The 102-entry strong field has been widdled down to 9 players in the €50,000 Super High Roller at the PokerStars.es European Poker Tour Barcelona festival.
Late last night the tournament organization decided to call it quits when the clock struck 3, with still 9 players remaining instead of the desired 8. The tournament is in the money however, with already 4 players having made their departure with cash in hand. Connor Drinan (13th) and Adrian Mateos (12th) both walked away €98,000 richer, John Juanda (11th) and Stanley Choi (10th) returned to their hotel with a cheque worth €105,300.
Timothy Adams leads the final 9, with Fedor Holz in second place. Defending champion Sylvain Loosli is still in contention, as are Julian Stuer, Alexandros Kolonias, Sam Greenwood, Daniel Dvoress and Erik Seidel. The only wild card still in is Azerbaijani businessman Ahadpur Khangah who gathered lots of chips late last night at the unofficial final table.
There's still 30 minutes left on the clock for level 20 (40,000/80,000 with a 10,000 ante). The players return at 1pm local time for the televised final table. The final table will be live streamed with hole cards on an hour delay, so check back at 2pm local time (in 2 hours) for our ongoing coverage of EPT Barcelona's biggest event.
