EPT Barcelona starts today

EPT Barcelona starts today

Friday, 4 September 2009

Barcelona is the latest stop on the European Poker Tour and the Catalan capital looks set to attract some the top names in the game. A host of former EPT and WSOP bracelet winners will be trying to emulate Sebastian Ruthenberg who won the title last year.

Among those scheduled to line up today are WSOP Main Event champion Peter Eastgate, Daniel Negreanu, Bertrand ‘ElkY’ Grospellier, EPT Player of the Year Luca Pagano, Vanessa Rousso, Johnny Lodden and Dario Minieri.

Joining them will be Scotty Nguyen playing in Expekt.com colours for the first time. The 1998 WSOP Main Event winner was in confident mood after what has been a disappointing year by his standards. “It didn't go well at WSOP … Now I have reloaded and am back. I am really looking forward to the European trip and to playing in Barcelona. It will be great fun and my only goal there is to win."

The Main Event starts today and comes to a conclusion next Wednesday.
