EPT Season 7

Europe’s richest and most popular live tournament series, the EPT (European Poker Tour) will be back for its 7th season, and PokerStars has already nailed down the schedule for this latest installment. With the WPT barely struggling along, the EPT has grown into not just Europe’s, but the World’s largest poker tour, featuring high buy-in Main Events and a whole bunch of live and online opportunities to qualify for these events for much less. As it’s become standard MO for the tour in recent years, a new stop has been added for Season 7 too. Tallinn, Estonia will be the scene of this year’s special stop and players will be able to get a quick sample of Nordic hospitality right away as it’s been set as the first event of the Season 7 series.

While most of the EPT’s stops are held in the winter (winter on the northern hemisphere that is), the Tallinn stop stands out: it’ll take place on august 11th-16th, at the Swissotel in the middle of the town. The Main Event will feature a €4,250 buy-in and satellites are already running for it at PokerStars, for those who wish to grab a seat for much less.

How do you qualify online?

Just download the PokerStars software, click the Events tab and then go to EPT. You’ll be able to select a satellite to your liking there. For further instructions on how to qualify online, check out our How to Qualify page.

As a matter of fact, satellites are already running for the second stop of the tour too, the Vilamoura one, which takes place on Aug 28th – Sept 2nd.
As always, the PCA (Pokerstars Caribbean Adventure) will be a rather interesting speck of color on the schedule. The PCA events will take place on the Bahamas, and PokerStars expects to see more than 2,000 players belly up to the tables of the $10,000+$300 Main event. Why don’t you follow Darren Keys’ example from last year and turn your 75 PokerStars FPPs into a $150k prize at the PCA?
