EPT, the European Poker Tour Barcelona has set a new record as the biggest stop in the EPT’s 16-year history.
EPT Barcelona drew more than 22,026 registrations over 12 days of live poker action at Casino Barcelona between August 20 and September 1, and awarded more than €52.9 million to players from 95 different countries.
The €5,300 buy-in Main Event field also became the biggest in EPT history when it attracted 1,988 entries. It broke the previous record of 1,931, set at last year’s EPT Barcelona. Swedish player Simon Brandstrom conquered the field to take home €1,290,166 of the €9,641,800 prize pool.
The €1,100 buy-in National event made it into the record books after drawing in 4,682 entries, the biggest turn-out since the event’s introduction in 2012. The previous record was set in 2017, when the National drew 4,557 entries. Markku Komplimaa, from Estonia, emerged victorious to claim the €585,500 top prize.
