The European Poker Tour is back in London for a second time in 2013, and while the first ever £50,000 Super High Roller is already well underway (you can check out who made the final table and sweat the live updates here), it's now time for the £5,000+250 Main Event.
London has been a stop on all 10 seasons of the EPT, peaking in Season 5 when it generated a total prize pool of £3,349,200. The first player to win an EPT title in the UK was Britain's own John Shipley, and the Season 9 winner was Ruben Visser.
In Season 3, Victoria Coren won the Main Event, becoming the first female to ever capture an EPT title.
PokerNews' own Chad Holloway profiled the former winners in one of his Where Are They Now pieces, and the following table lists all of the winners along with their respective first-place prizes:
The Grand Connaught Rooms on Great Queen St. will play host to the second stop on Season 10 of the EPT. At the start of September, Tom Middleton won the EPT Barcelona Main Event, earning €942,000. Vitaly Lunkin won the Super High Roller for €771,300 and Thomas Muhlocker defeated Team PokerStars Pro Daniel Negreanu heads up in the High Roller to win €390,700.
The cards will be in the air at noon, and PokerNews will be on the floor to provide live updates from the first hand dealt until the final river card. We hope you join us throughout.
