Anyone Can Be a Winner at EPT 2023 Events Thanks to PokerStars Qualifiers
It’s a testament to real money online poker that, for many, it’s the only version of the game most poker fans have ever experienced. With some excellent online poker rooms offering everything from Texas Hold'em and Omaha cash tables to Sit & Go games, multi-table online poker tournaments and more, there’s a feast of poker to be had at our fingertips.
Having said that, if you've never experienced live poker, you’ve been missing out, so with that in mind, here’s the latest about the European Poker Tour (EPT), the prestigious collection of big money poker festivals from PokerStars in their bid to make ‘tour’ poker available to all.
The latest EPT spectacular is currently being held in Paris at the Hyatt Regency Paris Étoile, the city’s tallest skyscraper hotel. Continuing until 26 February, this is the first time the tour has hit the French capital, despite having visited many times over the years. You can get a feel as to what to expect at EPT events by following the action in Paris via the Blog at PokerStars Learn where, amongst other things, you can find all sorts of resources to help improve your game.
As an indication of how much money is paid out at EPT events, one of the protagonists in Paris this week is Jordan Saccucci who, just before Christmas, bagged the top spot in the EPT Prague Main Event (the 2022 closer) for a cool €913,250... In a record-breaking field of 1,267 entries, the total prize pool was €6,144,950 -and the great news for poker fans is that you can qualify for EPT events in 2023 via a comprehensive satellite set-up at PokerStars!
Regardless of the size of your bankroll, simply log on to PokerStars, check out the qualifiers and you’ll find out how to earn your way to EPT events at bargain basement prices. And here’s the mouth-watering schedule for this year:
- Monte Carlo, 26 April to 6 May
- Barcelona, 21 August to 3 September
- Cyprus, 11-22 October
- Prague, 6-17 December
Incidentally, by prestigious, we mean exactly that. EPT events are not just frequented by some of the world’s best poker players alongside ambitious qualifiers and other recreational players, attracted by the prospect of fame and life-changing sums of money. You’ll also find the likes of Neymar Jr, one of the planet’s greatest football players! You might know him as a mercurial forward for Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) or a kingpin of the mighty Brazilian national team, but he is, in fact, a keen and talented poker player.
Paris isn’t his first rodeo, as they say, as he has been enjoying the action at EPT stops for a number of years, often alongside his former Barça teammate Gerard Piqué. Poker truly is a global favourite...
With that in mind, you can make the most of the latest online poker bonuses available in our info section. Good luck at the tables, and have fun!
