After a three-year hiatus, the PokerStars European Poker Tour (EPT) presented by Monte-Carlo Casino® has returned to the French Riviera. From April 28, 2022, some of the most important names in the live poker circuit will fight for glory in Monte-Carlo Sporting.
The first high stakes competition starts on the first day of the series and has a buy-in of € 10,200. This is the first time PokerStars has used the Mystery Bounty format for a five-digit purchase, while the operator has already hosted the latest fashion in the world of live and online poker at previous EPT stops.
For each purchase, € 4,700 will go to the cash prize pool, while € 5,000 will go to the prize pool. Mystery Bounties will start once the tournament has reached cash and all players who are still in contention when the cash bubble has burst will receive a Mystery Bounty token. For each eliminated opponent, the winner will collect the respective token and then be able to draw an envelope to determine their reward prize.
Day 1 of the € 10,200 mysterious reward it is scheduled to start at 8pm local time and eight levels of 30 minutes each are expected on the first of the two days of the tournament. A maximum of two registrations are allowed and late registration is open until the end of level ten.
All participants receive 100,000 in tokens and the first two levels include blinds of 500-1,000 with a large blind of 1,000. Four sets of duplicate levels set the pace for day 1, while the action resumes the next day at 12.30 local time. Last-minute additions to the field will enter the fray with 20 big blinds at level 11.
High Roller regulars are expected to do so at the tables and the PokerNews live reporting team will be there to deliver all the action from start to finish.
