EPT London – high roller heaven


Last Season, the EPT’s London stop played host to several novelties. The prize-pool, which was boosted by PokerStars through added money, reached one million pounds for the first time. It did take a GBP 250,000 addition to round it up, but PokerStars was eager to provide the money. For the first time in the history of the EPT, a high rollers event was also held and it too yielded a GBP 1 million prize pool.
596 players registered for the Main Event of the London stop, out of which over 110 were online qualifiers who had won their seats through PokerStars. The GBP 1 million showdown (the high roller event) only attracted 86 players, who all contributed GBP 20k to combine for the giant prize-pool.

The Main Event victory went to Michael Martin, who came from behind to take the first prize. The GBP 1 Million Showdown attracted a very select field of top professionals of whom Jason Mercier rose to victory.
This year’s EPT London will take place in the Hilton London Metropole. The Main Event will feature a buy in of GBP 5,000+GBP 250. There will be plenty of side events again, including the GBP 20,000 + GBP 500 high roller event. The Main Event will stretch over 3 days, but players will also get the chance to raise money playing in the Ladies Only event, in the PLO Freezeout event, in the NL 6-max event and many others Registering for the EPT London Main Event is possible live on the scene and through PokerStars. As long as you’re at PokerStars though, you may as well try to earn your seat through one of the online qualifiers that are being offered, and pay much less for it this way. Through PokerStars’ online qualifiers, you can make your way into the Main Event for small change.
