The EPT returns to the elegant seaside resort of Deauville in Normandy and joins forces with the France Poker Series for a 11-day feast of poker from January 28-February 7, 2015. With dozens of different tourneys scheduled, including the €1,100 FPS (January 28-February 1), and €5,300 EPT (February 1-February 7) Main Events, Deauville is always a firm favorite with EPT players, both old and new alike.
Last season, Greece’s Sotirios Koutoupas took down the EPT Main Event for a life-changing €614,000 in prize money. The event posted big numbers, attracting 671 players to the Casino de Deauville, and generated a €3,220,800 prize pool.
In Season 11, the event will again be taking place in the spacious tournament area located in an annexe of Casino Barriere at The Deauville International Centre - located right on Deauville's beautiful beach and close to the town's premier hotels, shops, bars and restaurants.
