EPT Revisiting High-Stakes Action

EPT Revisiting High-Stakes Action

Tuesday, 8 April 2014

The final of this year's European Poker Tour (EPT) will once again host a high-stakes showdown to be dubbed the Million Euro Cash Game.

Set-up in the same way as last season in order to give players and spectators another layer of entertainment, the game is expected to feature a slew of big name players.

In 2013, the EPT hosted its first high-stakes cash game with a buy-in above €250,000 and this proved extremely popular with fans thanks to some huge pots and a live stream.

In an effort to continue this success, the organisers have decided to do it all again this season and have already confirmed the participation of a number of pros including Isaac Haxton, Paul Newey, Alec Torelli and Daniel Alaei.

The minimum buy-in will once again be set at €250,000 while the blinds will start at €500/€1,000 although this may be increased following player consent. Another interesting feature of the game is that it will feature no buy-in restrictions, which means we could see some players sitting down with well in excess of €1 million.

Being dubbed the ‘jewel in the crown’ of the EPT Grand Final in Monte Carlo, the Million Euro Cash Game will run from April 23 to May 2 with a live stream set to be available from 10pm until 2am on April 24.
