EPT Barcelona: Free and easy
Rod's on the make
Plenty of Poker Stars qualifiers got here via FPP (Frequent Player Points) tournaments. It's the ultimate free-roll: you like poker, you play a lot, you earn points....and you end up playing for a 700,000 euro first prize on the EPT!
Once such happy freeloader is New York's Rod 'Rolodinero' Donnino, who won his package the FPP way, and is over here with his buddy Hurricane42 (a Poker Stars qualifier at the 2004 WSOP).
Rod's chip count is around 12,000 as we move into the second level - free and easy.
