Whilst the final few players were making their way ever closer to EPT Barcelona's Main Event title, a healthy cohort of players joined the festival's €10,000 High Roller.
Allowing a single re-entry the tournament peaked at 168 entries, which means the surviving players will be looking to claim a share of a prizepool worth around €1,680,000 (the registration desk is still open so this number could increase). Running hot throughout the session was German wonder kid Ole Schemion. Having already picked up €159,200 for finishing sixth in the €50,000 Super High Roller, Schemion raked in a 393,600 chip haul by during the day to finish top of the chip counts. Looking every bit like a challenger for the title, Schemion will begin today's session ahead of a strong chasing pack that contains the likes of Igor Kurganov, Martin Jacobson and Peter Jetten. Also making it through the day in fine form was Barcelona defender Gerard Piqué. Indeed, by the time the final whistle had blown he was able to bag up 308,500 chips in preparation for today's second session. While bagging chips was enough to garner the attention of the watching media for most of the day, it was the antics of Daniel Negreanu that kept them talking. Having eagerly anted-up €10,000 at the start of the day he soon found himself embroiled in a technical dispute with the tournament directors. After not being in his chair for the start of a hand his cards were instantly mucked, causing Daniel to call the floor for a ruling. After explaining the situation the hand was killed. An irate Negreanu then went all in blind on the very next hand and was eliminated by Timothy Adams who was holding pocket 77s. Daniel was keen to explain his decision to his fans via Twitter, but after some contemplation he decided to return to the action and buy-in again just before the close of Day 1.
