PokerStars EPT returns to Barcelona (Aug 8 – 21)
In Las Vegas, the WSOP is being played and in Tallinn, our sister site is hosting The Festival. But let's turn our eyes to the future for a moment, to August. That's when the European Poker Tour will once again have a stop in Barcelona. After almost three years of pandemic abstinence, PokerStars' biggest and most important EPT stop is back on the schedule.
From August 8 to 21, the EPT will be played in Barcelona. PokerStars has now published the complete schedule for the tournament. A total of 61 events are on the menu, and the €5,300 Main Event will of course be the main attraction of the tournament.
Other key tournaments at PokerStars EPT Barcelona will be the €10,200 Mystery Bounty to kick off the event and the €100,000 Super High Roller, which will be one of the most expensive tournaments in Europe this year.
Those are the top events:
- August 8 - 9 - €10,200 Mystery Bounty
- August 9 - 14 - €1,100 ESPT Main Event
- August 14 - 15 - €2,200 ESPT High Roller

Return to the EPT's Place of Origin
With the return to Barcelona, the EPT comes back to its roots. The first ever EPT event was held in Barcelona in 2004 and since then Barcelona has always been one of the most important stops of the poker tour.
The last time the tournament was played was in 2019 and at that time, Swede Simon Brandstrom prevailed in a field of 1,988 players. Almost 10 million euros in prize money was distributed in that tournament. It is not unlikely that this sum will be breached this August.
The complete schedule of the PokerStars EPT Barcelona is available on PokerStarsLive.
The next big dates for the PokerStars Live Tour will be EPT Prague in December and the Pokerstars Caribbean Adventure in the Bahamas at the end of January 2023, where the PokerStars Players Championship will be held again - a $25,000 tournament that is likely to play out over $20,000,000 in prize money. Players can qualify for this cheaply via the PSPC Mega Path or Live Pass. We've explained how that works here: How to get a $30k PokerStars Players Championship ticket for cheap.
