EPT Barcelona Main Event: 989 of 1,673 (tbc) Ready For Day 2

Tags: EPT Barcelona Main Event, Smauel Bernabeu.
Posted on 26 August 2015 by "T".

Although the registation desks are open until the start of Day 2, we already know for a fact that the EPT Barcelona Main Event, with 1,673 entries, is the biggest Main Event in the history of the European Poker Tour! (The previous record was set in 2011 when 1,560 players entered the PCA Main Event).

989 survivors have made it through to Day 2 from Day 1's two starting flights. Leading the way is Day 1B's chip leader Smauel Bernabeu with 203,000 in chips. The Spaniard, who has won a Deep Stack Extravaganza in Las Vegas and made the final table of an Estrellas Poker Tour event, is the only one with more than 200k in chips. However, there are several players who aren't far behind in the chip counts, so Day 2 will definitely not be a walk in the park for Bernabeu.

As you can imagine there are lots of poker stars left in the competition. Just to mention a few: 

Jude Ainsworth, 155800
Gaelle Baumann, 107700
Ryan Riess, 103500
Jan Heitmann, 67400
ElkY, 36900
Matthias de Meulder, 28300
Nacho Barbero, 76900
Felipe Ramos, 69900
Fatima Moreira de Melo, 65400
Alex Gomes, 51400
Johnny Lodden, 48200
Dimitar Danchev, 25700
Max Lykov, 19800

Come back tomorrow for another brief update!

the fact that completely blows my mind and shows unprecedented quality of this tournament is that 989 survivors made it to the next day. this figure is so amazing, that it leaves like 7332 live poker tournaments totally in the dust when comparing the numbers of survivors who make it to the next day.

I have just checked the chipcounts at the end of today and there is now only 14 left.The leader is Denis Shafikov,I think he is from Ukraine,he has a 1.5 million chip advantage over 2nd placed Staven Warburton from the UK.
John Juanda is still alive in about 9th place.
