Join PokerNews in the Czech Republic for the 2022 EPT Prague Festival

The PokerStars European Poker Tour (EPT) stops off in the Czech capital, Prague, this December, and PokerNews’ live reporting team will be on the ground throughout the festival, relating all of the action from the schedule’s biggest and most-prestigious events.

Prague has long been one of the most popular stops on the EPT, and has grown in popularity since combining the EPT Prague events with the Eureka Poker Tour. Since 2013, each EPT Prague Main Event has attracted more than 1,000 entries, with a record 1,190 players turning out in force the last time the EPT dropped anchor in the picturesque Czech city.

The 2022 edition of EPT Prague runs from December 7-18, during which time a staggering 53 numbered tournaments are crammed into the bustling schedule. PokerNews is providing unrivaled coverage from ten of those tournaments, including atrio of €25,000 buy-in events, the €50,000 EPT Super High Roller, and, of course, the €5,300 EPT Prague Main Event.
