Hit and Run: Neymar and Pique at EPT Barcelona; lilholdem remembered; NJ Loses Sports Betting Appeal

Staff : August 25th, 2015


EPT Barcelona generating terrific numbers including celebrities. Chad Batista has a memorial page on Facebook. Blom up seven-figures since Friday. And more.

EPT Barcelona continues to impress

Whether it’s the impressive numbers from the $50k Super High Roller or the Main Event (EPT and Estrellas), or the high-profile celebrities like Neymar Jr. and Gerard Pique participating in other side events, the EPT Barcelona has been one of the most successful tournament series in recent memory.

EPT Barcelona is quickly turning into one of poker’s most prestigious and popular stops, similar to the PokerStars PCA or Aussie Millions.

The other side of Chad Batista

People are complex individuals and perhaps no poker player exemplifies this better than Chad Batista. The poker world knew the brash, trash-talking, kid who would fly off the handle at a moment’s notice. But his friends and family knew a different Chad. A Chad that battled his demons but also was fun, dedicated, and caring. Someone who did some amazing things.

If you want to get to know the other Chad his family created a Facebook memorial page to celebrate a life cut way too short.
