EPT Berlin makes it easier to buy in
Remember the days when, if you wanted to go see a concert, you had to go stand in line or even camp out overnight to get tickets? These days, standing in line is passé. When you want tickets, you sit at your computer and pound on the keys until you have the seats you want.
Now, remember the days when you had to go down to a casino to buy into a tournament? Well, as far as EPT Berlin is concerned, those days are now a thing of the past, too.
PokerStars and Spielbank Berlin just inked a deal with Hekticket, one of Germany's leading online ticket sites. Now, anyone who wants to buy in can do so online with their credit card or a bank wire.
That lady right there is Sandra Naujoks, the last big winner in Germany. Shortly after becoming a member of Team PokerStars Pro, she won EPT Dortmund during Season 5.
Now it's on to Berlin where the EPT expects to host the biggest professional poker tournament ever held in Germany. The event will run March 2-7, 2010. Somewhere in the neighborhood of 1,000 players are expected to show up, including 120 people who qualified on PokerStars.

We'll see you in Germany.
