EPT Barcelona will open Season 10 and the tour will again partner with the Estrellas Poker Tour to create Spain’s largest-ever poker festival. The Festival runs August 28-September 7, 2013 and the whole event will once again take place in an annexe of the Gran Casino at Hotel Arts, providing a fantastically spacious venue in a very luxurious setting. This Festival will kick Season 10 off in style - make sure you are there.
EPT Barcelona Main Event
The €5,000 + €300 Main Event will take place September 1-7, and will attract the best players from around the world, plus hundreds of PokerStars qualifiers. Last season's event was a spectacular success with by far the biggest field the tournament has ever drawn. More than 1,000 players competed; making it the biggest poker tournament ever held in Spain, and the Main Event prize pool topped €5,000,000! Belarussian player Mikalai Pobal scooped the massive €1,007,700 first prize after beating Finland’s Ilari Sahamies.
Estrellas Poker Tour Barcelona
Estrellas Poker Tour events will take place August 28-September 1, and will conclude the ESPT Season 4 schedule. The Main Event will feature a €1,000 + €100 buy-in, and this is one of Spain’s most eagerly-anticipated live poker tournaments.

ONLINE GAMING REGULATIONS IN SPAIN
On June 5, 2012, online gaming operators who meet the 13/2011 gaming law requirements commenced regulated operations in Spain. From that date, those who wish to participate in gambling, roulette, bingo and poker will have to meet specific requirements for registration and participation. These games are regulated and supervised by the General Gaming Directorate that works for a fair and controlled environment for legal and reliable operators.
Be advised that for safe and secure gambling, you should check that the operator with which you wish to participate is in possession of a license issued by the General Gaming Directorate. The ‘Play Safe’ logo is one of the indicators you should look for.
Media must apply for accreditation online at www.europeanpokertour.com/media/.
