The EPT Barcelona Main Event is now, after a very long day (Day 3) that finished about 2 hours ago, down to only 24 players. In the lead is Giuseppe Pantaleo, the German, from Bieledfield, who won the Sunday Warm-up during EPT Tallinn earlier this year. Pantaleo started Day 3 with a 622,500 stack and played fantastic poker from start to finish. Today, he will return with a 2.3 million stack, and if he plays as good as yesterday there is no doubt that he could win the tournament and lay hands on the first place prize of €825,000.
All the remaining players are guaranteed at least €20,000 each. The 9 players who make it to the final table are guaranteed to bring back home with them at least €50,000 each.
