The PokerStars European Poker Tour (EPT) will stop in Prague in December, and PokerNews’ live reporting crew will be on the ground throughout the festival, relating all of the action from the schedule’s most renowned events.
Prague has always been one of the most popular EPT stops, and its popularity has risen when the EPT Prague tournaments were combined with the Eureka Poker Tour. Each EPT Prague Main Event has drawn more over 1,000 entrants since 2013, with a record 1,190 players showing up the last time the EPT visited the gorgeous Czech city.
The 2022 EPT Prague runs from December 7 to 18, with a whopping 53 numbered events jammed into the hectic schedule. PokerNews has exclusive coverage of eleven of those tournaments, including a trio of €25,000 buy-in events, the €50,000 EPT Super High Roller, and, of course, the €5,300 EPT Prague Main Event.
