In addition to their cash prize and trophy, the new champion will also receive a stunning watch from luxury Swiss brand SLYDE, the Official Watch Sponsor for EPT Season 11 Main Events and High Rollers.

Joining forces with the Estrellas Poker Tour once again, the EPT11 Barcelona Poker Festival features 44 events at Casino Barcelona including the €1,100 Estrellas Main Event, the €5,300 EPT Main Event and the prestigious €50k Super High Roller.
