EPT on the brink of a milestone

26 August 2013

ONCHAN, Isle of Man (PRESS RELEASE) -- As the European Poker Tour gears up for the start of its 10th season in Barcelona next week, EPT President Edgar Stuchly revealed today that the EPT is on the brink of a major milestone. The tour has paid out almost half a billion euros (€499,908,225) in tournament prizes to players in just nine years.

The world's richest poker tour began in 2004 with a 229-player event in Casino de Barcelona, which was won by Swedish player Alex Stevic for €80,000. Since that first event, the EPT has visited 16 countries and hosted 1,095 events. It has also been played by 111,389 players from 100 countries around the world, proving that the European Poker Tour truly has international appeal.
