Weekend Review: Barcelona blow-out ends with Juanda victory

Now, that was a weekend.

By now, you've probably heard all about it, but if you were on a no-devices stay-cation with the love of your life, here's what you missed:

EPT Barcelona broke just about every record known to the EPT, including becoming the biggest-ever EPT Main Event. Neymar Jr showed up and played several events. It was enough to even get a rise out of Mike "Timex" McDonald.

Well, Neymar Jr didn't win, but one of poker's most famous men did: John Juanda, one of poker's winningest players, added more than a million euros to his lifetime winnings. It was, in a word, jump-worthy.
