The fourth European Poker Tour event of Season 7 gets under way in Vienna next week.
It’s the first time the EPT tour has been back to the Austrian capital since Season 1 in 2004, when Frenchman Pascal Perrault won what was only the sixth ever EPT event, earning €184,500.
This time around the field and prize pool are expected to be substantially greater, with a staggering €500,000 first prize guarantee.
The event will be held in the 19th century Renaissance-style Concord Card Casino at the Kursalon palace in Vienna’s beautiful City Park.
"It is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe.
"I’ll be playing my best game to try and take home the €500,000.”
