New Online Poker Poker News

A bunch of different live tournaments are being postponed or cancelled due to the growing concerns of the COVID-19 outbreak, commonly referred to as the Coronavirus.

WPT Barcelona has been Postponed due to the Virus, with an official announcement on the Barcelona Casino website

“Following extensive discussions on the Coronavirus, Casino Barcelona and its partners the World Poker Tour and partypoker LIVE have together reluctantly taken the decision to postpone the upcoming WPT Barcelona festival which was due to take place March 27th – April 5th.

Like other countries, the Coronavirus is spreading in Spain and our priority is, and always will be, the safety and experience of players and staff. All three parties are currently exploring the possibility of holding the event later in the year.

Players who qualified online for the event via partypoker will have flexibility with their packages.”
