EPT9 Barcelona satellites hitting PokerStars

ept-thumb-promo.jpgDon't look now, but the ninth season of the European Poker Tour is about to begin, and you don't even have to leave your house to play.

Today, PokerStars is releasing the very first satellites to the very first event of EPT Season 9. The EPT Barcelona festival will kick off on August 15th with the main event scheduled to begin on August 19th. Beginning today, you have a chance to win your seat for as little as €2.22 or 100 Frequent Player Points.

As you might have heard, the EPT is embarking on a different kind of journey this year. There are fewer events, but each tour stop will host a giant festival. When it's possible, the EPT will partner with regional tours in the area to offer tournaments for all bankrolls.

That's exactly what will happen in Barcelona as the EPT and Estrellas Poker Tours join hands for a massive two-week festival of poker.


Life's a beach in Barcelona

The Season 8 stop in Barcelona was a record-setter. When its epic heads-up battle was done, Germany's Martin Schleich had pocketed a first prize worth €850,000.

Now you have your chance to become a part of history as the EPT begins a new and improved season and looks to set more records in Barcelona.

Look under EVENTS and EPT in the PokerStars tournament lobby to find the satellite that's right for you.

See you in Barcelona!
