€10,200 Mystery Bounty

EPT Barcelona Coverage Kicks Off With €10,200 Mystery Bounty

Casino Barcelona

The PokerStars and Barcelona©Casino European Poker Tour is back for the first time since 2019 and PokerNews' coverage kicks off with €10,200 Mystery Bounty, one of the first events of the series that gets underway at 7 p.m. local time.

The two-day event at Casino Barcelona should be an exciting one with the bounties adding a sweat factor. €5,000 of the buy-in will go toward the bounty pool while €4,800 will go into the regular prize pool.

Players will begin with a starting stack of 100,000 chips in exchange for their buy-in. Levels will last 30 minutes in duration with blinds beginning at 500/1,000/1,000.

Day 1 will play for eight levels and late registration will close after Level 10 on Day 2, which kicks off Tuesday, August 9 at noon, meaning players will be able to register up to approximately 1 p.m.

The bounty component of the tournament will take effect on at the start of Level 13 and all remaining players will receive a "Mystery Bounty Token."

The second and final day of the tournament will play down to a winner, who will take home the trophy and the biggest cut of the prize pool.

After a three-year hiatus, EPT Barcelona should draw big fields as players look for a life-changing score. Back in 2019, Sweden's Simon Brandstrom took down the €5,300 EPT Main Event for a career-best €1,290,166 after a heads-up deal with Hungary's Marton Czuczor.
