ONCHAN, Isle of Man -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- With just 38 days still to go, more than 230 players have already won seats to #EPT100 in Barcelona, the debut event of EPT Season 11. The historic 100th EPT kicks off mid-August and numbers already look set to beat last year’s EPT Barcelona Poker Festival record of 378 qualifiers.
Among those who have already secured full prize packages for this season’s event are a whole bunch of EPT champions including PokerStars-sponsored PCA winner Dominik Panka, Michael Tureniec, Ben Wilinofsky, Fred Jensen and Kent Lundmark. Others who have qualified online include Team PokerStars Pro Nacho Barbero, PokerStars Team Online’s Mickey Petersen and Full Tilt Poker Ambassador Jonathan Karamalikis.
More than 30 players a week have been winning seats to EPT Barcelona and, with the World Cup drawing to an end and the World Series of Poker now well underway, that number looks set to increase substantially over the coming weeks. There are now up to three satellites a day on PokerStars, with five satellites every Sunday – topping last season’s maximum of four a day. There are already more than 210 players qualified for Estrellas as well, with several players having won their seats to both the Estrellas and EPT Main Events.
