We are now just a matter of days away from the hugely anticipated European Poker Tour season opener Barcelona poker festival. Season 11 of the EPT not only brings another great catalogue of events to look forward too but also the 100th Main Event which is going to be played this very month in Barcelona.
This is of course being celebrated by PokerStars and the European Poker Tour, one hundred main events is certainly no mean feat at all for any poker tour.
There is going to be a party to remember and a number of promotions for players to get involved with including the #EPT100 Barcelona Blowout where players have the chance at teaming up with PokerStars Team Pros to undergo challenges in Barcelona.
The latest of these promotions though comes from PokerStars partnering with Fantasy Poker Manager from the Global Poker Index to bring you Fantasy Poker Manager For EPT100.
People that take part will select players from the Fantasy Poker Manager database that they feel will do well in two events in Barcelona. The two events are the Main Event and Super High Roller and those who take part in the promotion can select any player as long as one of them is a PokerStars Team Pro.
There will be separate rankings for both the events, with the top five teams in each walking away with some top quality prizes. First place in each will win a national tour package worth a healthy €2,000 whilst those in the remaining places will win a €100 online ticket.
The first event will be the Super High Roller that starts on the 23rd of August and you are able to start selecting your teams right now. You can also trade your player’s right up until Day of the event starts. Once that event finishes up you can then turn your attention to that of the Main Event which starts on the 21st of August.
We will of course be following both of these events as well as the High Roller at EPT Barcelona and will also let you in on who has been making waves in the many side events at the popular EPT stop. The action will actually start with the partnering Estrellas Poker Tour Main Event which starts tomorrow at 12pm local time.
So to keep up with everything that is going down in sunny Spain, be sure to check in with us from time to time.
