PokerStars Announces Schedule for EPT Grand Final
PokerStars has announced its complete schedule for the 2014 European Poker Tour Monte Carlo Grand Final. Running from April 23 – May 3, the 48-event poker festival will take place at the Monte Carlo Bay Hotel & Resort.Edgar Stuchly, the President of the EPT, said, “The EPT has been leading the way in live poker for ten years, and this year’s EPT Grand Final will be the biggest and best ever. With more tournaments than ever before at lower buy-ins alongside our other events plus a wide range of cash games, a greater variety of players will be able to experience the EPT, creating a fuller festival atmosphere.”
The highlight of the schedule is the €10,600 no-limit hold’em Main Event taking place from April 26 – May 2. Last year’s Main Event was won by Steve O’Dwyer who took home a prize of €1.2 million.
There are also some high roller events including the €100,000 no-limit hold’em Super High Roller, which last year paid out €1.75 million for first place.
For players on a smaller budget there are numerous options with tournament buy-ins as low as €330. There will also be 40 tables of cash-game play with hold’em, Omaha, open-face Chinese poker and many more games on offer.
