After 3 days of play, PokerStars' European Poker Tour Barcelona main event player field has been narrowed down from 1082 players to only 61. Day 4 will begin in a few hours with Antonio Duda as the chip leader (1.47 million), closely followed by Samuel Rodriquez (1,141,600). In third place is no one else other than the Finnish high-stakes guru Ilari Sahamies with 1,269,000 chips, followed by John Juanda (968k) and Fatima Moreira de Melo (955k) in 4th and 5th place, so expect Day 4 to be something special! 

All of the remaining players are guaranteed to walk away with €11,550 each. The 9 players who make it to the final table will be guaranteed at least €55,100 each. However, no one will probably be happy with that amount since the first prize is an astounding €1,007,550!

We will be back with another update tomorrow!

yeah sahamies will be so happy with the million earned that he will blow it only in three days instead of the regular two Pizza just wonder if he is staked/ loaned/ or plays with his own money...anyway with his overaggressive playing style you never know what to expect, he might be the next to go out, or he might end up winning the tourney

Interesting to see Ilari up there...see how that pans out.

Juanda doing nicely too.

I like how Ilari is refered to as a 'guru'...
