The EPT is back!
The European Poker Tour (EPT) is Europe’s biggest and most prestigious poker tour.
Last year it was rebranded to PokerStars Championship, but the players were not amused and sinking numbers forced PokerStars to undo the rebranding and bring the EPT back.
In 2018 the EPT is returning to four of Europe’s most glamourous locations: Sochi, Monte Carlo, Barcelona and Prague.
Its first stop took place in the wonderful Sochi Casino, which will also host several big Partypoker Events this year such as the WSOPC and the Partypoker MILLIONS Russia.
