Players familiar with the EPT will be happy to know that the venues for the returning stops haven't changed. Those locales are the Salle des Etoiles in Monte Carlo, Casino Barcelona, and the Hilton Prague.
Online Satellites For All StopsEach of the five tour stops features a €5,300 EPT Main Event and a €10,300 High Roller. The stops also hook up with regional tours such as Estrellas and Eureka to offer an abundance of smaller buy-in events as well.
Players can win seats to the 2023 EPT via online satellites at PokerStars. Sattys for EPT Paris are already underway. A Main Event package is valued at €7,400 and includes the buy-in, an eight night stay, and travel costs.
“We will continue to improve player experience both for online qualifications and at our live events,” Billot added.
