The Eureka Poker Tour touches down in Latvia next month, satellite in now

ps_news_thn.jpgThere are many reasons to go to Latvia - beautiful landscapes, fascinating history, cheap bars - but we've just come up with the best. Eureka Poker Tour Latvia, ladies and gentlemen, touches down in the capital Riga next month for seven days of poker action (1-7 October) crowned by a €1,100 main event.

Satellites are running now for €1,100 seat only and €1,800 packages which you can win your way through to from as little as 50FPP or €0.10. Online satellites will also be running for the €2,000 High Roller event (2-3 October) on PokerStars which can be found on the lobby at Events >> More >> Eureka.

Will you follow in Eureka Bulgaria champ Petar Zografov's footsteps?

They'll be plenty of side events, cash games and, of course, one of the fantastic Eureka Players parties. You can see the full Eureka Poker Tour Latvia tournament schedule here. The more you play, the better the chance you have to be crowned as Eureka Season 2 leader board winner, more details about which can be found here.

To keep up to date with regular updates you can follow the Eureka Twitter account, join the facebook group, or visit the Eureka Poker Tour website. And stay away from the Riga Black Balsam. It's a traditional Latvian herbal liqueur and tastes very interesting.
