European Poker Tour (EPT) Announces Surprise Season Six Stop
With the European Poker Tour finally unveiling their much-anticipated schedule for the second-half of Season Six, a surprise snow-bound stop-off provided the perfect early Christmas present for poker fans.
Having already taken in the cities of Kyiv, Barcelona, London and Warsaw so far in this year’s tour, the EPT have now revealed that come the New Year, a brand new event in the Austrian Alps will feature.
The latest stop on the tour, dubbed EPT Snowfest, will take place in Saalbach Hinterglem, Austria’s Alpine Palace, from 21-26 March and promises to be much more than just a conventional poker tournament.
Alongside the €3,500 NLHE Main Event, EPT Snowfest looks set to include a number of skiing and snowboarding activities in the winter wonderland, meaning there’ll be plenty of opportunity for players to stretch their legs away from the tables.
The second half of the Season Six schedule also includes the more traditional stops of Deauville, Copenhagen, Dortmund, San Remo as well as the now customary end-of-season showpiece, the EPT Grand Final, in Monte Carlo.
However, long before EPT players start concerning themselves with their travel arrangements for 2010, all eyes will turn to Portugal later this month as the EPT Vilamoura kicks off from 17-22 November.
