The Czech Republic’s current state of emergency has forced PokerStars and King’s Casino to postpone EPT Prague.
The European Poker Tour (EPT) festival was due to follow the WSOPE and run from December 8 to December 20. Now, however, the organizers will look to host EPT Prague at an as yet undecided date in 2022.
All involved were confident that the Czech Republic’s latest COVID restrictions wouldn’t affect the schedule. King’s Resort announced on Thursday that, despite a national state of emergency due to rising COVID cases, the WSOPE and EPT Prague would go ahead as planned.
Anyone who has paid entry fees or won an EPT Prague package can contact PokerStars Live (firstname.lastname@example.org) to claim a refund. There may also be the option to transfer payments and packages to a later date.
Further details about when EPT Prague is going to happen will be released in due course.
