EPT Barcelona, the first event of European Poker Tour Season 9, won Tournament of the Year at last night’s prestigious GPI European Poker Awards ceremony in Paris.

The event, which was held in August, was the first stop of the ninth season of the hugely successful European Poker Tour, and was the first to join forces with the PokerStars regional poker tour in Spain, the Estrellas Poker Tour. A total of 6,848 tournament entries across nearly 50 events generated a total prize pool in excess of €14 million at the 11-day festival.

EPT Barcelona also saw the introduction of a whole new look for the EPT, including super-slick branding with digital displays and spectacular TV set, the new PSLive registration system and a host of other improvements designed to give players the best live poker experience in the world.
