The first tournaments of 2015 have already begun and even more are scheduled for the second half of the year. One of the most anticipated events for Spanish players is the PokerStars Estrellas Poker Tour which is organized by the popular online poker room.
Professionals and amateurs have played in the previous five seasons and many more are expected to sit down at the tables when the tournament begins.
The Spanish popular live poker series will start at the beginning of spring, with the official dates being recently announced. Last year, a total of 2500 players participated and the prize pool was on the verge of heating €2.5 million, which marked a record for the series that started in 2010. Even better numbers are expected to be posted in 2015 and the Gran Casino Madrid will be the gracious host for the main event as well as the side tournaments.
The competition begins on March 9 and will conclude six days later, with the next tournament organized by PokerStars in Spain to start in June. The PokerStars Marbella Festival was another massive hit in 2014 and was included in the UKIPT circuit, which attracts players from all over Europe. The poker room has announced that in addition to the main event and the regular tournaments, there will also be plenty of satellites running live over the Internet.
Highrollers will be more interested about the events dedicated to them and there is one tournament included in every stop of the EPT. Even though we are still eight months away from the first top of the European Poker Tour, the
Barcelona series will set another milestone for European poker. In 2014, PokerStars tries to expand the scope and set new lucrative partnerships, with one of the potential associates being the GPI.
It is now official that the Global Poker Index is their latest partner and they will be running two distinct leader boards, dedicated to various events. The threshold will be set at $600, so those who buy-in for a bigger amount and those who participate in less expensive tournament will be clearly segregated. There is tremendous enthusiasm around this new partnership and the relation between the two companies has the potential of leading to a long-term agreement.
