This must be a fantastic place to go and play poker and i would love to be there one day. I went to Barcelona for the football years ago and i can thoroughly recommend this beautiful city to anyone

I've been to Barcelona a some years ago when I spent a couple weeks in Spain during high school. The last thing I would want to do in this city is sitting at a table for days and playing poker - there's just so much thing do/see here instead.

Another series from 888poker for the ones that have relatively deep pockets
playing poker Smile
The buy ins are high here, but there are also satellites for these tournaments.
How lucky can you be, in order to win a ticket, starting with a one cent
satellite? Smile Many will try their luck starting from there Smile

Barcelona Undoubtedly one of the most beautiful cities in the world, so visiting Barcelona in any case will give you great pleasure in being in this beautiful city. And if you still play your favorite game. It’s just a fairy tale. that is the beyond.

Online poker players in Europe must try to get in Barcelona and to play in these tournaments because is a beautiful location and you have a lot to visit there. The one who won last year is is a Romanian citizen but another ethnicity. 114k is a beautiful amount and this year perhaps the gain will be higher.
 bowie198419/04/2019 23:14:30 GMT
Altough the unlimited re-entry for four days straight will sure make some players headaches down the line I mean I hate it when an online tournament does this for hours, now imagine it live through multiple days. Neverending story.
 dule-vu20/04/2019 09:53:54 GMT
now I dont know,do other poker sites have also big live tournaments in barcelona or now only 888 poker have it?!I know that poker stars had this big tournaments and some other site if I remembers!poker sites fight for every town,to have this kind of tornament or to be sposnor!
this probably will be big tournament,with lot of players and money on table!
 CALICUL20/04/2019 14:27:57 GMT
Pokerstars had satellites for the biggest live series from the world but with the time other rooms started to capture that domain. 888 Poker or Party Poker they signed contracts and now deal with certain series. I think all big poker rooms should have satellites for these series and players to be as many as possible.
 Gerimantas20/04/2019 19:50:35 GMT
I read about all tournaments in this Barcelona 888 poker live tourn and what I like is that buyins not big and you can play a tournament in schedule for pay only 50 euros buyin! wow that even I can do, and it is also good place to relax if you are out of tournament quick.
 dule-vu21/04/2019 10:48:04 GMT
barcelona is great place for this kind of tournament!great city,history,great weather and to play poker beside this,its just plus!not a big buy in for this smaller tournament below this main list and this would be interesting for smaller player!every player have something for himself!
 CALICUL21/04/2019 14:51:11 GMT
Minus voting contradicts me that it's not good for these poker rooms to make more satellites for live tournaments. This is unbelievable. Probably those tournaments have a limited number of players, from the point of this man who voted me with minus. I think it's okay with many satellites for the joy of many players and to play live poker with a extra vacation. Smile
 damosk22/04/2019 08:51:25 GMT
In my list of places to go and play poker, Barcelona is way up their near to the top spot. It would be great to be part of this promotion, however even if i won a ticket i would not be able to go this year to this event due to family commitments. I hope we will see some mobsters with stories to tell here in the forum of their adventures in this event in Barcelona.
 CALICUL22/04/2019 15:09:03 GMT
This is not a problem because you have the opportunity to play several times per year in Europe, if you love live tournaments. You have more opportunities or options to choose. You have a variety of live tournaments games and good luck for you for the next time. Smile
