PokerStars and Monte-Carlo®Casino European Poker Tour Grand Final

Season 10 of poker’s biggest, richest, and grandest poker tour will draw to a close in stunning fashion from April 26-May 2, as a star-studded cast make their way to Monaco for the PokerStars and Monte-Carlo®Casino European Poker Tour Grand Final!

It’s one of the greatest live tournaments of the year, held in one of the world’s most picturesque locations. And if it’s anything like last year’s festival, you don’t want to miss it.

The 2013 edition pulled together thousands of poker pros and qualifiers for 50-events, culminating in the greatest live event final table in recent memory. 513 players took part in the €10,600 Main Event, creating a huge prize pool of over €5,000,000, and the final eight brought together four Team PokerStars Pros in Daniel Negreanu , Jason Mercier , Jake Cody and Johnny Lodden , plus big names Andrew Pantling, Steve O’Dwyer, Noah Schwartz and Grant Levy. When the action was all said and done, rising star and EPT regular Steve O’Dwyer was left standing with the title, trophy and a tidy €1,224,000 in cash.
