€5,300 Main Event

Welcome to Day 5 of 2016 PokerStars.es EPT Barcelona Main Event

Sebastian Malec

We are back in the Casino Barcelona and ready for what be a dramatic day at the felt in the EPT Main Event. We'll bring you all the action as 24 players become eight, with Sebastian Malec currently a big chip leader with 5,640,000 chips, a considerable amount clear of second-placed Uri Reichenstein with 3,870,000. The two will share a table from the start of Day 5, along with Michael Addamo (3,245,000), who is fourth in chips.

Elsewhere in the field, we have November Niner Vojtech Ruzicka with 2,135,000 chips. He told us yesterday that reaching the final table would be "the best preparation" for his WSOP final table in November. If Ruzicka can make it, he'll have battled through an opening table featuring Morten Mortensen (2,075,000) and Andrea Cortellazzi (2,925,000) among others.

We'll play 90-minute levels until we reach those final eight players who will return tomorrow to fight for the EPT Barcelona Main Event title and €1,122,800 top prize! The PokerNews team continue to bring you all the drama, tension, and excitement until a winner lifts the trophy on Sunday evening.
