11th season of the European Poker Tour has ended after 20-year-old Adrian Mateos became the champion. And many players are already studying the schedule of the 12th season, which was announced in May here on PokerNews.
“Since the EPT100 celebration in Barcelona last August and until the 11th EPT Grand Final in Monaco – it was really a spectacular season, and we are already looking forward to the upcoming 12th season,” – said the president of the EPT Edgar Stuchly. “For the first time in the history of the EPT, we paid more than € 100 million in prizes only in European competition, and there were more than 60,000 entries in the tournament.” (read our other PokerStars related news here: Casino news)

The details of the tour
The festival in Barcelona has been the most massive since the first season. A record number of participants and co-hosting with the Estrellas Poker Tour makes it a long-awaited event for all poker players.
The biggest discussion triggered the announcement of the return of the tour to Dublin – the capital and largest city in Ireland. The fourth season of the tour has already taken place in Dublin, and now it falls on the same date as the earlier stage in the Deauville – soon after the PCA. According to the press release of the EPT, “The festival will be held in conjunction with the UK & Ireland Poker Tour in the Royal Dublin Society, just a short drive from Dublin city center.”
Four other stops are Malta, Prague, PCA and Monte Carlo, which have already been presented in the 11th season, when Malta made its successful debut on the tour and the main event with a buy-in of € 5,300 gathered nearly 900 participants.
