The first synchronised festival is going to start in 3 different venues; Gran Casino de Madrid, Casino Barcelona, and Casino Espinho, before heading back to Madrid for the final of the tournament.The Multi-Venue Series will kick off simultaneously on Thursday May 12 at the three venues for Day 1A, followed by Day 1B on Friday the May 13. The Main Event will continue with Day 2 and Day 3 on the 14th and 15th respectively. For the Final Days, the event will then move to Madrid on the 21st and 22nd of May with the last players competing for a €333,333 guaranteed prize pool.
The festival promises to be unique with many different types of games in all venues to satisfy players who want to joint the felt either in Madrid, Barcelona, or Espinho. A few satellites will be running at the casinos prior to the Main Event and players will find Super Stack, Omaha, Bounty or Super Turbo variants available.
Coming to the WPT National Iberia is the perfect occasion to choose your favorite spot between Espinho, Barcelona or Madrid to enjoy your stay during the festival. All three cities are fantastic to visit and very different from each other which offers great options for players before heading down to Madrid for the Final leg of the Main Event.
Madrid is an exceptional city for fashionistas, history lovers, and Metropolitan life addicts. Barcelona is a wonderful place to combine beaches, gastronomy, and history. Moreover, both Spanish cities are European football Capitals, and it would be the ideal chance to attend a football match. Players who are more keen to relax in a superb beach resorts, Espinho, located 15 minutes from Porto city center, is the ideal location with Hotel Solverde Spa & Wellness Center or Hotel Apartamento Solverde along the beaches.
The full schedule is available on the following links : Madrid, Barcelona, Espinho.
This original idea will come back in Iberia next October, playing in Madrid, Barcelona and having some changes in Portugal. In fact, the first 4 days are going to be at the Casino Vilamoura, and moving to Hotel Algarve Casino, in Praia da Rocha, for the Grand Final.
