After a long-awaited absence, PokerStars is bringing back the always-popular EPT London after an eight-year layoff. For 11 days, the Park Lane Hilton in posh London will host the triumphant return of the EPT London starting October 18 . The £5,300 Main Event kicks off October 22. Better yet, two Platinum Passes to the 2023 PokerStars Players Championship in the Bahamas are up for grabs.
It has been weird to see the European Poker Tour play out the last eight years without the EPT London on the schedule.

“We’re very excited the EPT is returning to London and for the Hippodrome to be playing a central part in what is certain to be a key future event in the annual poker calendar,” said Kerryjane Craigie , the Hippodrome’s Director of Poker. “We’re gearing up for an amazing 11 days of poker and honoured once again to be partnering with Pokerstars. We will have more cash games available than ever before with 40 tables, and with special offers for all poker players this will be a memorable tournament for all.”
