Announcing the Action-Packed PokerStars European Poker Tour Extravaganza in Paris
Paris is such a fantastic city that it’s tempting to use these pages just to recommend people visit purely for the sake of visiting, as in nothing to do with poker. As it is, despite the fact that we’re informing our PokerListings community about what will be an action-packed stop of the PokerStars European Poker Tour (EPT) in the French capital, it’s almost like the poker itself will be a distraction...
Of course, it’s absolutely possible to enjoy the wonders of the so-called City of Light as well as make the most of big money opportunities. Even if your poker horizons thus far have revolved around playing in online poker tournaments and never setting foot in a Bricks & Mortar poker room, there’s every reason to set your sights on taking part in such a prestigious poker extravaganza. Thanks to the player-friendly way in which PokerStars marries real money online poker with the live version, you can do just that.
The festival itself will take place between 16-26 February in the luxurious surroundings of the Hyatt Regency Paris Étoile and, not surprisingly, you can expect a feast of poker that features a range of formats and tournament types. Here are a few highlights:
- €50,000 buy-in EPT Super High Roller (19-21 February)
- €5,300 buy-in EPT Main Event (20-26 February)
- €3000 buy-in EPT Mystery Bounty (22-24 February)
- €10,300 buy-in EPT High Roller (24-26 February)
Of course, not all the buy-ins will be so big, but it’s anyway important to remember that, with the comprehensive satellite set-up at PokerStars, it will be possible for poker fans to qualify for events regardless of the size of their bankroll. And whether you win your way to the EPT Paris or decide to just turn up, expect to see some enormous prize pools. Let’s take the Main Event of the EPT stop in Prague, which finished in December, as an example. A field that had 1,267 entries battled away for €6,144,950 in prize money, with Jordan Saccucci of Toronto emerging the eventual winner to take home a tidy €913,250!
Will you win big in Paris...?
