Out of a a massive field of 2,294 players, only 64 players will return at noon today to continue to battle it out in the €5,300 2022 PokerStars and Barcelona©Casino European Poker Tour Main Event.
Foremost among them in terms of chip count is Brazilian Peterson Machado, who has an impressive stack of 4,470,000. He will be joined near the top of the counts by Jordan Saccucci (3,250,000), Kayhan Mokri (3,000,000), Emmanuel Lopez (3,000,000) and Gaelle Baumann (2,265,000),
While those players are in the best position to advance to Day 5, accomplished players like Michael Wang (1,095,000) as well as defending champion Simon Brandstrom (710,000) and Maria Lampropulos (700,000) are also still in the hunt so it's sure to be a contentious day here on Day 4.
The remaining players are all guaranteed €23,580, but all eyes will be on the six-figure top prize of €1,714,000, and the title.
The day will begin at Level 23, with blinds of 10,000/25,000 and with a 25,000 ante. Play will consist of six 90-minute levels, with a 20-minute break after each level and a dinner break at the discretion of the tournament directors. A 30-second timer will be in use, with players getting replenished stashes of five time bank cards.
