PokerStars EPT announces surprise stop in full schedule

November 04, 2009


It was only a matter of time before the PokerStars European Poker Tour released the second half of its Season 6 schedule, and now that we’ve seen it, we don’t mind having waited.

As of this time yesterday, you knew the EPT had been to Kyiv, Barcelona, London and Warsaw, and you knew it had planned stops in Vilamoura, Prague, and the Bahamas. The first half of the schedule was pretty exciting on its own, so there were no complaints there.

Now, we’ve seen the second half of the line-up, and we could write a thousand words about it. Instead, we’ll just offer this picture.


Indeed, folks. You’re looking at the Alps and the newest stop on the European Poker Tour.

In the schedule released this morning, the EPT has announced a brand new event: EPT Snowfest. This looks to be more than just a poker tournament. It’s going to be a ski vacation in one of the most beautiful parts of the world. Saalbach-Hinterglemm, Austria’s Alpine Palace will host the €3,500 Main Event March 21st – 26th, 2010.

That is just one of six tour stops announced in the final Season 6 schedule. In addition to EPT Snowfest, the European Poker Tour is headed back to all the places you have come to expect.

Here’s the remainder of the schedule.

January 20th – 25th: EPT Deauville
February 16th – 21st: EPT Copenhagen
March 2nd-7th — EPT Germany
March 21st – 26th — EPT Snowfest
April 15th – 21st — EPT San Remo
April 25th -30th — EPT Monte Carlo
