Season 8 of the European Poker Tour (EPT) series sponsored by PokerStars is back and better than ever, with EPT Barcelona providing its usual flair and appeal to tournament poker players..
EPT Tallinn kicks off Season 8 with Barcelona following close on its heels, offering the same recipe that poker fans have come to love on the EPT: beautiful tournament locations + plentiful online satellites and tons of cash to play for.
Last year’s EPT Barcelona winner was Kent Lundmark, who took home €825,000 for his efforts. With many EPT events continuing to grow year over year, all signs point to the 2011 winner taking home at least as much cash if not even more.
Many players go out of their way to attend EPT events in Spain, Italy, and France, as the fields continue to be much softer than at some of the other EPT circuit events, with many new players taking their seats for the first time in a big tournament after having qualified online.
PokerStars constantly runs online satellites for events such as EPT Barcelona, with nearly half the field at some events qualifying online. Trip packages are available each and every week including full packages that cover the main event buy-in, hotel, and travel in addition to seat-only packages that just pay for the buy-in.
Players can buy directly into the finals or play their way in via more affordable satellites or freerolls, offering players of all bankrolls a realistic way to win their way to Barcelona for a shot at an EPT title.
