PokerStars EPT Barcelona Main Breaks All Attendance Records

For the first time ever, the EPT Main Event surpassed 2000 entries, and by the time the registration was done, the total climbed to an impressive 2294.

The 2022 EPT Barcelona Main Event will enter history as the largest-ever EPT Main Event organized by PokerStars. The organizers were stunned by the total number of entries at the start of Day 2, as the tournament clock showed 2294.

This is an important landmark for PokerStars as no other EPT Main Event reached the magical 2000 number. The tournament came close to breaking that barrier in 2019, also in Barcelona, but it fell just short, with a total of 1988 entries.

Of course, with such a big field comes a massive prize pool. The 2022 EPT Barcelona Main Event will award just shy of €11.5 million, and the winner will become €1.7 million richer.
