PokerStars has unveiled the full schedule for the 2024 European Poker Tour (EPT) season, which shows five destinations, including a return to EPT Paris and EPT Cyprus. Both Paris and Cyprus made their EPT debut in 2023, and they return for 2024, much to the delight of the players.
EPT Paris is the first stop of the 2024 European Poker Tour season. It takes place between February 14-25 at a new venue. The stunning Le Palais des Congres has a 120-table capacity, meaning there will be a more extensive schedule for the festival. Cedric Billot, Associate Director for Live Events and Operations, believes the new-look EPT Paris could be one of the largest EPT festivals on record.
“After last year’s EPT Paris, we really listened to player’ feedback, and we looked at how to improve the players’ experience and capacity for this event, which has the potential to be one of the largest EPT festivals ever. A new and larger venue, improvements on the registrations, more tables…we hope to welcome as many players as possible in 2024 in Paris.”
Online satellites and Power Path for EPT Paris launched in the PokerStars lobby on November 21, giving PokerStars players a cut-price route to the festival. There are three different Power Path passes available:
|Gold Pass||EPT Paris Main Event entry plus eight nights’ accommodation|
|Silver Pass||EPT Paris Main Event entry, FPS Paris Main Event entry, and FPS Paris Cup entry|
|Bronze Pass||FPS Main Event entry, and FPS Paris Cup entry|
The remaining value of each pass will be credited as expenses, limited edition merchandise, live event liason, and exclusive EPT Pairs activities.
