Eureka Poker Tour headed for Hamburg

Look back some 50 years to a time when somebody stood in a little club in Hamburg and first saw John, Paul, George, and Ringo belt out a song. That person must have thought something akin to "Eureka!" (Although, being fair here, the words were probably a little more profane and beer-soaked).

Now, the people of Hamburg will be screaming Eureka again as the poker tour of the same name makes its maiden voyage to Germany's second-largest city.

Fresh off a successful Season 5 opening in Rozvadov, the Eureka tour has planned a huge festival of poker from May 22-31, 2015 at the Spielbank Schenefeld. Its €1,100 Main Event will run May 23-31. The 14-event schedule also boasts the popular €2,200 High Roller May 25-26. Hamburg will also host the inaugural €330 Hamburg Cup May 28-31. Cash game players will have a full slate of games waiting for them for the hours they aren't playing tournaments.


If it's a tournament in Germany, you can expect the country's most famous poker players. Team PokerStars Pros Jan Heitmann and George Danzer, and Friend of PokerStars, Natalie Hof are expected to play.

Satellites to the €1,100 Main Event kick off this weekend on PokerStars. You will find them listed under the 'Live Events' / 'EUROPE' tab in the game lobby.
