2018 EPT Barcelona Recap: Pics and Video

Over my time at the 2018 EPT Barcelona, I took a number of pictures to help me remember the great times I had there. I’ve curated them through multiple Tweets and pictures and have also published a video highlight clip to help capture what the entire experience was like.

I hope you enjoy experiencing the trip “through my eyes” and that it’ll perhaps convince you that attending Europe’s largest annual poker festival in Barcelona is a worthwhile proposition.

Before and After, with Jaime Staples: How Life Has Changed Since His Physical Transformation

At the 2018 EPT Barcelona, I caught up with the “new and improved” PokerStars ambassador Jaime Staples. After having transformed his physical appearance winning a bet with Bill Perkins, I dove deep with Jaime to see how that affected his day-to-day life, his poker play, and overall outlook.

We also discussed how his personal transformation inspired the idea for him to give away a Platinum Pass. I hope you enjoy watching this video interview, with transcript also included.

Interview with Igor Kuganov

PokerStars ambassador Igor Kurganov is giving away a Platinum Pass to someone who can successfully navigate the gauntlet of mind-bending quizzes that he and his girlfriend, fellow PokerStars ambassador Liv Boeree, have compiled.

In this interview, taken at the 2018 EPT Barcelona, we turn the tables on Igor and see if he can handle a little quiz that we put together just for him. Enjoy this video, with accompanying transcript.

What Lies Beyond the Poker Room?

Living a Cardplayer Lifestyle affords poker players with tremendous freedom as well as the opportunity to travel the world playing the game they love. It’s important, however, to not just limit what you see to the inside of casinos and poker rooms, and to also enjoy the great places you travel to for poker.

While covering the 2018 EPT Barcelona, I took a day off to explore the city. This post details the sights and sounds that greeted me, and relates my experiences better than any pictures could capture.

2018 EPT Barcelona – Meet the PokerStars Live Team

A huge team of PokerStars staff is out in full force at the 2018 EPT Barcelona making sure that all of the events being held as part of the festival are running smoothly. To help attach some names and faces to the otherwise “nameless and faceless,” I thought it would be nice to chat with a few of them and briefly tell their stories.

Let’s get to know some members of the PokerStars live events team and together appreciate the great work they do to help facilitate Europe’s largest poker festival of the year.
