  • The EAPT visits Madrid for the first time via a festival that runs from Feb. 12-19
  • The schedule is headlined by the €560 buy-in, €180K GTD Main Event
  • The tour heads next to Madrid following the successful conclusion of EAPT Bratislava on Jan. 28

The Eurasian Poker Tour (EAPT) just wrapped up its eight-day event in Bratislava and will quickly move to its next destination – Madrid, Spain.

The 2024 EAPT Madrid stop kicks off on February 12, with the Casino Grand Via playing host to the action.

It’s the first time that the tour is visiting the Spanish capital, and it’s marking its debut with a week of “big-time” poker, with over €250,000 in total guarantees up for grabs.

EAPT Madrid – Key Details

The inaugural EAPT Madrid runs from February 12-19, featuring eight events, with buy-ins ranging from €115 to €1,100. The festival opens with the €250 buy-in, €25,000GTD EAPT Cup which has four Day 1 flights. The tournament’s final action takes place on Feb. 14.

The line-up also includes a high roller poker event, €1,100 High Roller which takes place towards the end of the series (Feb. 18-19), with a few €115 buy-in events spread across the schedule.

The main highlight of the festival is easily the €560 NLHE Main Event featuring four starting flights which run from Feb. 15-17. Day 2 of the tournament is scheduled for Feb. 18, with the winner crowned on Feb. 19. Players can enter the tournament for a fraction of the price via satellites taking place at the avenue. They are available for only €80 and will award 28 Main Event seats.

The Main Event comes with a €180,000 guarantee, with an additional €20,000 on offer for the top four finishers who will each qualify for the Grand Final in Cyprus in May.

It will be EAPT’s first time in Madrid, but not in Spain. In 2023, the tour’s schedule included a stop in Barcelona. It was a huge success, with the €560 Main Event attracting 357 entries. The tournament was won by Fernando Torrents for €26,625 following a four-way deal.

Miklos Zsuffa Wins EAPT Bratislava Main Event

The tour’s latest stop – EAPT Bratislava – concluded just a few days ago with the crowning of its Main Event winner, Miklos Zsuffa. The Hungarian player outclassed Greek poker pro Christoforos Chrysochoidis heads-up to win the tournament on Jan. 28 and secure the €32,630 first-place prize.

Additionally, Zsuffa walked away with a €5,000 EAPT package which he could use to enter any upcoming EAPT events. Chances are Zsuffa will use the package in the EAPT Madrid. He may take a shot at the Main Event and take home the crown, making him EAPT’s first back-to-back champion.
