EPT Prague breakin’ all of the records. At end of late registration yesterday, 1315 runners had stumped up the €1100 buyin to the first event of the EPT Prague stop—making a total prize pool a handsome €1,275,000.
This makes it not only the largest tournament in Prague’s history, but—with a first place winning a cool €226,400—the largest prize ever awarded in Eureka Poker Tour history.
The bubble popped just over an hour ago, meaning 191 players are secured at least a €1750 payday. Day 3 tomorrow plays down to a final table, with the final nine playing to a winner Thursday.
Live streaming also starts on Thursday, not just to capture this final, but also the highly anticipated Rafa Nadal/Ronaldo heads up championship match.
