European Poker Tour Announces 45 Event Deauville Schedule

ONCHAN, Isle of Man – The European Poker Tour today confirmed the schedule for the EPT10 Deauville Festival in January 2014, with the GPI European Poker Awards as part of the 11-day festival.

From January 22 – February 1, 2014 the beautiful Casino Barriẻre will serve as the base for the French stop of the world’s richest poker tour, which will join forces with the France Poker Series (FPS) Season 3 Grand Final from January 22 – 26. The festival will feature the FPS €1,100 Main Event with a guaranteed €500,000 prize pool, a €2,500 FPS High Roller, a €10,300 EPT High Roller, plus a host of different game variants with buy-ins from €120. The flagship EPT €5,300 Main Event will take place from January 26. For the first time, at the Deauville stop, the international min-raise rule will be enforced allowing players to make smaller raises and have more pre-flop betting action.

This is the seventh time that the tour has headed to the French seaside resort – the first was back in Season 1 when American player Brandon Schaefer lifted the trophy and pocketed the €144,000 first prize. Last year Remi Castaignon took down the Main Event after besting a field of 782 players to pocket the €770,000 first prize, becoming the eighth French player to pick up an EPT title.

GPI European Poker Awards

The 12th edition of the GPI European Poker Awards will be held as part of the EPT Deauville festival on January 29. The event will once again bring together Europe’s top pros and those working in the industry to celebrate the best of European poker.

"The European Poker Awards are going to recognise the best performers in European poker over the last year.  It's a celebration of the players: their achievements, their contests, and their efforts throughout 2013," said Alexandre Dreyfus, President of the Global Poker Index.

"The event will be open to players, spectators and media, and it will be a great opportunity to showcase our sport to the public: whether you are a poker player or not, this event is an important part of showing that poker is a fun, safe and competitive game that anyone can play," said Dreyfus.
