Chris Dowling leads final 17 in EPT Barcelona PLO

by Gutshot Editorial Posted on 30 Aug, 2018

The festivities at Casino Barcelona are on in full swing at the month, with the European Poker Tour (EPT) Barcelona series currently taking place. The highlight at the moment is the EPT Main Event, where Ben Wilinofsky is leading the final 259 survivors, while other tournaments are also taking place simultaneously.

One of these side events is the €10,300 Pot Limit Omaha High Roller, which saw a field of 80 entries (62 players + 18 re-entries) registering to the event. At the end of Day 1, the registration period came to an end and a prize pool of €776,000 was created, with the top 11 players to be paid out a minimum cash of €19,400.

17 survivors bagged their chips to return on Day 2 of the tournament and fight it out for the top prize of €213,400, with Ireland’s Chris Dowling in the chip lead at the moment. Dowling has career live cashes of around $700k and a top cash of $126,355, which he scored in 2009. He will be looking to keep the lead and register his first major live tournament victory.

Another big name in the mix is Dan Shak, who has 387,000 in chips, while many popular names like Sam Greenwood, Ryan Riess, Cary Katz and others hit the rail during the day. These 17 will return to the Casino Barcelona to play Day 2 of the PLO event later today, with no Indians in the tournament, mostly due to a considerably high buy-in.

Top 10 current chip counts:

  1. Chris Dowling – 509,000
  2. Alexander Petersen – 417,000
  3. Laszlo Bujtas – 393,000
  4. Dan Shak – 387,000
  5. Anson Tsang – 349,000
  6. Seamus Cahill – 329,000
  7. Yevgeniy Timoshenko – 190,000
  8. Niko Soininen – 175,000
  9. Martin Kozlov – 173,000
  10. Felix Stephensen – 172,000
