The EUREKA Tour is heading to Hamburg, Germany in September. The PokerStars-sponsored festival is returning to the German city for the first time in seven years, with the stop expected to attract a strong turnout.

The tour last visited Hamburg in September 2016, although PokerStars has hosted multiple other live events in the city over the past few years.

EUREKA Hamburg

After reviving the United Kingdom and Ireland Poker Tour (UKIPT) with a full slate of events in 2023, PokerStars is also bringing back the EUREKA Tour with multiple stops to look forward to throughout the year.

The tour opened 2023 with a stop in Rozvadov in March. Its next destination is Hamburg, Germany’s second-largest city. EUREKA Hamburg runs from September 26-October 3 and will be headlined by the Main Event. The tournament costs €1,100 to enter and takes place from September 29-October 3.

Other key events on the schedule include the €330 EUREKA Cup (September 26-28) and the €2,200 EUREKA High Roller (October 2-3). The Casino Schenefeld, which houses one of Germany’s most popular poker rooms, will play host to the action. The same venue hosted the Road to PSPC event in September last year.

PokerStars will announce the full schedule of EUREKA Hamburg soon.
