The fourth and final flight of the PokerStars European Poker Tour Barcelona €1,100 EPT National attracted another 844 players to put the total number of entries of all starting days above 4,300. Near 4 a.m., 125 out of 844 made their way to Day 2. The exact number and payouts will be announced at the start of Day 2.

While scheduled for 7 p.m., the players had to wait for over an hour to finally be able to start playing in the last turbo flight of the night. All tables in Casino Barcelona were occupied and Day 1c's schedule got adjusted to create enough free space to kick off Day 1d. The field size grew to 844 over the course of the night, largely due to nearly 700 (!) alternates jumping in to take a crack at the €4M+ prize pool.

Farukh Tach from The Netherlands was the one to lead the 125 survivors with 808,000 in chips, followed by countryman Jan Teunis with 730,000. France's Sonny Franco claimed third place with 627,000 in chips, while Gerald Ringe (411,000), Jakub Michalak (355,000), Lijo Lander (336,000), Rens Feenstra (219,000), and Jason Wheeler (150,000) were also among those that found a bag.

With the day ending shortly before 4 a.m., there will be little rest for the 127 survivors as Day 2 will kick off at 12 p.m. already. There will be exciting action right out of the gates, as PokerStars will hand out one of the $30,000 Platinum Passes shortly before cards go in the air. A Crazy Pineapple Flip Out Hand on each table will eventually decide who will receive a chance in the $25K PokerStars Players NL Hold'em Championship, held on the Bahama's in January 2019. A total of 650 players will all have an equal shot at the coveted prize up for grabs.

PokerNews will be back at noon to continue coverage of the massive EPT National at the European Poker Tour in Barcelona!
