Among the life axioms in which you can trust, count on these: When Keith Richards shows up, you know it's a real party, and when Barry Greenstein shows up, you know it's a real poker tournament.
Today, if you didn't trust it to be true, know this: the Eureka Poker Tour is the real deal. We've just learned that Greenstein himself is confirmed to attend the first event of Eureka's second season in Croatia.
Twenty-seven days from now, Eureka will start Season 2 at the Golden Sun Casino in Zagreb. The €1,100 main event will highlight a five day festival of tournaments suited for any bankroll.
In the middle of it all will be the Robin Hood of Poker himself, Barry Greenstein.
Greenstein will be the second international poker superstar in recent years to hit the Eureka tour. Last season, Chris Moneymaker showed up for battle. Now, Greenstein's appearance has the folks in the region ready to invite a lot of people along for the ride.
Beginning tomorrow, Eureka will be running a large series of promotions aimed at helping you join The Bear in Croatia. On both the Eureka Poker Tour Twitter and Facebook accounts, your retweets and shares will enter you into random drawings for tickets to Eureka Croatia. Then, on March 19, the Eureka social media wizards will be accepting questions for a Barry Geenstein Q&A session. If Greenstein answers your question, you'll win an entry into the Eureka Croatia with Barry Greenstein Weekly Final Tournament.
Those weekly finals have more value than you might expect. Running on Sundays between now and the event, winners will get a package for Eureka Croatia, a hotel room, and expense cash.The winners also receive an invitation to the Masterclass with Barry G.
