The Mediterranean Poker Party, a live poker series organized by the EA Poker Tour (EAPT) and Merit Poker, will return to Northern Cyprus, May 2-14.

The Eurasia-focused EAPT previously staged this series in 2022, at Cyprus’ Merit Royal Hotel & Casino in Kyrenia. Winners back then included Rob Yong, who beat Espen Jørstad and Phil Nagy in the $11,111 One Drop event to bank $87,000. Antanas ‘Tony G’ Guoga, meanwhile, won $257,500 in the $10,400 high roller.

The 2024 event will return to Northern Cyprus, taking place at the 5-star Merit Royal Diamond and Spa. The EAPT is giving away a package worth €5,000 in a prize draw this Friday – see below for details of how to enter.
