Full Tilt Poker to Renew Espana Series

The first round of live poker tournaments in Spain was so popular for Full Tilt Poker that they have decided to keep it going for a second season. As a result, the Full Tilt Poker Espana Series is now back with at least four different dates being run.

The first tournament will take place in Gerona starting on April 25th and running through the 27th at the lovely Casino Castell de Peralada. Following on the heels of that will be a tournament in Malaga at the Casino Torrequebrada starting on June 4th and running through to June 6th. At that point, the series will pause in deference to the World Series of Poker, the main live poker tournament series in the game.

It won’t pause for long however as the Spanish capitol of Madrid will host a tournament at the Casino Gran venue that starts on August 27th and runs through to August 29th. Bringing up the rear and therefore rounding out the second season of Full Tilt Poker Espana will be the Barcelona Grand Final starting on December 2nd and continuing through to the 5th of the same month. The Casino Gran de Barcelona will host that event, giving the brand two out of the four events listed so far in this season’s Espana Series.

As with all good live poker tournaments sponsored by online poker sites, satellite tournaments are available for all of the Espana events. There is a $216 satellite tournament that gets players into a tournament with three prize packages offered and a $535 satellite tournament with 5 prize packages offered. The former will be held every Tuesday and Thursday while the latter will run on every Sunday.

For players that do not want to pay that much money for a chance at one of the seats, Full Tilt Poker naturally offers super satellite tournaments as well. The lowest buy-in at the moment is $5 and players will have to parlay that into multiple victories if they want to make their way into one of the larger satellite tournaments and win a prize package from them. It is harder, but of course it can be done.
