Pencil the Dates for the New PokerStars EPT Season in 2024

The 2024 PokerStars EPT schedule is out, and online qualifiers are running already, giving you a chance to start planning your poker trips well ahead of time.

PokerStars has revealed the full schedule for the next season of the European Poker Tour, so you can start planning your 2024 tournament journey well ahead of time. While there are no surprises on the schedule, as it is almost identical to the last season, there is plenty to look forward to.

The 2024 EPT Season will run from February — December 2024, with stops in Paris, Monte Carlo, Barcelona, Cyprus, and Prague. Things will kick off with the Paris event, which is coming back for the second time, while PokerStars will wrap things up in Prague in December.

EPT Barcelona is always one of the highlights of the tour, but in 2024, the Spanish city will be even more in focus as it celebrates the 20th anniversary of hosting players. So, we expect that Casino Barcelona will be brimming with action in August — September.

As always, PokerStars will be hosting a variety of satellites for EPT tournaments on its online platforms, and you can already start your journey towards the Paris event. Sign up with PokerStars today, get your welcome bonus, and kick-start your European Poker Tour journey in style!

PokerStars 2023 UKIPT Ends With the Nottingham Festival

The first full PokerStars UKIPT season since 2016 is officially in the books, and it was a successful one in every which way.

PokerStars has successfully completed the return of another popular series as the recently concluded Nottingham festival marked the end of the 2023 United Kingdom and Ireland Poker Tour. This was the first full UKIPT schedule since 2016, and its popularity with the players showed that it was the correct move by the operator.

Nottingham was the final stop of the season, following successful events in London, Edinburgh, Malta, and Blackpool, and it featured a solid tournament schedule highlighted by the £1,000,000 guaranteed Main Event. That guarantee was shattered by over £200,000, creating an impressive prize pool for a £1,100 event.

In the end, it was the French player Vincent Meli lifting up the trophy and pocketing £159,325. The runner-up, Patrice Brandt, ended up with £168,425 as the two decided to split the money when they reached the heads-up stage, leaving only £2,000 and the trophy to play for.

In terms of the entire season, it was a good one for David Docherty, who walked away with a Player of the Year title after sealing his position on the leaderboard with a win in the Nottingham Super High Roller event.

And so, the 2023 UKIPT season is officially in the books, but we’re confident it won’t be long before we have a schedule for 2024, so keep an eye out on the PokerStars app and look for different ways to qualify and get in a mix!

The NAPT Main Event enters Day 3 with 34 players returning to play down to the final table and live coverage of the action available at PokerStars TV.

The Main Event of the North American Poker Tour by PokerStars is now in full swing. Yesterday was a big day as the bubble burst, and 159 players made money, taking home at least $2,625 for their efforts.

That was only the start of the action, as those remaining continued to battle it out for a long while, bringing the field down to 34 players. Those 34 came back today to continue their journey to the final table, and several more players have already hit the rail, bringing the NAPT Main Event down to three tables.

Anthony Dianaty finished Day 2 as an overwhelming chip leader and he is poised to make it into one of the final nine seats. However, he’ll have to navigate his way around some of the veterans of the game, such as Nick Schulman and Sergio Aido, who both made it into Day 3 with big stacks.

If you’d like to follow the NAPT Main Event in (almost) real-time as things unfold, the PokerStars TV live stream is up and running, and it will be available for the entire day today, as well as the full final table coverage tomorrow.
