PokerStars Ups The Ante With Technology

 

When the chips are down Tech Trends is there.

Tech Trends is at PokerStars European Poker Tour Barcelona this weekend on the blazing hot Mediterranean coast to see how the high stakes and high rolling world of cards is taking advantage of new technology to engage its audience. Sponsored by PokerStars.es this event is part of a much larger European Poker Tour organised by PokerStars that includes Sochi, Monte Carlo & Prague.

Check out the action for yourself on PokerStars TV and watch out for more from the event on Tech Trends over the next few days and if I haven’t lost my passport along with my shirt I will be back in the office Monday.
