Details released for the PokerStars and MONTE-CARLO®CASINO EPT Grand Final
We realise that EPT Deauville hasn't even finished yet, but figured that while they reached the final stages in Normandy it was as good a time as any to look ahead to what else is in store for the rest of the season. For while it might only be February, which in these parts you're reminded of every time you step out the door, before you know it Spring will be upon us and the 11th season of the Tour will be drawing to a close.
Now we can tell you how that ending will look, with full details of the PokerStars and Monte-Carlo®Casino EPT Grand Final released today.
With the biggest EPT to date on the horizon set for Malta, PokerStars is already thinking even bigger with the release of the EPT Grand Final schedule, with 77 reasons not to go outside for the sights or sunshine.
Let's start at the top.
Obviously the Main Event gets top billing, with a €10,000+€600 buy in. Meanwhile the €100,000 Super High Roller will provide the usual distractions.
But it's not all about the big events. The PokerStars and Monte-Carlo®Casino EPT Grand Final festival will have something for everyone, such as a seniors event, a juniors event, a new-look Women's event with a €200 buy-in, as well as a few shall we say "niche" events, which should keep those who like deuces wild, ante-only contests, or who like to be given lots of chocolate simply for playing.
On top of that there will be the usual array of satellites, and side events to fill what should be a memorable end to another great season on the Tour.
