Last €25,000 Single-Day High Roller of EPT Barcelona Kicks Off at 12:30 PM

At 12:30 p.m. local time, the last €25,000 Single-Day High Roller will kick off at the 2019 PokerStars European Poker Tour Barcelona. With the Main Event still going on and many more side events to come, it is expected that this high roller will attract the world's best poker players again. The first two single-day high rollers were both won by Juan Pardo for €1,505,460 in total and as he’s not participating in the Main Event any more, he might show up to make it a hat-trick.

In the first high roller, Pardo defeated Barcelona footballer Gerard Piqué heads-up while Piqué’s teammate Arturo Vidal finished in fifth place. As the FC Barcelona team doesn’t have another match until Saturday, who knows, they might show up again to try and better that result. Also featured on that final table were Michael Addamo, Hirokazu Kobayashi, Kazuhiko Yotsushika, Ramin Hajiyev, Joao Vieira, and Mike Watson.

In the second high roller which had a buy-in of €50,000, Pardo finished ahead of Seth Davies. even with the higher buy-in, it still attracted 76 entries with a whole different set of players making the money. Chin Wei Lim, Luc Greenwood, Ali Imsirovic, Timothy Adams, Steve O’Dywer, Laurynas Levinskas, Matthew Moss, and Kahle Burns all cashed in the €50,000.

In 2018 it was Andras Nemeth who claimed the title by beating Wai Leong Chan with ace-deuce while Chan held pocket aces. The flopped wheel draw became a reality on the river for Nemeth to bring a bit of a shocking end to the tournament. Nemeth has played several of the tournaments already but Chan has not been spotted in Barcelona this year. Will Nemeth be able to do it again?

The players will receive 100,000 in chips for their buy-in with unlimited reentries possible for the first eight levels of the day. Levels last 30-minutes each and a 20-minute break is scheduled after every four levels. Players will also receive six time bank cards at the start of play and get three more when they reach the final table of nine players. A 30-second shot clock is in play from the start of the day. A 75-minute dinner break is scheduled after the twelfth level of play.

The PokerNews live reporting team will be there from the first “shuffle up and deal” until the final river has been dealt. So keep following along with the live updates.
