About the EPT

Started in 2004, The EPT (European Poker Tour) is a series televised poker tournaments for European players that takes place every year.  The EPT was launched in 2004 by John Duth (winner of the Poker Million) as part of expansion from the WPT and it is also partially owned by PokerStars.  Not quite as big or popular as the WPT however, the EPT’s average tournament buy-in was only half of that from the WPT.  This changed in the 4th series however, when the average tournament buy-in was increased to $10,000 (similar to the WSOP events).  Professional poker players such as Greg Raymer, Daniel Negreanue and Vicky Coren have frequently commentated and provided TV studio analysis for the event. 

The majority of past EPT events have taken place in Monte Carlo with average winner’s prizes of $1 milllion to $3 million.  To date, USA have won the EPT the most time (11) followed by England (10) and then Germany and France (5).
