European Poker Tour launches in Barcelona

Continuing the EPT tradition of starting the tour in Barcelona, this year’s tournament is kicking off to a great start with many players entering for a chance at winning big. Barcelona undoubtedly provides fun in the sun and has been on the ETP schedule for the past few years.

The satellites are ready to go online in the 12th annual European Poker Tour. The combined festival will present 71 events and will run for 13 days, starting with August 18th. The main event constitutes the €1,100 Estrellas Poker Tour NLHE, from August 19th to the 24th, followed by the €5,300 8-Game event and the incredible €50,000 NLHE Super High Roller event.

The ETP Barcelona Main event will kick-off on August 24 with a €5,300 No-Limit Hold’Em game. Barcelona is to stream the tourney starting with day two. Two great commentators are to be present for detailing the game: James Hartigan and Joe Stapleton. With the broadcast starting at 1 PM on the final day of the tour, the stream will be delayed an hour to allow hole card showdown.

Being the main event contender will win you a place in the player’s party to take place on August 23rd at the Club Danzatoria which is conveniently located close to the casino event. Other perks include jet ski, jet boat, banana boats, crazy sofas, and fly fishing.
