It’s been three years since the EPT visited Vienna and many will agree a return trip is long overdue! EPT Vienna will be the sixth event of Season 10 and is taking place in the spectacular Hofburg Palace, the city’s former imperial residence, from March 19-29, 2014.
Located on the banks of the famous Danube river, Vienna perfectly combines the present and the past. Often described as the cultural capital of Europe, Austria's capital was once home to Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert and Johann Strauss but is now the location for numerous lively bars, restaurants, cafes and clubs. Come March, the city will also be home to some of the best poker players in the world including numerous members of Team PokerStars Pro.
The EPT’s last event in Vienna was in Season 7 when German student Michael Eiler defeated a 587-strong field - including Team PokerStars Pro Daniel Negreanu on the final table - to seize the title, trophy and €700,000 first prize.
Partnering with the EPT is the Concord Card Casino, one of the most well-known and respected poker casino brands in Europe. Please click here for information on satellites running across many of the Concord properties in Austria in the lead-up to EPT Vienna.
