The EPT Barcelona main event has now been narrowed down to a final table with 8 players. Tomeu Gomila, from Spain, is still in the chip leader, however, his lead is even greater now than when Day 4 started. In total, he will 6,985,000 chips to the final table today - the 2 closest competitors have about 4.5 million each. So, Gomila is definitely the big favorite to take home the €850,000 first prize and the biggest poker tournament ever held in Spain.
The only big name who made it to the final table is the Team PokerStars Pro Eugene Katchalov. But things are not looking very good for him at the moment since he only has 690k left and the blinds will be 25,000 - 50,000 with a 5k ante. Well, anything is possible in the game of poker so we will just have to wait and see what happens.
