT to return to Austria for Season 7

Thursday, 5 August 2010

Austrian poker players really have got something to get excited about now that PokerStars have announced the newest stop on the European Poker Tour to be, in fact, an old stop on the European Poker Tour.

Austria’s capital city of Vienna will play host to hundreds of poker hopefuls in a €5,300 Main Event guaranteeing €500,000 for first prize.

“I am really looking forward to playing in an EPT event held in my new home town,” PokerStars Team Pro Johannes Steindl said. “I have been living in Vienna for three months and it is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. I’ll be playing my best game to try and take home the €500,000 guaranteed first prize!”

The main event (and side tournaments, of course) will take place at the Concord Card Casino at the Kursalon in Vienna, running for five days from October 26.

The EPT season 7 kicks off next week in Tallinn (all in?), Estonia. It’s not too late to get in on the action around Europe, though, as PokerStars are still running satellites to events in London, Paris, Berlin and more.
