EPT Vienna Main Event 2014 Set for Huge Numbers

A giant field is predicted for the EPT Vienna Main Event which kicks off at noon tomorrow at the stunning Hofburg Palace, the former imperial residence in the heart of the Austrian capital. (A record-breaking 1,432 players turned up for the Eureka Vienna Main Event, the debut event of the EPT Vienna Poker Festival and now down to just nine players.) There are more than 330 players already registered for EPT Vienna including 265 who won their seats on PokerStars plus more than 20 members of Team PokerStars Pro, PokerStars Team Online and Full Tilt Poker Ambassadors.

The PokerStars.net Eureka Poker Tour has joined forces with the European Poker Tour to create an 11-day festival in Vienna with a total of 40 tourneys scheduled at the stunning Hofburg Palace from March 19-29. This is the third time that the EPT has visited Vienna, the most recent being EPT7 when German student Michael Eiler defeated a 578-strong field to seize the title, trophy and €700,000 first prize. Eiler is set to defend his title at this season's EPT Vienna, which will feature more new games than any other event in Season 10. For more info, see www.ept.com.

At all EPTs this season, the EPT has joined forces with the local or regional tour and offered a €2k High Roller event just before the EPT Main Event. The entry numbers for these so far have been: Estrellas Barcelona (521); UKIPT London (176); Eureka Prague (430) and France Poker Series Deauville (303).

At the Eureka Prague High Roller, there were 430 runners and the event was won by American David Peters for €131,000 after he cut a heads-up deal with EPT9 Player of the Year Jan Bendik.
