The casino is 30 minutes outside of Madrid, in a small town called Torrelodones, and accessible by PokerStars shuttles.
The casino entrance.
After the last robbery on the EPT security is definitely taken seriously.
Casino entrance hall, complete with ridiculous chandelier.
Obligatory weird Spanish art.
The PokerStars welcome desk.
Shamballa Jewels, official sponsor of the EPT. The winner of the grand final took home a $22,000 Shamballa champion bracelet.
The tournament room.
Take your seat.
The dealers are ready.
Entrance to the TV table room.
Inside the cameras wait.
The Mandalay room with television set-up.
The TV Table.
Made for TV.
Lights, camera, action.
Down the stairs we find the press room.
And many a poker journalist.
The poker media runs on free spreads like this.
The outdoor garden, host to many an open bar.
Food, drink, sun.
And of course BBQ.
