PokerNews Is Reporting on the Biggest 2022 EPT Monte Carlo Events

April 24, 2022
2022 EPT Monte Carlo

The European Poker Tour (EPT) returns to the world-famous Monte-Carlo Casino for the first time since 2019 and PokerNews’ live reporting team will be on the ground from April 28 through to May 7, bringing you live and exclusive updates from six of the schedule’s biggest events.

Our coverage starts with the €10,200 Mystery Bounty and €1,100 FPS Main Event from April 28.The FPS Monte Carlo Main Event last ran in 2016 and saw Stephane Dossetto defeat Niall Farrell heads-up for the title. Dossetto walked away with €218,000 ($245,958) that day, and we would expect similar numbers on the FPS’ long-awaited return.

PokerNews is also bringing you all the action from the €100,000 Super High Roller, €50,000 No-Limit Hold’em, and the €25,000 High Roller events. Of course, no EPT coverage would be complete without the €5,300 Main Event.

Former EPT Monte Carlo Main Event Champions

The past winners of the EPT Monte-Carlo Main Event read like a who’s who of the poker world. Some of the biggest-ever EPT prizes stem from this glamorous stop and we expect some big numbers for the Main Event’s long-awaited return.

Manig Loeser is the reigning EPT Monte-Carlo Main Event champion, having outlasted 921 opponents in 2019. Loeser reeled in a €603,777 payout on that occasion. Everything was shaping up for the 2020 edition to be huge, but the COVID-19 pandemic put paid to those plans, and again in 2021. Players are itching to return to the iconic Monte-Carlo Casino, and we cannot wait to be in the thick of it either.
