It's the penultimate day of the Main Event here in Barcelona. There are 25 players remaining in the event led by Bram Haenraets (4,395,000), who is, incredibly, playing his first ever live tournament. A lot of poker is still to be played though and we're expecting that it will take six or seven levels for the final table to be reached today, meaning a very late finish.
Sadly there are no Team PokerStars Pros left after Jan Heitmann was eliminated late last night after losing aces to Mark Wagstaff's queens. There is one remaining former EPT Champion in Dominik Panka, the PokerStars sponsored player begins the day with 1,705,000 - which is around average. Everyone is guaranteed a minimum €33,300 but it'll be the first place prize of €1,261,000 that will be on most minds.
Play begins at midday.
