ESPT3 Barcelona: Butzhammer nails down huge Day 1A field

ps_news_thn.jpgThe final main event of the Estrellas Poker Tour season began yesterday in Barcelona with a huge 372 players entering Day 1A of the €1,100 event. That ending leads to a new beginning with ESPT Barcelona flowing into EPT Barcelona, the first stop of EPT Season 9. While High Rollers are now starting to touch down in Catalonia, Spanish eyes are focussed on the ESPT main event. Day 1A whittled 372 players down to 135 with Thomas Butzhammer the chip leader with 184,000 after nine levels.

Among the other players making it through to Day 2 were EPT Berlin champ Kevin MacPhee and Daniel Rauta, currently second on the Estrellas Poker Tour tournament leader board. They'll return on Day 2, joined by survivors from today's field. You can follow the ESPT main event coverage live here (in Spanish). And for a full list of the Day 1A survivors simply scroll down.
