In their latest Bonus Cut video over at PokerStars.tv, PokerStars go back in time in order to take a look at the start of this European Poker Tour season at the EPT Barcelona. This was the time where players were able to celebrate not only the end of Season 9 and the start of Season 10, but also the EPT Awards for the previous Season which also culminated in the usual PokerStars party.
The awards ceremony brought out many famous faces on the poker circuit and it eventually handed out seven awards. The fact that the seven awards were all won by players from seven different countries just goes to show the global reach that the game has now created.
The award that got the biggest applause on the night was that of the one handed to Thor Hansen. Despite the Norwegian pro battling cancer he was delighted to accept the award on behalf of all Norwegian players when Norway won the ‘Best Country’ category.
Will this part be beaten at the start of Season 11 of the EPT? We are sure there will be extra stops pulled out to ensure it is considering EPT Season 11 Barcelona will also be celebrating the 100th Main Event.
