Follow the Tour on every stop
The festival in Barcelona was the most mass since the very first season. The record number of participants together with Estrellas Poker Tour turns it into a long-awaited event for all poker players. The greatest debates caused the announcement of the stop in Dublin — Irish capital and the largest city. A similar stage of the fourth season has already passed here, and it gets the same dates as the stage in Deauville earlier— soon after PCA. As the press release of the EPT informs, “the festival will be held together with the UK & Ireland Poker Tour in Royal Dublin Society, in only several minutes of driving from the center of Dublin”.
The other stops will be in Malta, Prague, PCA and Monte-Carlo. They were already presented in the 11th season when Malta debuted in the tour with a huge success, and the main tournament with the buy-in of €5,300 brought together nearly 900 participants.
