When one door opens, another door closes as they say. In this article we're going to let you know about the upcoming PokerStars events, including the European Poker Tour, the PokerStars Festival and the PokerStars MEGASTACK series.

There are two future EPT stops planned in 2018, and they're both absolute classis. The full schedule for EPT Barcelona (August 21-September 2) hasn't been published yet, but there are already some key event dates for you to put in your calendar.

This will be the first time the EPT will be back in Barcelona since Sebastian Malec stunning victory in 2016, where he took home €1,122,800 in prize money.
