European Poker Championship 2011 Schedule

This year´s schedule is the biggest yet, but with a lot of emphasis on qualification for the European Poker Tour which is jointly hosted by the Vic and the London Hilton Metropole.  The eleven days of action conclude with a super satellite for the EPT Main Event, and players can qualify for the Super Satellite via its own qualifier, which has a buy-in of £80.00 + £12.00 (buy-in for EPT ME is £5,250.00, so a good ROI just to qualify!).
