The EPT Bacelona main event began on Saturday and already the 2 starting days are in the books. In total, the main event attracted a field of 811 players and 407 of them have chips left and will return to the tables today. Guillaume Darcourt, from France, finished 35th in the World Series of Poker main event this summer and now he's the EPT Barcelona chip leader with 195,300. As you can see in the picture, it's not hard to spot out the chip leader among the other players.
Unfortunately big names such as Daniel Negreanu, Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier, Dario Mineri and Viktor "Isildur1" Blom won't be returning to the tables today, but there are still quite a few notables left fighting for the amazing €850,000 first prize! Anyhow, 120 of the remaining 407 players will walk away with a share of the €4,055,000 prize pool.
We will return with an update as soon as Day 2 comes to an end.
