EPT Season 10

With Season 9 in the books and with valuable lessons learned from the changes introduced at the beginning of the previous season, the EPT’s 10th season will feature further tweaks to its schedule which aren’t particularly significant, but which are all aimed towards improving the EPT experience for players. The first stop of Season 10 is the Barcelona one, there are no surprises in this respect.

Always popular and successful, Barcelona has proved to be the perfect opener last season too. Obviously, organizers are looking to break all attendance records this season in Barcelona.
Regarding the changes made at the beginning of Season 9: the truth is that through 8 previous seasons, the organizers have accumulated enough experience to make all the right moves and all the changes turned out to be so successful, so they will pretty much all make it into Season 10 too.

There will be one significant change in the Season 10 schedule, and that’s about moving the San Remo stop back right in front of the Monaco Grand Final.
Player feedback had a lot to do with this change: according to EPT President Edgar Stuchly, besides simplifying the schedule and incorporating various national poker tours into the EPT stops, officials spent Season 9 going through a bevy of player feedback, which suggested that most players were looking to play more and travel less.
By re-inserting the San Remo stop in front of the Monte Carlo Grand Final, officials will allow players to spend the entire month of April on the beautiful Riviera.

This Season, the Barcelona event will be followed by the London one which kicks off on October 2, then Prague and then the PCA, which will once again whisk players away from the clutches of the Northern Hemisphere winter, to kick off the New Poker Year in a tropical paradise.

Deauville will follow towards the end of January, followed in turn by Berlin in March and Sanremo in April. The Season will wrap up on May 2, in Monte Carlo, when the final stop ends.

Besides reducing the schedule from 13 to 8 stops, Season 9 has also gotten a bunch of national and regional poker tours on board, like the UK and Ireland Poker Tour and the Estrellas Poker Tour. That strategy will continue in Season 10.
Season 9 saw the introduction of high roller events at every stop. Season 10 will build on that success, and thus €/£ 10k events will take place in London, Prague, Barcelona, Deauville, Berlin and Sanremo, plus the Barcelona and London stops will feature €/£ 50k Super High Rollers as well.

The PokerStars Caribbean Adventure and the Monaco Grand Final will have a $/€ 25k “regular” high roller each, in addition to $/€ 100k Super High Rollers.

Obviously, online qualification for the EPT Season 10 stops will be possible through PokerStars, and indeed, those who are not looking to pay out massive amounts of money for their Season 10 EPT seats, should focus on this –potentially much more lucrative –route.
