PokerStars: EPT Malta Added to the Season 11 Schedule

October 13, 2014

PokerStars seem to have an affinity for the Mediterranean when it comes to setting up large-scale live poker events, and who can blame them: the area is indeed perfect for this sort of activity among a number of other great pastimes. While in the past, they have mostly stuck to the shorelines, with the introduction of the European Poker Tour’s newest stop, PokerStars are bringing the action right into the middle of the Mediterranean: to Malta.

The host of the EPT Malta will be the Portomaso Casino and the Series – which spans 11 days – will kick off on March 18, 2015. There will be a Main Event featuring a €5.3K buy-in, and the Series will play host to the €1.1K Main Event of the IPT as well. Malta is indeed a superb destination for an EPT stop: it already has a solid poker community as many professional players from the US set up shop there following the banning of the game back home.

The 14th edition of the GPI European Poker Awards will also be moved to Malta: it will take place on March 25.

Sign up to PokerStars and take advantage of the EPT 11 satellites which are already running at the site.
