European Poker Tour

European Poker Tour (EPT)



The European Poker Tour (EPT) is a series of Poker Tournaments sponsored and owned by PokerStars. The EPT began in 2004 and is also broadcasted on television across Europe by Tinopolis plc, an independent television broadcasting company. The EPT’s current television host is Michelle Orpe, a professional T.V presenter.

Tournament Format

Almost all the games in the European Poker Tour (EPT) are No-Limit Texas Holdem Poker games.


In the first three seasons, the EPT had a Buy-in of US$5000 i.e. half the size of the games at the World Poker Tour (WPT). In season 4, due to increasing popularity, the Buy-in was increased to US$8000. While in the subsequent EPT seasons, the Buy-in was further increased to almost US$10,000 that is equal to Buy-in for most WPT events. Moreover, the final table of EPT is made up of 8 players, as opposed to WPT’s 6 players final table.

Main Event

The inaugural event of season 8 of the European Poker Tour (EPT) was held in Tallinn, the capital of Estonia, Europe. It took place between 2-7 Aug, 2011 and a total of 282 players registered to play the Main Event. The 1st Champion of EPT Season 8 was Switzerland’s Ronny Kaiser who finished the game in approximately 4 and a half hours. He bagged the title as well as €275,000 cash prize.

Testimonials From Our Players

poker player testimonial

I am a late entrant into poker world and at 43 years of age, double the age of a lot of players on the tourney circuit. I am a Private Equity Fund Manager and poker is a passion for me!! I have now been playing for over 4 years now - both cash and tournament games. My background in investing made me adapt to the game fast. The approach of studying the game through books, courses (Nick Petrangelo, raiseyouredge) online videos and bit of coaching from Prabhat Mukherjea.. all played a part in preparing me for this. This win is a testimony that poker is not gambling and hard work pays off.

I am extremely happy at winning the ATOC ME. it is apt that my first big tournament win comes on adda52 where I started my poker journey about 4 years back.
