The popular EMOP tournament series wraps up its third season with a stop at Barcelona for the perfect mixture of sun and poker fun, with the Gran Casino Barcelona playing host to the action.
EMOP Barcelona offers up everything that players have come to love in European Masters of Poker tournaments, with attractive and scenic locale the backdrop for plenty of poker action, with a €1,000+100 main event on tap as well as numerous side events with buy-ins from €115 up to €550.
There’s also plenty of cash up for grabs just like at all the EMOP stops, with the winners of events typically walking away with €65,000-€75,000 for first place.
As is the case with series such as the GSOP and EMOP, the smaller buy-in for the main event and numerous online satellites at sites including 24hPoker, the field is largely online qualifiers at most stops on the circuit, which can lead to plenty of value for experienced players.
24hPoker is our recommended choice for online satellites to EMOP Barcelona, with online finals each week that hand out a guaranteed €2,000 trip package. 24hPoker players also have access to exclusive parties at EMOP stops, yet another reason to qualify there.
Spain is a popular destination for many players on the tournament circuit, as the weather and nightlife are hard to beat plus the general skill level for Spanish players still tends to be on the weaker side.
