EPT 100: Barcelona Blowout

We are just one month away from the 100th European Poker Tour Main Event, and PokerStars is pulling out all the stops to celebrate. If you get involved now, you could end up spending an entire day in Barcelona with a member of Team Pro in a crazy competition.

Here's how it works:

If you win a seat to the EPT Barcelona Main event, you will get a ticket to the EPT100 Qualifiers' Freeroll on August 17. The top five finishers in that freeroll will get teamed up with a member of Team Pro for the EPT100 Barcelona Takedown. That's where things get really interesting.

On August 21 (Day 1a of EPT Barcelona ME) the five winners of the EPT100 Qualifiers' Freeroll will get together with their member of Team Pro for a mad dash across Barcelona. From photo scavenger hunts to jet ski races, the teams will all be building points for a tourney at the end of the day for some big prizes. On offer are three seats to EPT Barcelona side events.


1st = €2,000 + €200 Deepstack 8 Handed
2nd = €1,000 + €100 Turbo
3rd = €500 + €50 NLHE Deepstack

So, get to work on winning your seat to the Main Event to earn your EPT100 Qualifiers' Freeroll ticket. For more information, see the EPT100 Barcelona Freeroll & Takedown information page.


If you aren't fortunate enough to be one of the top five in the EPT100 Qualifiers' Freeroll, you still have a chance to win some prizes in Barcelona in the #EPT100Brag competition.

When qualifiers get to Barcelona, they will be given a special patch to wear. After that, it's up to them to take pictures of themselves with the patch and post them to Twitter and/or Instagram. Team Pro will then decide who took the best pictures and award an iPad mini and other VIP store items as prizes. You can find more details on the #EPT100Brag page.

You only have a few more weeks to win your seat and qualify for the competitions. Satellites are running all the time. So, get to work!
