EPT Barcelona: Three tables

Apologies for the lack of colour -- and for the "u" in that word, American blog readers -- but we're reaching the business end here in Barcelona and I expect more people are interested in cold, hard chip counts rather than life histories. (And on the "u" point, I'm English.)

So, here's the skinny: Twenty-two players remain, playing blinds of 3,000-6,000 with a 500 ante. They's spread across three tables and they're sitting with, approximately:

Table A

Greg Dyer -- 205,000
Mohamad Kowssarie -- 475,000
Mika Paasonen -- 480,000
Voitto Rintala -- 185,000
Adam Junglen -- 370,000
Other -- 190,000

Table B

Aditya Agarwal -- 320,000
Peter Giordino -- 135,000
Patrick Bruel -- 250,000
Borge Dypuik -- 70,000
Christophe Ulsrud -- 260,000
Sander Lylloff -- 260,000
Tronde Eidsvig -- 440,000

Table C (TV table)

Sylvester Geoghegan -- 160,000
Alessio Isaia -- 170,000
Mark Teltscher -- 240,000
Davidi Kitai -- 131,000
Philip Yeh -- 108,000
Niklaus Jedlicka -- 297,000
Javed Abrahams -- 120,000

Those recent eliminations:

25 - Daan Ruiter (Holland) €16,700
26 - Henrik Jensen (Denmark) €16,700
27 - Ole Holgersen (Norway) €16,700
28 - Michael Greco (UK) €16,700
29 - Michael Wong (USA) €16,700 (PokerStars qualifier)
30 - Ian Woodley (UK) €16,700
31 - Martin Wendt (Denmark) €16,700
32 - Thomas Fjelleheim (Norway) €16,700
33 - Ryan Jones (USA) €14,650
34 - Eric Hardt (USA) €14,650 (PokerStars qualifier)
35 - Bjorn Erik Glenne (Norway) €14,650
36 - Giovanni Spadavecchia (Italy) €14,650
37 - Henrik Sorensen (Denmark) €14,650
38 - Nikolas Panopoulos (Greece) €14,650
39 - Fabrice Soulier (France) €14,650

Update: We've also just lost Sylvester Geoghegan (the mysterious "Vesty" from the overnight list) who got it all in pre-flop with A-Q but ran into Nicholas Jedlicka's A-K. Dag Mikkelsen also perished. He lost a chunk with K-Q against A-K and shoved the rest in with something very meagre and was busted.
