The sights and sounds of Barcelona are like no other in the world. It's a cosmopolitan city that also proudly boasts links to antiquities from the Middle Ages. It's a city where visitors are enthralled by renowned architect Antonio Gaudi's iconic Basilica de la Sagrada Familia, famous for its ornate gothic beauty, while they alternately revel in his modern-day fantasyland Park Guell, with its sculptures, stairways, and mythic tiled creatures.
And in the month of August, it's a city that will be famous once again for hosting one of the most talked about and enjoyable stops on the poker circuit--the PokerStars European Poker Tour to be held there August 15 -25.
As part of the very popular event, PokerStars Women Live is hosting a women's tournament August 17-20. Five tournament packages valued at €2000 will be awarded to make the trip a dream come true for the players who qualify. The package includes the tournament's €500 buy-in, three night's accommodations at Hotel Arts Barcelona and €720 in travel expenses. To make the trip more accessible for all players, daily satellites are running now starting at €2.20. In addition, seat only satellites will run from July 29-August 12 with 11 guaranteed. As if that's not enough there's a daily freeroll satellite to get into the qualifiers every day at 15:15 ET.
So now's the time now to claim your seat so you can start planning for the upcoming trip. There is so much to see and do in Barcelona you'll want to make sure to plan ahead to fit it all in.
