PokerStars announced December 1 its schedule for the 2023 European Poker Tour season, which includes the return of many locations and two brand-new stops on the tour.
The 2023 European Poker Tour kicks off in February with EPT Paris at the Hyatt Regency Paris Etoile, in partnership with Le Club Barrière Paris from February 15 to 26.
Online satellites for Paris will go live on December 1, giving players the opportunity to win their way to the tour. This includes an EUR 5,300 buy-in for the Paris Main Event and 8 nights’ accommodation at the luxury event location.
The next stop brings “the glitz and glamour of Monte-Carlo” with a Spring Tour to Monaco. From April 26 to May 6, players will head to the Monte-Carlo Casino for two weeks “of the best poker action.”
PokerStars players can again mark their calendars this August and December with EPT Barcelona and EPT Prague. EPT Barcelona will run from August 21 to September 3 in Casino Barcelona and PokerStars will round out the year with EPT Prague from December 6 to 17.
From October 11 to 22, PokerStars players will experience the new location of the Merit Royal Diamond Hotel & Casino & Spa as Cyprus is added to the roster for 2023.
“PokerStars is excited to announce this brand-new location on the EPT and looks forward to bringing the biggest prize pools and most prestigious titles to the Mediterranean,” the company wrote in a press release.
Cedric Billot, Head of Global Live Event Operations, said: “We’re incredibly excited to announce our schedule for The European Poker Tour 2023. The schedule includes our players’ firm favorites, the first time in the glamorous French capital and another exciting new addition to the tour.”
“Cyprus is the perfect location to add to our schedule and we look forward to bringing all that an EPT has to offer to this new location. We will continue to improve the player experience both for online qualifications and at our live events,” he added.
