Changes Made To European Poker Tour London And Berlin

European Poker Tour London Moves Home; Berlin Sees Change Of Date


Season 8 EPT London Champion Benny SpindlerThis season of the PokerStars European Poker Tour (EPT) will see a couple of changes; the London stop has found a new home, and there has been a change of date for EPT Berlin.

Firstly, EPT London will take place next spring, Mar. 6-16, at The Landmark Hotel. Originally one of the nineteenth century’s great railway hotels, the new location will house players for the £5,250 main event (Mar. 10-16), while the Grosvenor Victoria Casino will act as host for a selection of the Tour’s side events and cash games.

The casino is in walking distance of the prestigious five-star hotel.

Secondly, the EPT has announced that it has changed the dates for its Berlin festival to facilitate players wanting to hop from stop to stop. Originally, Berlin was scheduled for Apr. 24 to May 4, but in order to squeeze in the Italian Poker Tour (IPT) San Remo between the EPT German leg and the final in Monte Carlo, the date has been pulled back to Apr. 17.

Berlin festivities will end on Apr. 27 with the main event champion crowned and then those on the road can truck along towards the IPT San Remo, which will run from Apr. 28 to May 7.

The EPT Grand Final will play out from May 6 to 15 in Monaco, with the main event running from May 6-12.
