EPT11 Deauville: Every player's new best friend

You play a full day and you're buzzing from how well you played. What's more you're still pumped and excited to be coming back with chips. Now is not the time to relax or sleep, even if it were possible. Your mind is still at work and you're already looking ahead to the next day's play. You want to know the names of those you'll be playing against, whether you've ever heard of them, and whether they're any good.

Here's where the EPT app can become a player's best friend.

If you haven't already downloaded the EPT app, now would be a good time. If you're a follower of the tour you might already have discovered how it adds to your experience as a spectator, with all the latest news from the tournament floor sent direct to your mobile device. But as a player there are other features that can help you on your way to EPT success, namely seat draws.


No more scouring the internet looking for link, or finding out who your opponents will be as you arrive minutes before play restarts and surreptitiously googling the guy in the five seat. It's all there for you to scroll through at your leisure. What's more this information will be made available as soon as possible after play finishes, giving you plenty of time to prepare.

And the app isn't just for the Main Event. Whichever event you're playing during an EPT festival, you'll find your seat draw.

Downloading the app is simple. Simply got to the iTunes or Google Play stores today and search for the term "EPT guide" to download the app. It's available on Android and iPhone and it's completely free. Not bad when the rewards could prove enormous.

While it might tell you the name of that guy in the five seat, it won't tell you if he's any good. That's still on you.

Coverage from the Main Event of EPT Deauville is on the Main Event page. And you can follow the action from Australia on the Aussie Millions page.
