Many records have been set during this year's poker festival in Barcelona, Spain. First, Martio Lopez won the largest ever Estrellas Main Event, then Sylvain Loosli won the record-breaking €50,000 Super High Roller, and another two record events ended yesterday: the EPT Main Event and the EPT High Roller. The latter attracted a field of 506 players despite the expensive buy-in of €10,300!
One day of play wasn't enough to decide a winner of the single-day €25,000 High Roller event. That's right, three players of 152 entrants still remained after nearly 17 hours of play (around 5 in the morning) when tournament staff were forced to close the exhibition centre (which hosts the EPT) due to casino rules.
A total of 295 players (+98 re-entries) entered the High Roller to make it the by far richest HR-event in European Poker Tour history! There are 21 survivors after two days of play and Amir Barer, winner of the 2014 Aussie Millions Main Event, will lead the way into Day 3 with 1.953 million in chips.
