Barcelona poker event is a December highlight

The 200,000 euro guaranteed Christmas Poker Series at Casino Barcelona from December 9 until December 22 will showcase the best of poker, with affordable buy-ins and great holiday weather.

Poker News reports that Barcelona is one of the most majestic cities in the world, regardless of the time of year and certainly won’t disappoint during Christmas with the casino located steps away from the beach.

The festival features dozens of action-packed tournaments and satellites with buy-ins ranging from 12 euro to 750 euro.

The highlight of the festival is the Christmas Poker Series 300 euro Main Event on December 11.

The tournament is a deep-stacked affair with players starting off with 30,000 in chips and four opening flights on December 11 to 14.

Blinds increased from 45 to 50 minutes throughout the tournament, except during the final Turbo Day 1d flight, where blinds move along faster at 20-minute increments.

Players will have plenty of opportunities to build a monster stack as not only is the structure great, but players can re-enter an unlimited amount of times until late registration closes at the conclusion of Level 14, which coincides with the second blind level of Day 2 on December 14.

Those surviving the second day will compete for one more final day of action on December 15, until a winner is crowned.

Although the 300 euro price tag should prove affordable to most players, you can get into the event much cheaper with a plethora of satellites with buy-ins ranging from 12 euro to 60 euro.

More than the Main Event in Barcelona

The Main Event is the biggest attraction of the festival, but there are plenty of other multi-day events littered on the schedule.

For those on a more limited budget, the Christmas Poker Series 85 euro Christmas Cup on December 15-20, the Christmas Poker Series No Clock (December 18 and 10)) and e the Christmas Poker Series 200 euro Second Chance (December 20-22) are other available events.

Players with bigger budgets weren’t left out as there will be the two-day Christmas Poker Series 750 euro High Roller on December 16 and 17.
