Season four of the European Poker Tour is set to kick off in late August with the EPT Barcelona Open, which will run from August 28th until September 1st 2007. The tournament will be taking place at the Casino Barcelona.
The buyin for the tournament will be 8000 pounds, and there will be a 600 person cap on the event. Considering the fact that Pokerstars is holding satellites for this event and also offering buy-in services for the event if you don't win via satellite, you should probably buy your seat now or risk having the event become sold-out, as I am sure it will be.
Because Pokerstars offers satellites and direct buy-ins for all of the EPT events, you can expect a great mix of well-known online players and live poker pros at the event. I am assuming that Daniel Negreanu, Greg Raymer and Joe Hachem will all be representing Pokerstars at the tournament, as will be Elky and Hevad "Rainkhan" Khan, who are also members of Team Pokerstars.
Then you will have your stellar crop of European professionals, a sprinkling of live poker pros from North America, and some of the best young talent in the game including the likes of Adam Junglen and possibly "actionjeff" Jeff Garza.
It should be a very exciting event, and it is always a treat to watch the dynamic between the older and younger players. Because you are only required to be 18 years of age to play this event, some of the younger phenoms such as Gobboboy and Actionjeff will be able to play this event.
