The Weekly PokerNews Quiz: Looking Back on the European Poker Tour

12-03-2016 35806 responses Top results

Next week begins the very last European Poker Tour festival. EPT Prague will mark the last stop officially described as an "EPT" by PokerStars, with stops in 2017 and afterwards all being referred to as either PokerStars Festival or PokerStars Championships going forward.

The PokerNews live reporting team will be heading out to the Czech Republic to cover several events, including three different high rollers — the €10,300 High Roller, the €25,500 Single-Day High Roller, and the €50,000 Super High Roller — as well as the €5,300 Main Event.

Since the EPT is on our minds and will continue to be throughout the next couple of weeks, we'll be using the next few installments of "The Weekly PokerNews Quiz" to look back with some trivia questions derived from the EPT's long, storied history.

See how many answers to these eight multiple-choice questions you know, then afterwards check the "Top results" to find out how you did compared to others. Sign into your PokerNews account beforehand and see your username show up on the leaderboard. Need an account? Click here.
