EPT Barcelona

Barcelona

Season 12 of the European Poker Tour will launch in one of the tour’s most popular destinations - Barcelona, Spain. As the only event to appear on the tour schedule on all 11 seasons to date, EPT Barcelona has become a favorite with players, and you can find out just why from August 18-30, 2015!

2015 also marks the fourth time the EPT will partner with the Estrellas Poker Tour. In 2014, the €1,100 Estrellas Main Event drew a record-smashing field of 2,560 players - the largest freezeout live event field in PokerStars history. Will you help us top that record in 2015?

Away from the ESPT, last year’s €5,300 EPT Main Event drew a staggering 1,496 players, with Andre Lettau eventually crowned the winner, taking home a first prize of €794,058. Now it’s your turn to follow in his footsteps.
