Gerard Piqué, a Spanish footballer who plays as central defender for FC Barcelona, is doing very well in the €10,000 High Roller! In fact, he built a sweet 308,500 stack during Day 1 and is currently ranked 5th of the remaining 98 players (168 entries in total). Leading the way into Day 2 is Ole Schemion who bagged up 393,600 thanks to some big pots during the last stages of the day.

Besides Schemion and Piqué, big names such as Eugene Katchalov, David Benefield, Chino Rheem and Ludovic Lacay will all bring healthy stacks to Day 2, which begins on Friday at 12 p.m. with registration open until 11:45 a.m. Friday morning. In other words, we might see some late entrants and some players using their second bullet.
