Day 1a in the Bag; Huge Day 1b Likely in Store For Tomorrow

[user66118] • Ниво 9: 400-800, 100 ante
Akkari over 100,000 chips after Day 1a
Akkari over 100,000 chips after Day 1a

Day 1a of the PokerStars.com EPT Barcelona is nine levels old, and we've already seen a pretty fine turnout for the opening day. A total of 346 players showed up to the Casino de Barcelona to play Day 1a, and several hundred more are expected tomorrow. Betting the over on last year's record of 758 seems like the correct side of the action right now, but Day 1b will tell us for certain.

Among the Day 1a crowd were a solid cross-section of the Team PokerStars family. The host country, Spain sent Juan Maceiras and newly-minted Team Pro Ana Marquez to the felt, and they were joined by an international crowd that included Andre Akkari, Vanessa Selbst, Theo Jorgensen, Alex Kravchenko, Lex Veldhuis, and Sebastian Ruthenberg, among others.

The early stages of the day -- as is often the case -- belonged to Vanessa Selbst alone. Right out of the starting gate, Selbst began taking her table to task, and she was up over 170,000 -- nearly six times the starting stack -- before the dinner break! She cooled off a bit through the middle stages, then rebounded, then dropped again to finish with 81,500 chips into the bag here at night's end. The Team Pros who are still flush with chips include Sebastian Ruthenberg, Andre Akkari, and Ville Wahlbeck.

While some have gone out to the bar to celebrate a successful day, others were already gathered there much earlier as they drowned away the sorrows of Day 1a. Pierre Neuville (who brought along some amazing Belgian chocolates for the media today) had a particularly bad go of it. Very early on, all the money went in on the river, and Neuville's full house had been one-outed by quad fives to rob him of most of his chips. The rest of his stack went soon thereafter, and Neuville was joined on the rail by the likes of Johnny Lodden, Veldhuis, Martin Hruby, and Sandra Naujoks. Both halves of the Spanish contingent -- Marquez and Maceiras -- were also eliminated during the last third of the day. Apart from the PokerStars family, we also lost a big group of notable players like Joe Ebanks, Davidi Kitai, former EPT Grand Final champion Nicolas Chouity, Jake Cody, and last year's EPT Player of the Year, Fernando Brito.

At the end of today's nine levels, everyone's chasing Martin Schleich, though. The PokerStars player appears to be holding the top spot with his count of 182,100, and we'll peg him as our tentative overnight chip leader. The board shows about 179 players left. The survivors will have the day off tomorrow, but they'll be back here at noon on Monday for the combined Day 2.

First, though, we've got a Day 1b to get through, and that will kick of at high noon tomorrow with a big, fresh new set of faces.

Until tomorrow, all that's left is goodnight!

The last Six Hands of the Day

• Ниво 9: 400-800, 100 ante

Tournament Director Toby Stone stopped the clock with 12 minutes remaining of level nine and ordered each table to play six more hands before bagging up for the night.

More Names Bust

• Ниво 9: 400-800, 100 ante

Mathew Frankland and Ben Wilinofsky are two more players that made it to, but not beyond the final level of the day.

We not sure how Frankland busted but we know Wilinofsky was unlucky. He got it all in with preflop {10-Hearts}{10-Clubs} versus Kewin Charles Lambert with {a-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}. The board ran {5-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{6-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds} to make the American a set on the river but he was already drawing dead on the the turn to the Swiss' straight.

Busquet Busto

[user66118] • Ниво 9: 400-800, 100 ante

We just counted Olivier Busquet a moment ago, and he was enjoying a little up-trend to about 22,000. Just a moment later, though, we saw his seat card come across our desk, and that can only mean one thing. A quick check on his chair confirms the worst: Busquet is busto in Barcelona.

Ruthenberg Still Chipping Up

• Ниво 9: 400-800, 100 ante

Team PokerStars Pro Sebastian Ruthenberg has added more to his chip stack after he eliminated Kent Ove Rod.

The Norwegian was short stacked and pushed with {a-Clubs}{6-Clubs} after the German opened with a raise. Ruthenberg called with {j-Hearts}{j-Diamonds} and safely navigated the {k-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{2-Spades}{4-Spades} board. He's at 140,000 now.

Moorman Lets One Go

• Ниво 8: 300-600, 75 ante

Chris Moorman just had to let a hand go on the flop but he's still going along nicely with 92,000.

Sharkota Siarhei limped from UTG and called along with Ignat Liviu (BB) when Moorman raised to 2,100 from late position. The flop fell {5-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds} and Moorman's 4,200 c-bet was check-raised to 10,250 by Siarhei. Liviu folded in the middle of the action and Moorman's cards didn't take too long in hitting the muck as well.
