Real money poker fans around the world are hyped for the 2022 EPT Barcelona Festival. It’s slated to play out from the 8th of August up to 21st of August. It’s also predicted to be the biggest EPT tournament that has ever taken place in Barcelona. All eyes are set on this real poker USA tournament, but there’s another event that’s about to take place.

What we’re talking about, of course, is the Spanish Poker Championship. It’s slated to take place from 25th of July up to 8th of August. This event will be played out in a series of satellites and tournaments. The best part is that the buy-ins are varied. This means that the majority of poker USA players will get a chance to play.

Another great news for poker players comes in the form of unlimited re-entries. This means that you can reenter the event if not everything goes to plan at the outset. There are also solid blind structures for the satellites and tournaments at CEP.

The 2022 EPT Barcelona Festival Main Events

There’s not just one, but four different main events at CEP. The first one goes by the name of Mini Main Event. The buy-in for this tournament is €200. Then comes the Main Event with a €500 buy-in. Next in line is the High Roller event, with a €1,100 buy-in. Finally, we have the Super High Roller event with €2,200 as a buy-in.

All the tournaments and events at CEP are scheduled for the evening. This will give players the time to rest, relax and do some sightseeing in Barcelona before playing.

Past CEP Events

Even though the CEP was scrapped in 2022 and 2021, the tournament has gotten back on track in 2022. There have been some outstanding champions that have played the best poker hands. The reigning and defending champion from 2019 is Fabien Lecardonnel. His heads-up match against David Dubuisson ended in a resounding victory for Lecardonnel. He managed to win €110,000 – a bigger sum than his opponent’s €85,000.

The prior champion was Fabrice Jaquot, who won the tournament in February 2019. He managed to beat 872 players to the throne and he won €62,500 as a prize.

All this makes the EPT Barcelona Festival one of the best poker sites in the world. We know that the tournament will be as thrilling as ever this time around, as well. Regardless if you’re playing or just watching, we know that you’ll have a blast at this year’s EPT.
