May 12, 2019inPoker

Full details are now with us for the EPT Open Madrid, which is playing out from June 22-30, 2019 at Casino Gran Madrid Torrelodones, on the outskirts of Spain’s majestic capital city.

The same venue played host to a memorable EPT Grand Final in 2011 and PokerStars Live returns for a 22-tournament festival including a €1,100 buy-in Main Event, with three starting flights.

PSPC Champion and PokerStars Ambassador Ramon Collilas will be the star attraction, but he can’t win them all. Time for you to put him in his place.
