FS+G Poker League unveils new name and logo
The WSOP isn’t the only poker tour in the news this week. Not only did we get our first look at the World Poker Tour Season X schedule –the first half of it anyway—but on Monday the long anticipated name of the Federated Sports + Gaming poker league was announced: The Epic Poker League.
With the first tournament scheduled for August 5th, the league now has a name to go along with all of the hype, as well as a new website, www.epicpoker.com, which will be fully launched prior to the first tournament according to the FS+G press release. The website currently contains a countdown clock, a message from league commissioner Annie Duke, a list of eligible players, and the qualification criteria for the Epic Poker League.
“This is no ordinary tournament league,” said Jeffrey Grosman, chief operating officer of FS+G. “Our fields will be some of the toughest in poker history and we expect the competition to be nothing less than epic. In selecting a name that could live up to the players’ incredible skill and talent, epic was a natural fit.”
Players interested in participating in the Epic Poker League can bypass the qualification procedure and win their seat through the $1,500 pro-am satellite tournament:
“Last week FS+G announced its acquisition of Heartland Poker Tour (HPT), which will now produce and televise the first Epic Poker League $1,500 Pro/Am event. This event, open to the public, will generate nine wild card seats into the first $20,000 rake-free Main Event.”
If $1,500 is still out of your price range you can take part in the Palms Casino –the host of the Epic Poker League– Pro/Am satellites for $340 or super-satellites for as little as $40.
