Monte Carlo and Daniel Craig in my dreams
When I think of Monte Carlo I think of Daniel Craig in that black tuxedo from Casino Royale. He looks so right sitting across from me at a poker table there. I think of glittering casinos and the rich and famous people who go there. I think of the fortunes won in the poker room and all of the decadent and luxurious trappings of wealth that come with them. In short, I think of one of the richest and most opulent cities in the world and as part of that fantasy I always think of a high stakes poker game where I am a central player. For me, unfortunately it's just part of a poker writer's fantasy. (We can dream, right?) But for many of you it will become a reality within the next couple of months as the PokerStars and Monte-Carlo®Casino European Poker Tour Grand Final returns to Monaco. The tournament to be held there this spring is as rich and glittering as the city itself and offers any kind of variation on the rich and famous fantasy you can dream up.
The PokerStars Women Live event will be held in Monte Carlo as part of the EPT Grand Final, and is scheduled for April 29-May 3. The tournament will take place at the Monte Carlo Bay Hotel and Casino and the package includes the €1000+100 buy-in, hotel accommodations for three nights, and €500 for expenses, for a package totaling €2500.
The PokerStars Women Live event will offer some of the best poker competition to be found anywhere with Team Pros and tournament regulars competing alongside satellite winners from around the world. Satellites will be starting soon so be sure to check the PokerStars Women home page for details as they become available. For more information see the PokerStars EPT Grand Final page.
