Share this
The culmination of the PokerStars.com European Poker Tour into the Grand Final in Monte Carlo, Monaco is a spectacular European event that you don’t want to miss! Why? Because this year’s season six is staged to be bigger and better than ever before featuring an action-packed schedule of exciting events with huge prize pools!

The much anticipated grand final live poker event will soon decide the next Champion who will walk away with a huge payday. Last season, the record-breaking, six-day event paid out a total prize pool of a whopping €9.35 million, making the EPT the richest poker tournament ever held outside Las Vegas. Among the legends who joined the battle last year were Team PokerStars PRO Daniel Negreanu, world champion Peter Eastgate, and former world champions Joe Hachem, Greg Raymer and Chris Moneymaker, as well as many more. But at the end of the event, it was Pieter de Korver, a member of Team PokerStars PRO Netherlands, who reigned victorious as the Grand Final Champion.  Taking home a tidy sum of €2.3million, Pieter worked hard for his win by besting a field of 935 players including some of the best poker pros in the world, as well as 157 PokerStars players who won their seats online.

Also on the agenda for season five was the inaugural Ante Up For Africa event in Europe that featured a number of international celebrities with Isabelle Mercier taking down the top spot.  That was also the year that the first ever €25,000 EPT Monte Carlo high roller tournament was held with Team PokerStars PRO Vanessa Rousso walking away with €720,000 for her first place win.

The European Poker Tour Monte Carlo will be taking place from April 25th through the-30th at the lavish Monte Carlo Bay Hotel and Resort and you can be among the pros and celebrities at the tables. In addition, the High Roller Bounty Shootout event, the daily ‘Battleship’ tournaments and the Ladies Only event will also once again be taking place in Monte Carlo along with the €10,600 Main Event. And that’s not all, because the EPT Season Six Awards will also return and will take place during the PokerStars Player Party after the April 30th Final! Awards will be presented for the categories of EPT Player of The Year, EPT Mixed Games Player, EPT Omaha Player, Best EPT Country, and EPT Season Six Best Online Qualifiers.

The good news is you still have time to play at PokerStars to win your EPT Monta Carlo package worth €13,500 that will include your tournament buy-in, luxury accommodations and spending money through the PokerStars satellites starting for only €5.45 or 100 frequent player points!
