PokerStars’ sneak preview of the EPT Grand Final (vids)

Monte Carlo port

You don’t need to be a poker professional or even a regular at the online tables to assume that winning the European Poker Tour Grand Final is a tremendous achievement. If you had any doubts that Monte Carlo is the place to be in late April, this short video will provide you with all the reasons you need to include this poker tournament in your schedule.

The partnership between EPT and PokerStars is mutually beneficial, with boosted payouts and a higher number of poker professionals attending the tournament. This represents the grand finale for a long season that includes some of the most popular poker destinations in Europe. Monaco was chosen as a gracious host for this tournament which will kick off on April 23 and conclude 10 days later.

In exactly 63 seconds, the video highlights the exclusive nature of the European Poker Tour Grand Final, in terms of both location and select company. Players from all over the world book a flight for Monte Carlo and attend this remarkable festival of poker, competing in both the main tournament and side events

The EPT is an eclectic mix of high-class poker, entertainment and also an excellent opportunity to meet and chat with multiple World Series of Poker bracelet winners. Those who can afford to pay the €10,600 buy-in for the Main Event can hope to replicate Steve O’Dwyer’s performance, as he won €1.2 million last season. The side events are nothing to frown upon and every year poker professionals and amateurs alike compete at cash games while waiting for certain tournaments to kick off.

It’s surprising how a video no longer than 1 minute can stir up such enthusiasm among poker players, but this compilation brilliantly succeeds in hyping up the European Poker Tour Grand Final. Write down 40 Avenue Princess Grace, because this is the address of the Monte Carlo Bay Hotel & Resort, the place to be seven months from now!
