EPT Barcelona: Another fine bunch
We won't know the full number of runners until we're well into level two, but if it's any indication, the tournament director Thomas Kremser just made an announcement that went something like this: "Anyone on the list of alternates with a number up to 30, please come to the cash desk now. We have a seat for you."
That will likely mean more than 300 players today, bringing us close to, or indeed past, the 600 total players from days 1a and 1b. That means a lot of prize money too, the full details of which will be with us sometime today.
We've just taken a quick sweep of the tournament floor and here are some of the notables who have taken their seat today:
Team PokerStars Pros
Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier
"EPT Player of the Year" Luca Pagano
Thierry van den Berg
Jonathan Van Fleet
