PokerStars seeks high-rollers

ept-thumb-promo.jpgThe European Poker Tour has long been home to high-rollers. The Grand Final buy-in of the tournament series is impressive in itself at €10,000. The rest of the events are nearly as big. However, we always knew there were people in the room who wanted to play bigger. After the tournament was over for the day, the big players would start up big-money sit & go tournaments.

If that wasn't enough, the true high rollers would retire to a hotel suite and play private games for more money than most people can imagine.

Now the European Poker Tour has given these high-rollers a tournament of their own.

When the Season 5 EPT London event kicks off in a few months, event organizers will not only host the scheduled EPT London event. They have also just announced a brand new £20,000 + £300 PokerStars EPT £1 Million Showdown, with a guaranteed £1,000,000 prize pool. If that doesn't attract the big action players, not much will.

That's not all. The London EPT event is getting a shot in the arm and the winner of the event is going to be pretty happy about it.

PokerStars is adding an extra £250,000 to the prize pool of this October’s EPT London event, making for a guaranteed £1,000,000 for the winner.
