Last Updated: November 6, 2023
One of the world’s biggest live poker tournament tours, the European Poker Tour, has just released the schedule for another exciting season in 2023.
Sponsored by the industry giant PokerStars, the tour will feature a total of five events in the coming year, with two never before seen stops in Cyprus and Paris, which are guaranteed to add even more allure to the Tour as a whole.
The new season promises a lot of great poker and some amazing stories as well, with new and old destinations alike guaranteed to dazzle with exciting poker action and fun activities off the felt.
Discussing the new schedule, PokerStars Head of Global Live Event Operations Cedric Billot commented:
“Having two new iconic new locations will help us make players' dreams in 2023 without any doubt. The first time in the glamorous French capital and another exciting new addition to the tour — Cyprus.
It's the perfect location to add to our schedule and we look forward to bringing all that an EPT has to offer to this new location.”
Let’s take a closer look at how exactly the schedule will look and what we can expect from the EPT in 2023.
The 2023 EPT Schedule
The 2023 season of the European Poker Tour will start in February, following the PokerStars events in the Caribbean which are scheduled for January of 2023.
The first stop of the Tour will take players to Paris for the first time in its history, with the city becoming the 13th European capital to host an EPT event.
The Paris EPT festival will go on for a total of twelve days between February 15 and 26 and will offer a variety of poker tournaments across all game types and formats.
This brand new stop will be followed up by two long-standing and prestigious EPT stops in Monte Carlo and London, which will take up the spring and summer slots of the year.

EPT Monte Carlo will go on from April 26 to May 6, while the London leg of the Tour will take place from August 21 to September 3.
Players will have a chance to explore yet another exciting location in October, when Cyprus’ Merit Royal Hotel Casino & Spa will host the Tour event.
This prestigious casino has become a staple of European poker in recent years, and will now expand its offering to the EPT as well.
Finally, the year will traditionally close out with another EPT Prague event between December 6 and 17, the same timeslot the event is taking this year, in just a couple of days.
With each stop of the tour offering multiple tournaments and satellites, players will have an opportunity to play a hectic and full schedule of poker tournaments across the year with very little time to rest and step away from the ring.
