17 Records Broken At Season 11 EPT Barcelona

Record Breaker

If you have been following our coverage at the European Poker Tour Barcelona for the past couple of weeks, you may have heard that a number of records had been broken at the stop. However, you would probably have only heard about the big ones such as the fields that took part in the Main Event, Super High Roller and High Roller.

In fact, there were many more records broken, an amazing 17 of them in total.

Many would have expected a number of records to be broken considering the circumstances that the stop was to be a big celebration for the 100th Main Event final table which is to be played out today. However, the nature at which these records have been broken and in some cases smashed and the sheer number of them, surely exceeding the expectations of most of us and especially everybody involved.

Take a look at the long list of records that the Season 11 European Poker Tour Barcelona has broken since its start a couple of weeks ago.
