I will be back in Spain next week to #punishthespanish because they still deserve it :D
After a stop at CNP Estoril recently, I am now attending the Poker Room Of Spa Roller Coaster Festival in Belgium before leaving to Madrid next Wednesday for the finals of the CNP GRAN FINAL.
The festival is already in full swing since the 16th of this month and you can follow the action on their Facebook page or on the Laroush Events page.
The CNP Estoril is come to an end last night with the last three win in the MAIN EVENT, the LIGA DO POQUER NACIONAL and the WIN THE BUTTON. All recaps are online on the Casino Estoril Poker Facebook page where I have published daily notes and photo albums.
I only arrived on Thursday but PokerPT was on the spot for the whole week providing a proper and extensive coverage including more photos and video content.
Big up to Pedro for winning the Main Event!! He is clearly one of the ones on the good side of the Poker Force :) I met him in the 45°C heat of a caliente summer festival in Madrid during the summer of 2017. Since then, it's always a pleasure to cross his path. He bested a field of 149 entries with more than €14.5k on top!
I have uploaded a photo archive of my stay at Casino Estoril last week for those who care. It can be found on my Flickr account.
The Poker Belgique Monster 2018 is over with a Main Event that gathered 835 entries and unstoppable champion, Sébastien Hetzel, who is just having an incredible end of 2018 at Poker Belgique since a few weeks.
My photo archive (+200 photos) is available on my Flickr account and you can view Jonathan Koszulap's coverage under www.pokerbelgique.be.
After a pleasant week in the Netherlands hopping from Holland Casino to Holland Casino in Breda, Amsterdam and Zandvoort where I enjoyed an almost 10-km on the autumn beaches [photos on my Flickr] on Wednesday, I made my way to Namur in Belgium for the PokerBelgique Monster Tournament finals over the weekend.
Last minute changes for this week! Although I decided to stop working as a #pokernamur reporter after the Namur MegaStack in September, I still intended to come over for the Oktoberfest this week to play cash games and shoot some photography for the Namur Poker room but the board took the bizarre last minute decision not to let me shoot at the casino anymore at all since I am not reporting officially for them.
As a result, I decided to enjoy my time on the BeNeLux roads this weekend starting with the Friday event at the Poker Room of Spa before moving on to the Breda Small Ball Series for the weekend.
Off to Amsterdam from Sunday night or Monday morning after that before the Monster Tournament finals for PokerBelgique in Namur before a few days of family time in Luxembourg and I will be back in Belgium later in November as well for the #PROS Roller Coaster Festival after a short hop to Portugal for the CNP Estoril.
Beside the daily cash games 1/2 NLHE > 5/10 PLO and the weekly MTTs, Casino Estoril regularly teams up with external partners like the Spanish Poker Festival in September and there are two more major Poker rendez-vous to come for this winter!
The CNP Estoril 6>11 Nov & the GPS Estoril 3>9 Dec.

Less than a month to go before the return of the Spanish Poker Festival to Rozvadov with a Winter Edition from 28th January to 4th February but there is also a lot of action already announced in Spain by various Poker promoters.
CNP & LPS have announced most of their 2018 stops already with tournaments all over Iberia and GPS will also be back with Silver Poker Series in January and February before a Golden Poker Series stop at Casino Gran Madrid in March.
The promoters of the SPF at King's will also be active on home soil with a bunch of events scheduled for the beginning of the New Year like the Spanish Winter Series in Castellon until 7th January, the Levante Poker Challenge also taking place at Casino Gran Madrid in mid-January before the SPF at King's. Soon after, another event will take place at Casino de Mallorca and another Levante Poker Challenge stop is planned from 23rd to 25th February at the Gran Casino Extremadura.
Let's get our credit cards ready to book flights and accommodation :p
