EPT Barcelona - Day 1a is over: The poker gods turned against De Melo

Day 1a of EPT Barcelona attracted a field of 263 players. At the end of the day 137 players had survived and they will now have a 1 day break before it's time for Day 2. The one who will bring the most chips, 217,700, to Day 2 from Day 1a is an unknown player called Loic Sa. Loic Sa has only won about $8-9k before this tournament, so we can only wish him the best of luck with the rest of the tournament!

Most interesting hand during Day 1a was for sure the all-in between Team PokerStars Sportstar Fatima Moreira De Melo and Team PokerStars Pro Alexandre Gomes. Fatima pushed all-in with 3 of a kind, and Gomes called with a flush draw/royal flush draw. The turn card gave Fatima a full house, and Gomes turned to the poker gods for help. BAM! Gomes one outer landed on the river and gave him a royal flush. De Melo had been eliminated from the tournament! De Melo looked a bit chocked when she left the casino, and who can blame her for that!?

Today's field will include Team PokerStars Pros Daniel Negreanu, Liv Boeree, Nacko Barbero, Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier and new Team Prro gteho Jorgensen from Denmark. Day 1b of the EPT Barcelona Main Event will for sure be much more interesting to follow than Day 1a, and most probably we will have a new chip leader when Day 1b comes to an end. *Fingers crossed*
