Cracking PokerStars Festival in Marbella next week

By Mad Harper

It’s less than a week to go before the start of PokerStars Festival Marbella in the South of Spain. This highly anticipated stop, running June 19-25, promises to be another massive festival with €1 Million guaranteed for the total prize pool.

 

MainEventTravel has loads of great hotels in Marbella including the Melia, Westin and Vincci, and this is fantastic time to visit – not too hot and not in the school holidays!

 

PokerStars Festival Marbella replaces the hugely-popular Estrellas Poker Tour stop in Marbella which last year attracted 844 players for the Main Event. British player Jonathan Schuman won close to €100,000 last year for his best ever cash and first Spanish flat on his Hendon Mob page.  This year’s Main Event comes with a €700k guarantee and runs June 21-25.

 

  • PokerStars MegaStack: June 19-21, 2017 - €170
  • PokerStars Festival Main Event: June 21-25, 2017 - €1,100 (€700,000 guaranteed)
  • PokerStars Festival High Roller: June 23-24, 2017 - €2,200 (€200,000 guaranteed)

  • Super Deepstack Turbo Estrellas Edition: June 25, 2017 - €170
  • Sunday Hyperturbo: June 25, 2017 - €550

 

Casino Marbella is located in the luxurious Puerto Banus marina – a must-visit location on Spain’s gorgeous Andalucia coast. Marbella is super easy and cheap to get to as well! There are direct flights to Málaga from the nearly 20 UK & Ireland airports as well as direct links from all over Europe.

As well as exciting action at the tournament tables, there’s a ton of fun off-the-felt activites planned as well including a pool-side Player Party for all Main Event players, the chance to meet Team PokerStars Pros and great PokerStars merchandise – not to mention the sun-drenched beach and Marbella’s famous nightlife!

Following Marbella, PokerStars Festival will be helding to Korea in July, Manila in August and Uruguay in September.
