not sure this is gonna be a hit, as fakiry mentioned economical climate is not the best in spain atm, marocco seems like an odd place for a poker event too- anyway all the new initiatives are welcome, since i like dudes who are doing something instead of just talking, but they will not have it easy to fill the tour with players

888 have just finished a Morocco poker promo which starts next weekend at a CAsino hotel. They have also just started a promo for Valencia too. Sattelite buyins at 30c step 1 and only another step to go till you get to the final so not a bad deal overall. Dunno about CIRSA tho!

I think the reasons for which these two countries were selected are pretty obvious really...
First of all in Spain after the spanish gov started to tax online poker the live events are more appreciated and Morocco simply because it's a stunning country(especially during the cold season in Europe ).
