Celebrations Expected For EPT in Barcelona
While the majority of you will be too interested in the World Series of Poker to be thinking about anything happening after, many of the world’s top players will already be penciling in the European Poker Tour Barcelona on the 16th of August.
The event marks the start of Season 11 of the European Poker Tour and will also see the 100th Main Event held. This is sure to lead to PokerStars and the EPT putting on quite a party. Probably a party like never seen before.
The European Poker Tour announced the schedule of events for Barcelona just a few days ago and the players will already have scanned it and marked down the events that they plan on attending. There is going to be parties, celebrations and we are sure there will also be plenty of special promotions along the way too.
Kicking off the festival in Barcelona will be the smaller partnering Estrellas Poker Tour. It will be bringing a handful of events including the Main Event and a High Roller. These events are designed to attract new players into the live tournament format, with the events offering far lower buy-ins than their EPT cousins.
The European Poker Tour actually starts kicking into action on the 19th of August with the Super High Roller event. This will attract the biggest names in the game looking to secure a big payout. Then will come the EPT Barcelona Main Event on the 21st, the 100th Main Event in the tours ten year history. The festival will end with the High Roller event on the 25th that is somewhere between the two previous events with regards to buy-ins.
Season 10 of the European Poker Tour was a huge success and they will want Season 11 to carry on in that vein. Do not forget that we witnessed the first double Main Event winner when the British Professional Victoria Coren scooped the SanRemo Main Event title to go with her London Main Event title seven years prior to it.
Well, until then we still have that ‘little’ thing called the World Series of Poker to get through, though it is good to know that we already have some good action lined up for when it ends. The world of poker has never been so good, events around every corner it seems.
