According to numerous reports, an online gambling affiliate convention poker tournament has been shut down by Barcelona police.

Police raided the Hotel Princesa in Barcelona Spain this weekend where the Casino Affiliate Programs (CAP) poker tournament was taking place.  (see news here)

All gambling equipment was confiscated.  Gambling911.com was also being told that the organizers were detained. 

The said tournament was the Affiliate Series of Poker. Last year, Bahamian authorities also prevented CAP from holding a tournament at an originally scheduled locale. Organizers had to find a "secret" place in which to hold the tournament.

Hundreds of online gambling industry personnel were present in Barcelona for the CAP conference though it was unclear how many were in attendance at the actual tournament.
