The EPT Heads to the Caribbean!

The EPT Heads to the Caribbean! 0001

Season four of the European Poker Tour has been announced with a shock inclusion. The EPT is heading across to the Atlantis Casino Resort. You'll struggle to find this on a European map, however. This venue is in the Bahamas!

Season four will include all the same events from the highly successful season three with the addition of the Caribbean leg. Season 3 saw 3,483 players taking part, creating a total prize pool of nearly €27 million.

"The most exciting news for next season is that the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA), to be held next January at the Atlantis Casino Resort in the Bahamas, has been added to the EPT schedule. The PCA, a hugely popular event, is now 'an official EPT tournament' and we are delighted to welcome it to our list of events," said John Duthie, chief exec' of the PokerStars.com European Poker Tour.

Duthie continued, "We have raised the buy-ins across the board to €8,000. This decision is based on the limited number of people who can be accommodated at our EPT venues, and the fact that the €10,000 EPT Grand Final - our most expensive event - proved so popular."

Season four of the EPT kicks off in Barcelona in August. The full schedule is as follows:
