A ceiling, yesterday. The prize pool has gone through it

When there are lot of beans, there's a lot of bean-counting to do, and players at EPT Barcelona this week have known for a long time that they are playing for an absolute mountain.

Owing to some unfortunate behind-the-scenes issues, it has taken a while to get this information published. But the figures have finally been tabulated and calculated and we know precisely what we're playing for.

The headline amounts are as follows:

There were 1,694 entries to EPT Barcelona Main Event.
There's €8,215,900 in the prize-pool.
The winner will receive €1,420,500.
The top 247 players will be paid.

The full schedule is below, but it means that with 343 players remaining at the start of play today, the bubble will drift close in the coming couple of levels this afternoon.
