The largest poker room in the world, PokerStars, has confirmed the dates and destination for the 7th season of the PokerStars European Poker Tour (EPT). The new season will debut with aÂ â‚¬4,250 debut event in Tallinn, Estonia and will run from August 11th through 16th.
The destinations are once more very appealing and a summertime visit to them is very appealing to players around the world. The top names of poker gather in Europe at this time of the year for some intense action.
Some events from season 6 were very popular and they will be happening again this year, like the event in Vilamoura, Portugal, the one in Saalbach-Hinterglemm, Austria and even the Berlin event, which created a lot of controversy last time it ran and was robbed.
Season 7 of the EPT will also feature signature events of the tour such as Barcelona, Prague, Deauville, San Remo. Copenhagen and London.Â “The EPT just gets bigger and better every season and it shows the passion and enthusiasm players feel for our events. Season 6 had a thousand more players than in Season 5 and we expect the numbers to keep on growing. The prize pool last season was well over â‚¬56 million – a â‚¬4 million increase on the previous year. Side events also proved a major attraction in Season 6 and we expect participation in these to increase even more next season.” saidÂ John Duthie, CEO and EPT Founder.
