European Poker Tour to Host Europe's Largest-Ever Poker Festival to Celebrate 100th Event

European Poker Tour to Host Europe's Largest-Ever Poker Festival to Celebrate 100th Event 0001

This August, the European Poker Tour (EPT) will celebrate its 100th event by throwing Europe’s largest-ever poker festival in Barcelona. From August 16 – 27, 2014, the Casino Barcelona will kick off Season 11 of the EPT, once again partnering up with the successful Spanish regional Estrellas Poker Tour from August 16 - 21 to create a spectacular 12-day Barcelona poker extravaganza.

“The EPT was born in Barcelona so it’s very fitting to celebrate EPT’s 100th event in true style and with unforgettable poker,” said EPT President Edgar Stuchly. “EPT Barcelona is one of the most popular tour stops and attracts players from all over the world for the fantastic mix of beaches, iconic architecture, party atmosphere and world class poker,” he continued.

Last year’s EPT Barcelona event broke all previous records when the Estrellas and EPT Main Events clocked 1,798 and 1,234 entries, sending Soenke Jahn and Tom “hitthehole” Middleton back home with career-besting prizes of €169,136 and €942,000, respectively. This year, the EPT is adding 20 extra tables to accommodate player fields that are likely to beat last year’s records.
