The EA Poker Tour Heads to Dusk Till Dawn For an 11-Day Extravaganza

The EA Poker Tour (EAPT) is currently in sunny Cyprus, where it is part of the Mediterranean Poker Party and the EAPT Grand Final but plans are already afoot for when those festivals end. Between May 15 and May 26, the EAPT will take over the home of British poker, Dusk Till Dawn for the EAPT UK festival.

Most EAPT Main Events cost €560 and have guaranteed prize pools of €200,000, but Dusk Till Dawn rarely does anything by halves and has slapped a £500,000 guarantee in the EAPT UK Main Event’s prize pool. To help reach that bumper guarantee, the EAPT UK has five £560 flights held at Dusk Till Dawn, one £560 online Day 1 hosted on GGPoker, and at least 90 seats guaranteed to be won in live satellites at Dusk Till Dawn.

The EAPT UK Main Event is not the only tournament on the schedule with a six-figure prize pool. The £340 Luxon Pay Mystery Bounty boasts a £100,000 guarantee, the same amount guaranteed in the £1,100 No-Limit Hold’em High Roller.

You should also check out the £230 buy-in, £50,000 guaranteed DTD Cup, and the series-ending £230 No-Limit Hold’em Deepstack Turbo that has £20,000 guaranteed.

Past EAPT Main Event Results

The EAPT has existed since 2013 but recently underwent a complete rebranding. In June 2023, it stopped in Rozvadov and has since stopped in Milan, Barcelona, Bucharest, Bratislava, Madrid, and Malta.

EAPT Malta ran in April 2024 and saw Lorenzo Di Blasi take home €50,225 for his victory in the €560 EAPT Malta Main Event. Amazingly, just three days before his Main Event victory, Di Blasi took down the €120 No-Limit Hold’em Flight to MPP tournament for €8,500.

As the table shows, the first place prizes in EAPT Main Events are substantial. However, these results are from tournaments with a guarantee of €180,000 or €200,000; the EAPT UK Main Event has £500,000 guaranteed. Expect a top prize closer to six figures once the champion is crowned at Dusk Till Dawn on May 27.
