The European Masters of Poker has released the schedule for its second season, including six €1,000 main events, a €1,500 grand final in Malta and a Mexican cruise for the top 16 players on the tour.

Organizers anticipate more than 1,400 players will attend main events during this second season, starting with the Ljubljana, Slovenia leg of the tour at the Grand Casino Nov. 25-28, 2009.

"The players really love it," said EMOP product manager Christer Larsson. "EMOP season II is on its way and we are proud to present new great venues."
