Take Your Poker Holiday to Casino Barcelona for the Christmas Poker Series

Christmas Poker Series

Are you looking for a poker holiday in December with affordable buy-ins and great weather?

Look no further than the €200,000 guaranteed Christmas Poker Series taking place at Casino Barcelona on Dec. 9-22. Barcelona is one of the most majestic cities regardless of the time of year and certainly won't disappoint during Christmas with the casino located steps away from the beach.

The festival features dozens of action-packed tournaments and satellites with buy-ins ranging from just €12 to €750! Of course, there will also be cash games at a variety of limits and games running around the clock during the festival.

Christmas Poker Series Main Event

The highlight of the festival is the Christmas Poker Series €300 Main Event on Dec. 11-15.

The tournament is a deep-stacked affair with players starting off with 30,000 in chips and four opening flights on Dec. 11-14. Blinds increase from 45 to 50 minutes throughout the tournament except during the final Turbo Day 1d flight where blinds move along faster at 20-minute increments.

Players will have plenty of opportunities to build a monster stack as not only is the structure great but players can reenter an unlimited amount of times until late registration closes at the conclusion of Level 14, which coincides with the second blind level of Day 2 on Dec. 14.

Those surviving the second day will compete for one more final day of action on Dec. 15 until a winner is crowned.

Although the €300 price tag should prove affordable to most players, you can get into the event much cheaper with a plethora of satellites with buy-ins ranging from just €12 to €60.

Other Multi-day Events

While the Main Event is the biggest attraction of the festival, there are plenty of other multi-day events littered on the schedule.

For those of you on a more limited budget, you might want to consider the Christmas Poker Series €85 Christmas Cup (Dec. 15-20), the Christmas Poker Series No Clock (Dec. 18-19) where the average stack will be 40 big blinds throughout the event, and the Christmas Poker Series €200 Second Chance (Dec. 20-22).

Players with bigger budgets weren't left out as there will be the two-day Christmas Poker Series €750 High Roller on Dec. 16-17. Even if on a budget, you can still play this event as you can get in via phased tournaments for €85 and satellites for €110.
