EPT LONDON

London

The award-winning EPT London Poker Festival returns this autumn, running from October 8-18 at the spectacular Grand Connaught Rooms in Covent Garden; the heart of London.

Last season it was Swedish superstar Robin Ylitalo who took down the EPT Main Event, playing through a field of 604 players to scoop a first place prize of £560,000. German pro Martin Finger was victorious in the Super High Roller, taking home £821,000 in cash. In total, over £10,000,000 was awarded in prize money and it’s no surprise the event was awarded ‘Best UK Tournament’ at the 2013 British Poker Awards.

Season 11's London stop will again be an extravaganza of poker, with a variety of events including the £4,000 + £250 Main Event and the £10,000 High Roller. EPT London also features the Grand Final of the PokerStars UK & Ireland Poker Tour Season 4, highlighted by the £1,000 + £100 Main Event.
