The World Poker Tour has announced details of its second stop of the 2010/11 season, the WPT Spanish Championship.
The Casino Barcelona will once again be the venue for the €3,200+€300 buy-in event that takes place from 19th to 23rd May 2010. Super satellites take place at the same venue on 17th and 18th May. There will also be ample opportunities to qualify online. The Barcelona stop on the World Poker Tour has proved a popular one with the likes of Barry Greenstein, Gus Hansen, Annette Obrestad, Eric Seidel and Antonio Esfandiari experiencing the best that the Catalan capital has to offer. Previous winners of the prestigious title include Markus Lehmann, Casper Hansen and defending champion Randal Flowers. In addition to a hefty cash prize, the winner of this year’s tournament will also win a seat in the $25,500 buy-in for the 2011 WPT World Championship. “Casino Barcelona has been an incredible partner-- from player and partner servicing to tournament staff, their dedication to every detail is second to none,” said Rohin Malhotra, WPT Chief Executive Officer. “They will continue to be a key partner as we expand our presence in Spain, and we are looking forward to this wonderful event.”
