About Eureka Poker Tour
The Eureka Poker Tour is one of the first PokerStars sponsored tours to not use a geographical name. The tour takes place in several locations in Eastern and Central Europe, but that was a bit too much of a mouthful to say, so it was decided to use something more abstract for the name.
The inaugural event of Season 1 took place in Prague, Czech Republic in March 2011, where a prize pool in excess of €200,000 was reached. Next up, the tour visited Slovenia, Bulgaria and Croatia and the special Deep Stack event at the EPT8 event in Prague served as the tour’s Grand Final at the end of the year. In Season 1, winners took home a grand total of almost €1,200,000 in combined prizes.In 2012, Eureka revisited Croatia and Bulgaria, and in October the tour touched down in Latvia for the first time. Season 2 then concluded in the Czech Republic where the final Eureka event of the year took place in Prague. The EPT Prague Main Event took place in the same venue. This combined festival was a real treat at the end of the year, with more than two weeks’ worth of exciting poker events held, and the highest participation in a Eureka Main Event to-date was achieved with 652 players.
In Season 3 Eureka returned to some of the popular destinations, such as Golden Sands, Bulgaria in July and Prague in December. However the first stop for Season 3 Eureka was in Rozvadov – a small ‘poker’ town in the Czech Republic, close to German border.
In Season 4 the tour visited Vienna for the first time with the European Poker Tour in the Hofburg Palace and returned to Rozvadov for a regular event and the King’s Cup. The Season 4 final was in Prague again with the EPT festival.
In Season 5, Eureka started in Rozvadov and made a first visit to Germany in the beautiful city of Hamburg to finish its shorter season in Prague with another EPT festival.
The details of upcoming Eureka events will be announced here first, so keep checking back for all the details.
We look forward to see you again soon and wish you all the best at the tables!
