On Thursday, a massive field of 475 players went to Casino Barcelona to participate in Day 1A of the 2014 European Poker Tour Main Event! After eight 75-minute levels of play, the tournament director called it a day and Michael "The Grinder" Mizrachi bagged up the largest stack (186,600) amongst the 279 survivors.
According to PokerStarsBlog, Mizrachi doubled up almost right away when Day 1A kicked off and he was involved in lots of pots, with success, throughout the day. The fact is that he never was out of the top three players in the poker room from start to finish. "The Grinder" will now have one day of rest before Day 2 kicks off!
Some other big names that made it through Day 1A:
Johnny Lodden - 89,500 Pierre Neuville - 82,300 Thor Hansen - 77,400 Dan Shak - 61,200 Eugene Katchalov - 22,600 David Vamplew - 19,400 Fabian Quoss - 13,900 Erik Seidel - 12,300
A much larger field is expected to show up at Casino Barcelona today for Day 1B, so expect nothing less than another thrilling, action-packed day of poker! We will be back with another update on Monday morning. Have a great weekend and don't forget to check out the live stream below!

Anyway guys have fun watching the tournament and hope you have a great time and also good luck at the tables and thanks for the link BRM! Cheers!
...demodawggy,....'Tha Dawg'.... after 4 rounds of play in the PokerStars EPTLive promotional freerolls,...is severely getting his A$$ chewed off, only raking in a paltry $0.27 after 4 days of intense play amongst all the facebook freerollin' cockroaches with multiple accounts infesting and running amock....!
Can't remember the last time i read about this player here at BRM because of playing but it's good to know he's doing well at EPT. And the luck really looks on his side, winning most of all the big pots he gets in. If one like him enters a big pot with many opponents of course he believes it's to win, but there's never total sure before seing the first table cards. Sometimes we just need to have that feeling that things will really happen. Good vibrations!
