EPT Prague 2008

by Poker Team

The European Poker Tour (EPT) hosted by online poker room PokerStars, hits the Czech Republic this December when players from around the world compete in the EPT Prague or EPT Praha. Last year, in the 4th season of the EPT, 555 players entered the Czech capital and made it one of the most exciting European Tour events in the history of the tournament. An enthusiastic and vocal crowd cheered Arnaud Mattern to the win and a €700,000 first place payout. Other notable players present at last year’s EPT Prague included, Luca Pagano, Dario Minieri and PCA Champion Bertrand “ElkY” Grospellier. This year should be even more exciting.
