EPT expands into Poland

The European Poker Tour (EPT) just keeps growing, and now it has added another event to its third season. In March, poker players can head to Warsaw, Poland, for a little more poker action before the grand final in Monte Carlo.

Housed at the Hyatt Regency in Warsaw, this four-day Texas Hold'em event will take place March 14-17. It has a $15,000 PLN buy-in, which is approximately €4,000.

This is an inaugural event for the EPT in Warsaw, and EPT CEO John Duthie told media that it will help raise poker's profile in eastern Europe.

The tournament will be capped at 300 players and won't be televised.

Poker players looking to win their way into the event can do so at PokerStars.com which sponsors the EPT. For as little as $11, people can win a prize package to the event that includes the buy-in and other perks.

Last season, the EPT paid out more than $12 million to participants. Already this year, the tour has paid out more than $10 million and there are still five events left to go in the season.

Next up will be the Scandinavian Open in Copenhagen Denmark Jan. 17-21, followed by events in France, Germany, Poland and Monoco.
