Last chance to be an EPT champion

By Mad Harper

The last ever European Poker Tour event kicks off on Thursday. The event features 100 tournaments at the Hilton Prague running December 8-19.  EPT Prague always provides plenty of highlights – and this is your very last chance to get your hands on a coveted EPT Trophy.  From January, the European Poker Tour is being rebranded as the PokerStars Championship. Prague is also the last chance for any previous winners to emulate Vicky Coren’s success as the EPT’s only two-time champion.

MainEventTravel has a ton of fantastic hotel options for the EPT as well as apartments. The schedule includes the €300 PokerStars Cup (starts on Thursday), €1,000 Eureka Main Event, a €50k Super High Roller, the €2k Eureka High Roller and €10k EPT High Roller. The €5,300 EPT Main Event starts next Tuesday. Check out the EPT YouTube video to see what’s in store. Last year, German player Hossein Ensan beat a field of 1,044 players to take down the Main Event for €754,510 while Steve O’Dwyer won the Super High Roller and Rainer Kempe won the €25k High Roller.
