EPT Deauville 2009

by Poker Team

After two years of being left off the schedule, the 5th season of the European Poker Tour is set to return to the scene of a very intriguing event from 4 years ago. Back during the EPT’s inaugural season the final two seats at the EPT Deauville were occupied by two Americans, Carl Olsen and Brandon Schaefer, who were not only from the same country, but were neighbors from the same town, living just blocks from one another. Scheafer outlasted his friend to capture the title and event organizers are hopeful for another successful event.

When is the EPT Deauville?

The event will run from January 20-24, 2009 and will take place at the Casino Barriere, Deauville France.
