Eureka4 Vienna: Season 4 begins in the Austrian capital!

Hello and welcome to the first ever Eureka Poker Tour event in Vienna! The Austrian capital is the scene for the start of Season 4 which also sees events happening later this year in Rozvadov and a return to Prague where Eureka held its biggest ever event. With the European Poker Tour Main Event starting on Sunday, 23rd March, there's no doubt that Vienna is currently the place to be for all things poker.

Just over three months ago, Dimitri Holdeew won the final event of Season 3 taking home €226,400 after beating the largest ever field for a Eureka Poker Tour event as 1,315 players stumped up €1,100 for a chance at glory. Tournament director Thomas Lamatsch is optimistic about how Vienna will compare, telling us, "We have had more online qualifiers and buy-ins than in Prague." At the moment, there is still a steady stream of players currently going through the registration area, all of whom are hoping to become the first ever Eureka Vienna champion.
