Showdown Poker Tour

Share this
Showdown Poker Tour's aim is to create a new poker tour truly for the players. It's all about being independent, more 'down to earth', having better venues and giving away bigger prizes. The Showdown Poker Tour includes both well established and brand new poker venues across Europe. Furthermore, they seem to do as much as possible to make this event as good as the WSOP or the WPT. Showdown Poker Tour has teamed up with a well known tournament director, this alone enhances the excitement and action of seven amazing events.

Showdown Poker Tour is proud to announce that it will start in the Gutshot Card Club in England on May 3rd and will continue the tour across Europe up to late November. Each Showdown Poker Tour tournament has a limited number of seats, which vary from 200 up to 300. Tournament buy-ins range from € 5,000 up to € 10, 000.


The ShowDown Poker Tour has announced six amazing tournaments across Europe and a Grand Final, which will make the tour larger than any known poker tour in Europe. The Grand Final will be held in Hamburg (Germany) with a buy-in of €10.000 giving an estimated prize pool of €3 million. The winner will walk away with an estimated €1 million and the ShowDown Poker Tour champion's title.

All the final tables will be televised and broadcast on TV-stations across the whole of Europe, so stay tuned for more than sixteen hours of poker on TV. The TV production team behind the ShowDown Poker Tour is from the Scandinavian production companies – TV 2 FILM & TV and East Production.
