WPT Barcelona set to be Europe’s biggest poker festival

By Mad Harper

In less than two weeks, The World Poker Tour will be making its way to the glorious city of Barcelona in Spain, for a fortnight of sun, sand, poker and maybe the odd sangria! This year’s WPT Barcelona is set to be the largest poker festival Europe has ever seen. Powered by partypokerLIVE, Casino Barcelona will host WPT500, WPTDeepStacks and World Poker Tour events with a combined guarantee of over €5,500,000.

MainEventTravel is the WPT’s Official Travel Partner and has tons of accommodation options available close to the tournament venue including the stunning Hotel Arts right above the casino, and the luxury Pullman Skipper just around the corner. Cheaper options include the popular hotels such as the Ibis, H10 and NH Barcelona Diagonal.

The WPT Barcelona festival gets underway with the WPT500 Barcelona – a €500 + €50 event which comes with a huge €1 million guarantee. Following three online flights, the live Day 1s begin at Casino Barcelona on March 8. There’s one rebuy allowed per day, with players getting a hefty 30,000 starting stack and 30 minute levels.

The €3,000 + €300 WPT Barcelona Main Event has two online Day 1s before the live Day 1s start on March 11. This flagship tournament has a massive €3,000,000 guarantee and is certain to attract a huge number of big name pros.

If that buy-in price seems a bit out of range, the €1,350 + €150 WPTDeepStacks Barcelona tournament could be the one to go for – and there’s plenty of chances to enter. There are two starting flights on March 14, two more on March 15 and a six-handed Day 1e turbo on March 16. The WPT Deepstacks has a €1 million guarantee, with players getting a 30k starting stack and 40 minute levels.

The festival also includes a €200 + €20 Ladies Event on March 16, a two-day €5,000 + €300 High Roller starting March 16 and a €1,000 + €100 Pot Limit Omaha tournament on the final day of the festival – March 17.

A further highlight of the schedule is, of course, the WPT Players Party which will take place on March 14 in the partypoker Live lounge a La Taverna café from 10pm – 2am. The theme of the party is Great Gatsby/Masquerade – so plenty of fun in store at that get-together.
