This year will be special for European poker players, as the EPT Season 11 will hit a milestone in August. The 100th European Poker Tour event will kick off in Barcelona and the organisers have already released some key dates for the upcoming tour.
Past performances suggest that this edition of the European Poker Tour will be truly spectacular, as the number of players who participate each year is on the rise. Last season, there were over 9,000 people willing to pay the buy-in for one of the numerous events of the Barcelona Poker Festival. Overall, the EPT Season 10 attracted a staggering 40k players and the best is yet to come, as the Grand Final is currently taking place in Monte Carlo.
There are plenty of prizes to collect and EPT tournaments to win before the end of the year and the 100th EPT is expected to be truly special. It all begins on August 16th and in order to make sure that players won’t have to make a difficult choice, the EPT Barcelona Poker Festival and the Estrellas Poker Tour will start at the same time and conclude 10 days later.
The European Poker Tour will continue with the EPT London which is scheduled for the second half of October and 2014 is expected to end on a high note with the EPT Prague in December. The year will be over in 8 months, but the EPT continues in Deauville and it will be wrapped up by the EPT Grand Final.
For the time being, the dates for the next 5 European Poker Tour destinations are available as seen below:
The organisers have paid attention to what the players demanded last season and new events have been added, including Stud, Omaha and HORSE tournaments. Those who can’t afford to pay the buy-in out of their own pocket will have plenty of satellites to choose from and fun events such as Crazy Pineapple or Deuces Wild which are also confirmed. Once again, the ladies of poker will have their own tournaments and for the first time ever, there will be special events for seniors that will only set them back €200.
