€5,300 Main Event

Dia 5 Iniciado

Welcome to Day 5 of the 2014 PokerStars.com EPT Barcelona

Bram Haenraets
Bram Haenraets

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.

Nielsen's Big Bluff Fails

Nível 26 : 20,000/40,000, 5,000 ante

On the river of a {9-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}, Slaven Popov, who'd check-called the whole way, checked the river across to Mikkel Nielsen. The Dane fired a bullet worth 655,000 into a pot of over a million but Popov made the call.

Nielsen showed a missed {K-Spades}{Q-Spades} and Popov picked up the huge pot with {A-Hearts}{8-Hearts}.

The turn {a-Spades} and river {2-Spades} bricked out and sent Nicolas-[Removed:372] to the rail.

ElkY, The Early Years Part 1

Nível 26 : 20,000/40,000, 5,000 ante

Team PokerStars Pro Bertrand 'ElkY' Grospellier sat down with PokerNews.com to talk about his first ever EPT experience.

Back in 2005, the man known as ElkY, was mostly famous for excelling at Starcraft in South-Korea while trying out online poker on the side. Grospellier got lucky in a satellite for video gamers and all of a sudden he found himself playing EPT Deauville.
