61 left at EPT Barcelona - Duda leads

Thursday, 23 August 2012

Just 61 players are left at PokerStars EPT Barcelona with qualifier Antonin Duda leading the charge for the €1m+ first prize. The Czech student closed the day with a stack of 1,470,000, just ahead of Samuel Rodriguez who will return with 1,416,000.

The only other player to accumulate a seven figure stack was Ilari Sahamies (1,269,000) who leads a host of big name players in the chasing pack. Among that number are five-time WSOP bracelet winner John Juanda (968,000), Team PokerStars pro Fatima Moreira de Melo (955,000) and Briton's EPT Loutraki champion Zimnan Ziyard (940,000).

The UK challenge remains strong with Roberto Romanello (671,000), Daniel Rudd (635,000) and Bluff Europe columnist Ben Jackson (363,000) all very much in contention.

Today's starters are all guaranteed a pay day of at least €14,150 but will have eyes on a much more. The eight that reach the final table will pocket a minimum of €76,100 with the winner taking home €1,007,550.
The action resumes at 11am UK time.
