From today to Friday 5th of May, the casino of Monte-Carlo hosts numerous Texas Hold’em and Omaha tournaments in Monaco.


It is the first time that this event comes under this name in the Principality, and even in Europe. Indeed, the Pokerstars Championship is the new name for the EPT (European Poker Tour).


After successful stages in the Bahamas (6th to 14th of January), Panama (10th to 20th of March) and Macao (30th to 9th of April), everything should as great at Monaco, a city very liked by the players.

The Main-Event remains the same and may allows another French player to shine, after the superb second position of Adrien Allain last year (more than €500,000 of gains).


Also, during all the Championship, you will have the opportunity to participate in dozen and dozen of Cash Games from noon to 6am, with blinds ranging from €1/€2 to €200/€400.


Playful activities for the players are also suggested. Then, you can participate in games of Virtual Reality and win numerous prizes (even a real Virtual reality machine!). Lucky draws during all the event will allow some players to drive a Ferrari in the centre of the Principality!
