The European Poker Tour Prague festival is underway, and before it is done the 115th and final EPT Main Event champion will be crowned.

The PokerNews live reporting team has already begun to arrive. Coverage from EPT Prague starts tomorrow, highlighted by three different high rollers — the €10,300 High Roller, the €25,500 Single-Day High Roller, and the €50,000 Super High Roller — and, of course, the €5,300 Main Event.

Speaking of EPT Main Events, there have been a number of memorable EPT Main Event winners over the years, including several players who thanks to their wins on the EPT joined the ranks of the most well known players on the tournament circuit.

For today's installment of "The Weekly PokerNews Quiz" we're continuing our look back at the EPT's history with eight questions about past Main Event winners. See how many you remember, then check the "Top results" afterwards to see how you stacked up against others taking the quiz — and who is the current champion among the quiz-takers.
