PokerStars European Poker Tour Prague Kicks Off Next Week
December has just started up meaning that there is just one more month to go until the New Year; however this certainly doesn’t mean that the poker action is done in 2012 just yet. Just next week on the 5th of December we have the PokerStars European Poker Tour Prague kicking off, with there being 38 different events for players to get their hands on.
The EPT Prague is going to be bigger than it ever has before, with these events culminating in the €5,300 Main Event which starts on the 9th of December and finishes up on the 15th. Along with the main event there is going to be a wide selection of tournaments that will suit all kinds of budgets, such as the €120 hyper turbo event and the massive €10,300 High Roller event.
Besides the events, PokerStars is going to be putting on some extra special experiences for the players, such as an exciting Laser Quest challenge.
The EPT Prague has always been one of the most popular events on the European Poker Tour; they always go the extra mile in Prague to ensure that the event is always of the highest quality. The city is also one of the most beautiful in Europe which means players can take in the sights whenever they are not at the felt.
Another reason why Prague is so popular with the players is the beer and nightlife on offer, though it is never a good idea to mix those up during an event. However, many players stay behind after the event to do a little partying.
Former Winner Finger To Defend Title!
Last year it was the German pro Martin Finger who managed to beat the 722 players to the title in the Main Event, with him taking home a huge score of €720,000 for his efforts. He has already confirmed that he will be back again this year to try and defend his title, though it will be easier said than done. There is still yet to be an EPT double winner, so if he wins he will not only retain his title but be the first double champion ever in the EPT.
PokerStars has been running satellites for the Main Event for some time, with them still going on as we speak. So if you think you have what it takes to beat Finger and the rest of the field next week, perhaps you can win your seat at the Main Event rather than paying the full buy-in.
