Day 4 of the EPT Barcelona main event just came to an end with 24 survivors. Samuel Rodiguez, who started the day with the 2nd largest stack, is now in a big lead with 5,330,000. Antonin Duda, who lead the way into Day 4 with 1.47 million chips, is also alive, but he has dropped to 4th possition with 2,054,000 chips.

Notables such as John Juanda, Ilari Sahamies and PokerStars Team SportStar Fatima Moreira de Melo will also return to play today with hopes of making it to the final table, where some serious cash is up for grabs. The next 8 players to hit the rail will receive €29,400 each, which is nothing compared to the money that is up for grabs on the final table. For example: the winner of the tournament will get €1,007,550, the runner-up gets €629,700 and a 3rd place finish pays €404,050.

you can go there, buy the ticket and of to barcelona, even if you would enter the tourney stop dreaming of big payouts, what about the scenario where you pay $10 K to enter the tourney and walk away with nothing, like you get aa and someone goes all in with 26o just for fun- you call ang get sucked out by river str8 Big Smile kinda expensive trip it would be

I like the payout structure.

Interesting to see Ilari still there. Never knew of him as much of a tourney player. I reckon his aggression could be nasty to deal with when your tourney life is in the balance.

Still, sucks to get to the FT and 'only' get 50000euros when the winner gets 20x that amount.

That's a really nice pay-out structure they have there. Interesting to see Ilari is still hanging in there. It'll be interesting to see where he's going to finish. I'd hope to see him at the final table. That would probably make it an interesting table to watch with a lot of game-turning pots.

Compared to other high rolle events i think they changed a bit the structure of prizes if you ask me...
Also it's interesting to see so many important poker names at the tables but again Spain is beautiful this part of the year Big Smile
