After the completion of the European Poker Tour Deauville over the weekend just gone, we are now left with only three more EPT stops for Season 10 in 2014. Whilst up until today we knew the schedules for the upcoming EPT Vienna in March and the EPT Sanremo in April, we did not quite know what to expect concerning the season ender in Monte Carlo.
Well, now we do!
The PokerStars and Monte Carlo Casino EPT Grand Final will be starting on the 23rd of April and will see 48 events played out until the 2nd of May.
This year they have integrated even more lower buy-in events in order to allow bankrolls of all sizes to enjoy the tenth anniversary season ender. This has been helped through the partnership of the France Poker Series who will be bringing 21 events with buy-ins at less than €500.
Plenty For The High Rollers Still Though!
It would not be a Grand Final if there were not events designed to bring in the world’s top players, so there is plenty of tournaments for them to take part in too. They have the FPS Main Event and High Roller to ease themselves in gently before the big events start rolling out. Of course, there is the Main Event with a buy in of €10,600 needed, whilst there will also be the High Roller and Super High Roller requiring €25,500 and €100,000 respectively to take part.
EPT President Edgar Stuchly said to PokerStarsBlog: “The EPT has been leading the way in live poker for ten years, and this year’s EPT Grand Final will be the biggest and best ever. With more tournaments than ever before at lower buy-ins alongside our other events plus a wide range of cash games, a greater variety of players will be able to experience the EPT, creating a fuller festival atmosphere. The EPT is a tour dedicated to providing an enjoyable and world-class poker experience for everyone, with a choice of games and buy-ins that that you simply cannot find anywhere else”.
It certainly sounds like it is going to be a festival of poker that nobody will want to miss, whilst with it starting just a couple of days after the EPT Sanremo, we are going to be in for an action packed period of poker.
Though it will mark the end of a memorable 10th season on the European Poker Tour, the start of Season 11 is not too far away either. We expect schedules to start coming in during the summer months and will let you know as soon as we do.
