About the Italian Poker Tour

The Italian Poker Tour, a series of live poker tournaments sponsored by PokerStars.it, has been a great success since the very first event that took place in San Remo in June 2009.

Many of the best pro players and new faces from the Italian poker scene and beyond have challenged each other at nine stops on the tour held in three wonderful towns:  San Remo, Venice and Nova Gorica, with very rich prize pools up for grabs. Thanks to satellite qualifiers on PokerStars.it, scores of online qualifiers have been able to fulfil the dream of playing high-level live poker events, with many going on to find great success and emerge as the new stars of poker.

The tour concludes with the EPT San Remo where the nine previous IPT winners, that you can see below, will compete for the title.
