The World Poker Tour has announced that in addition to Venice and Marrakech they will also be holding events in Barcelona and Northern Cyprus this year. Casino Barcelona will host the €5,000+300 buy in WPT Spanish Championship from 24th to 30th June 2009. 253 players battled for a prize pool of almost $2million in last year’s event which was eventually won by Casper Hansen.
