From November 8-16, the European Poker Tour (EPT) Online will offer $20 million in guarantees over 20 tournaments. The series will culminate with the $5,200 buy-in 2020 EPT Online Main Event on Sunday, November 15 at 18:05 (GMT), and you have a chance to play in that tournament for free!
PokerNews, who will offer live updates from all 20 events, and PokerStars have joined forces to award one lucky winner a $5,200 seat into the EPT Online Main Event. All you have to do is submit a winning video and pledge to donate 10% of any winnings to a charity of your choice. That’s why we’re calling it #EPT4Charity.
How the Contest Works
- Make a 1-2 minute video clip telling us a little about yourself, what charity you’d donate to, and why. Be creative.
- The link to your video must be shared on Twitter using the hashtag #EPT4Charity. You must also email the video/tweet links to [email protected] Put your name in the subject line, and include the following information in the email text: Name … Country of origin … short bio (tell us who you are in five sentences) … Link to your video/tweet.
- 10 finalists will be determined by PokerNews with those videos being compiled for two judges – Fintan “EasyWithAces” Hand and Ben “Spraggy” Spragg – to ultimately pick a winner.
- The winner will not only receive a $5,200 ticket (non-transferable) into the EPT Online Main Event, but PokerNews will also give you the VIP treatment with an interview and featured coverage in the live updates.
- Remember, you must have a PokerStars account and live in an eligible territory (sorry players from the USA).
Given the situation in the world and the fact there are a lot of people struggling right now, the only expectation of the winner is to pay it forward a bit by pledging 10% of your winnings to a charity of your choice.
Maybe you’ll follow in the footsteps of either Chris Dotson, who won an OddsChecker promo last year for a seat into the 2019 World Series of Poker Main Event, or family man TJ Scarber, who won a free $2,700 seat into the Borgata Spring Poker Open.
