While you wouldn’t confuse EPT Barcelona for the pitch, there are certainly a higher-than-usual number of footballers at the tournament this week.
Brazilian legend Ronaldo, one of the PokerStars SportStars, touched down in Barcelona for his first EPT event.
The retired footballer did a few interviews with the media before taking a seat at a special “Phenomenon Table” with several qualifiers from PokerStars.es.
Meanwhile current Spanish international Gerard Piqué took a seat in the Main Event. Piqué is no stranger to poker tournaments, playing EPT Barcelona last year and also making an appearance at the WSOP Main Event this summer.
