Yesterday, the first starting day of the WPT Barcelona Spanish Championship kicked off at the Gran Casino in Barcelona. Everyone expected a quite big field of players to show, but unfortunately it didn't end up that way. Only 94 players came to play the first starting day of WPT Barclona, and at the end of the day 54 of them still had chips left.
In the lead is Artur Koren (picture) with 122,800 chips, and in second place is Justin Tazelaar with 112,500 chips. Unfortunately there weren't many big names to be found in the field that survived Day 1a. Let's hope that Day 2 will attract a much greater player field, and that we also get to see some bigger names who survive the day with healthy stacks.
