In just a few days, the European Poker Tour will kick off EPT 100, a huge poker festival in Barcelona, Spain to celebrate the 100th EPT Main Event. You don’t even need to be there to play along.
The EPT has partnered with Fantasy Poker Manager to offer you a chance to win some cool prizes as you build your Fantasy Poker team for EPT 100.
Powered by the Global Poker Index, Fantasy Poker Manager lets you draft your players from a database and then root for them to go deep in select events. Now, you can draft teams for the EPT Super High Roller and Main Event in Barcelona.
You have some great incentive to play along. The top five fantasy teams for the Super High Roller will win prizes. First place will win a €2,000 national tour package, 2nd-5th places get a €100 online ticket. The same prizes will be awarded for the top five fantasy teams in a separate competition for the Main Event. Note: You need to have a least one Team PokerStars Pro on your team to qualify–as if you wouldn’t have drafted a couple of them anyway.
You can now build your team for the Super High Roller competition and trade players until the start of Day 2. After that, the EPT Main Event competition starts, and you can build your team and trade players until the start of Day 2 of the Main Event (Saturday 23rd, 12.00 CET).
The Super High Roller runs August 18-20 with EPT Live coverage beginning on Day 2. The Main Event kicks off August 21 and will show up on EPT Live starting on Day 1B.
