Season 11 of the EPT will bow out in style, as players from across the world come together for the PokerStars and Monte-Carlo®Casino European Poker Tour Grand Final! This star-studded event will take place in Monaco, one of Europe’s most glamorous and exciting destinations, and promises an unforgettable poker experience. The EPT festival will run April 29-May 8, 2015.
In Season 10’s curtain-closer in Monaco, Antonio Buonanno needed a record 310 hands to beat British challenger Jack Salter heads-up in the Main Event. His efforts earned the former clothing retailer from Naples a massive €1,240,000 in prize money. Seven of last season’s finalists were PokerStars qualifiers who had invested just €1,700 between them, but took home over €2.7 million.
Join us in 2015 and enjoy a full schedule of exciting events including the €10,600 buy-in Main Event, the €100k Super High Roller, the €25k High Roller and the €1k FPS Monaco Main Event.
