Four days of play and multiple eliminations have left this year’s WPT Barcelona main event poised just a hair’s breadth from the final.
On a day of action that saw numerous players hit the rail including reigning champion Lukas Berglund, the tournament clock was finally paused with just 13 players at the felt.When the chips had settled long enough to be counted it emerged that local grinder Sergio Fernandez was the player on top.Having led the field after Day 1B, the satellite qualifier had a disastrous day and almost hit the rail before a rallying effort yesterday.Picking up premium hands at the right time, Fernandez managed to end the day with 1,268,000, which was a healthy margin ahead of second place Chanracy Khun on 838,000.Today’s session will force seven players to vacate the tournament area before a final table is eventually set.While the remaining field might not be awash with upper echelon players, there’s certainly a healthy mix of amateurs and pros including Benjamin Pollak on 752,000, Paul Testud with 520,000 and Erich Kollmann holding 151,000.Keep up to date with all the news from the poker world by following us on Twitter and Facebook.
