By Mad Harper

The popular MEGASTACK, PokerStars’ live poker series aimed at recreational players, is expanding to Iberia with new €40,000 guarantee stops confirmed in Valencia, Estoril and Madrid.

 

The low buy-in poker tournaments kicked off in London last April, and were quickly expanded to Ireland, Belgium, and France. MEGASTACK has now attracted a total over 4,800 entries at events across Europe.

 

The new stops on the Iberian peninsula will continue the popular MEGASTACK cheap-and-deep formula with 50,000 chips awarded for just a €170 buy-in. MEGASTACK Valencia will run September 13–17 at Casino Cirsa Valencia while the MEGASTACK Estoril takes place October 4–8 at Casino Estoril. The MEGASTACK Madrid stop is from December 7–10; all MEGASTACK stops have a €170 buy-in and €40k guarantee.

 

The first MEGASTACK coming up is La Grand Motte MEGASTACK in France from September 7-10; then it’s Valencia, followed by Namur MEGASTACK from September 13-17 and Sheffield MEGASTACK from September 22-24.

 

MEGASTACKS are designe to offer recreational players the chance to experience the excitement of a live poker event– and hone their skills – without breaking the bank.

 

Team PokerStars Pro and Olympic gold medalist Fatima Moreira de Melo said: “MEGASTACK may only be a small tournament series, but we don’t want that to stop players’ imaginations from running wild. We are really excited to be bringing the fun and affordable MEGASTACK series to people who want to experience live poker action across Spain and Portugal.”
