The EPT is coming back to London eight years to the day from the last EPT London event. The series will be returning to the UK's capital city on October 18 when it will run alongside a series of UKIPT events until October 28.

The 2014 EPT London wrapped up on October 18, 2014. In other words, the last time the European Poker Tour was in London, the UK was still in the European Union.

The overlapping EPT and UKIPT schedule means that just about any bankroll will be catered to at the Hilton on Park Lane. There will be events with buy-ins of a few hundred pounds up to the EPT Super High Roller which will cost £50,000 to enter.

Key details for the 2022 EPT London

The Hilton will be hosting the event under the management and license of the Hippodrome Casino just up the road. As a result, you will need to set up a membership with the Hippodrome before registering. You will need some form of photo ID to register.

Players who are planning on attending should note that the event will be entirely cashless. That means you may need to warn your bank about large card payments or plan to pay for your buy-ins in advance at the Hippodrome itself.

"London's calling - and raising," PokerStars LIVE tweeted. "#EPTLondon is back and there are two Platinum Passes to be won."

To encourage players to load up the PokerStars app, Stars is offering an all in or fold freeroll for any online qualifiers on October 22. Win your way into the UKIPT London or EPT London through PokerStars and you'll get a seat in the event. The winner will get a $30,000 Platinum Pass.

Another Platinum Pass will also be in the tombola for the EPT £3,000 Platinum Pass Mystery Bounty event. This event kicks off on October 24.
