<a href="http://www.rakerace.com/poker-rooms/pokerstars/" target="_blank" title="PokerStars Room Review"><strong><em>PokerStars</em></strong></a> <em>European Poker Tour</em> Season 7 has arrived to Barcelona, where the main event starts today, on 22nd November, 2010. The buy-in for the event that lasts until 27th November is &euro;5,300.
Apart from London and Copenhagen (and Monte Carlo, provided the Grand Finale will be held there), Barcelona is the only city that played host to an event in each of the EPT Seasons. In 2004, the buy-in was €1,000 and Swedish Alexander Stevic won the main event and the €80,000. In Season 6, entrees had to pay €8,000, resulting in the 478 participants creating a prize pool of €3,382,000; the winner was Carter Phillips, taking home €850.000.

This time, the buy-in is lowered to €5,000+€300. The tournament is held in the Casino de Barcelona (annex at The Arts Hotel), welcoming several of the poker world’s notable names, including Bertrand ‘ElkY’ Grospellier, Kevin Stani, Pierre Neuville, Stephen Chidwick and Arnaud Mattern.

The structure of the event is as usual: players start with 30,000 in chips, blinds begin at 50/100, antes enter at level 5. In the first qualification round, blinds increase in every hour, later in every 75 minutes.
