European Poker Tour on its way to Berlin Germany for first time
Europe’s second most populated city is about to host its first European Poker Tour event. The EPT has made numerous stops in Germany, but this will be the tour’s first stop in Berlin: The previous stops in Germany were in Dortmund, during seasons 3, 4, and 5.
Season 5’s German stop ranked third in overall attendance, and was the largest tournament ever held in Germany. PokerStars is so confident in the turnout that the site has guaranteed a $1,000,000 prize-pool for the $5,300 buy-in tournament.
Historically, Berlin has never been a hotbed of poker activity, and until the worldwide poker explosion the game of choice in Berlin was 7-Card-Stud. However, all that changed post 2004, and the EPT Berlin event should draw big numbers. With a huge population base, a major metropolitan city, a large casino, and as one of the most visited cities in the world I’m surprised this is the first time the EPT will visit the city.
German’s have fared very well on the EPT, trailing only players from the United States and England in overall titles –The US has 10, England has 8, and Germany has 5.
The tournament begins March 2nd, and will be held at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Potsdamer Platz (one of the trendiest shopping locales on earth).
