Posted on January 19, 2010 by John Trevors for Luckyroom.com
Tomorrow (January 20th, 2010) the 7th round of the European Poker Tournament starts for this season. The venue will be held at Casino Barriere de Deauville France and the buy-in for the main event is €5,000 + €300. The EPT event which carries a long history was of course also carried out last year with a huge success of 645 players participating on the main event. After 4 days of high level action poker, online pro Moritz Kranich won the first prize winner taking home €851,400 after eliminating all his opponents last year.
In addition to the EPT main event there are two others that are worth mentioning. First and best the High Rollers event where the buy-in is €20,000 + €300; and the Ladies Only No Limit Poker tournament where the buy-in is €200 + €20; Both events run parallel with the PokerStars EPT.
Players start with 30,000 in chips and first blind level is 50 / 100. The first level will last for 1 hour while all the rest last for a total of 75 minutes. On the fifth level the blinds go up to 150 / 300 and the ante goes to 25. In the final level the ante will be 20,000 while the blinds will have reached the 100,000 / 200,000. The EPT at Deauville has a limit of 700 participants and the people who organized the tournament have stated that they are expecting this number to be reached with ease. All major online poker rooms have been offering satellites for the main event that include the buy-in plus accommodation and traveling expenses which is an additional contributing factor expected to raise numbers and action in total.
Five more EPT events are scheduled for this season. Next stop is at Copenhagen at February 16th; next the EPT travels to Berlin and then to Saalbach – Hinterglemm. During April EPT will be held at San Remo while the 6th season ends at the glamorous Monte Carlo at Monaco.
