A digital version of the European Poker Tour takes place in November with a $5 million guaranteed Main Event.
We have already had a World Series of Poker Online and a World Poker Tour Online, it is actually amazing it has taken until November but now we will also have a European Poker Tour Online.
Taking place from November 8 to 18 at PokerStars, it will feature 20 tournaments with $20 million guaranteed.
The schedule is meant to mimic a standard EPT live schedule with side events including Super High Roller events. The biggest buy-in will be a $25,000 event with a $2 million guarantee, while the $5,200 Main Event has a $5 million guarantee.
The key events will be streamed on Twitch, it appears much in the way that the PokerStars Stadiums Championship was covered. PokerStars have also said that they will be giving away thousands of free tickets to qualify for all these events, with an announcement coming soon on specific promotions. Each event will come with it an EPT Trophy.
EPT Mini Festival
Because this is obviously a festival for the high rollers, alongside it PokerStars are hosting a Mini-EPT alongside it with the same events at 1/00th the price.
More details will be announced soon as well as a separate festival for players in France, Spain, Portugal and Italy from November 22.
So there you have it, it was technically possible for somebody to win the Triple Crown in 2020 without leaving their house.
Stay tuned to PokerStrategy.com this week as we will have an exclusive opportunity to win a seat to the Main Event.
