Earlier today we bigged-up the prospects of George Danzer, only to discover that he was already out when we published the story.

However, there is more to The Team PokerStars Pro than an EPT Main Event. While he'll be getting stuck into side events this week he'll also have an eye on the coming months, during which he'll try to top the WCOOP leader board but also that of the WSOP, which will be decided one way or another in Asia.

Here Sarah Grant talks to Danzer about that, how it effects planning for a series and how important it is to the German who just can't help himself from aiming high.

Follow all the action from the tournament floor on the main EPT Barcelona page. There's hand-by-hand coverage in the panel at the top, including chip counts, and feature pieces below. There's also EPTLive, which is streaming action from Day 2 of the Main Event.
