PokerStars Marbella Festival

PokerStars Marbella Festival

The ESPT and UKIPT join forces once again for another massive tournament festival at the Casino Marbella from June 14-19, 2016. Join players from across the UK, Spain and beyond for an unforgettable week on the Costa del Sol.

Located mere meters away from the sun-drenched beach, Casino Marbella is always a popular tournament destination, and the PokerStars Marbella Festival always attracts hundreds of players to the southern cost of Spain. Season 7 of the ESPT will be no exception.

In last year’s event, Spain’s Isidoro Barreña outlasted a field of more than 800 players to take home a top prize of more than €150,000, now it could be your turn.

Don’t miss another great festival with plenty exciting poker tournaments, including the €1,000€ + €100 Main Event, the €2,000 + €£200 High Roller, and the €300 + €30 Marbella Cup event.
