The PokerStars Championship Monte Carlo replaces the EPT Grand Final on the schedule April 25 – May 5, 2017 in name alone, with the prestigious event guaranteeing €2.5 million and expecting €30 million in payouts across 71 events.

“This season’s PokerStars Championship in Monte Carlo promises the ultimate and complete gaming experience, and not just for those who are regular travelers to the home of the Grand Prix for poker action, but for every kind of player looking for a memorable poker experience,” said Edgar Stuchly, PokerStars Director of Live Events.  “While our Championship events attract some of the best players in the world, this event will see a wide range of tournaments on offer for players of all levels, giving everyone a chance to compete.”

Along with the guarantees, PokerStars has a 33% Early Bird discount for the Monte Carlo Bay Hotel and Resort running March 13 – 20th and limited to the first 50 players.
