The European Poker Tour is set to host its 100th event this August, and has revealed they will be hosting Europe’s largest ever Poker festival in Barcelona, Spain.
Spanning from August 16-27, 2014, the Casino Barcelona event will officially mark the beginning of season 11 of the EPT, and will partner with the locally-renowned ‘Estrellas Poker Tour’ from the 16th-21st to produce what is sure to be a truly memorable 12 day Poker extravaganza.
EPT President Edgar Stuchly said the Tour could not be more excited about the 100th event, particularly as it will be held in one of the world’s most picturesque cities.
“The EPT was born in Barcelona so it’s very fitting to celebrate EPT’s 100th event in true style and with unforgettable poker” Stuchly said.
“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.”
The 2013 edition of the event broke all major European Poker records, and eventually saw the two Main Events of 1,798 and 1,234 players respectively award winners Soenke Jahn and Tom Middleton with €169,136 and €942,000 – each player’s largest victory to date.
This year, the EPT has revealed that 20 extra tables will be included to ensure the expected player fields will be covered, and records are broken once again.
