Mark Buckley leads after EPT Main Event Day 3

by Gutshot Editorial Posted on 31 Aug, 2018

We’re approaching the business end of the European Poker Tour (EPT) tournament series which is currently being played at the Casino Barcelona. We recently had two tournament results, with Andras Nemeth winning the 25k Single Day High Roller and Denmark’s Alexander Petersen winning the €10K PLO High Roller.

However, the main attraction of the EPT Barcelona at the moment is the €5,300 Main Event, which saw a record-breaking field of 1,931 entries registering after two days of starting flights. After Day 2 of the tournament, Ben Wilinofsky was in the chip lead and now, we’ve reached the end of Day 3 of the tournament.

The day began with 259 players still in contention and at the close of play, there were 56 players left, who bagged their chips to return a few hours later for the fourth official day of play. Leading these final 56 players into Day 4 is Ireland’s Mark Buckley, who has 2,650,000 in chips at the moment.

The top 296 players finish in the money in this tournament and the current pay-out is running at €19,760, for 59th place. During the day, some top pros busted their chip stacks, including India’s last man standing, Kunal Punjwani. He finished in 176th place to take home a career best live cash of €10,770 (~INR 8.93 lakh).

Other top pros in the hunt are Kalidou Sow (1,450,000), who has won before in Barcelona, 2015 EPT Barcelona Champion John Juanda (1,210,000), Benjamin Pollack (795,000), Andres Korn (1,445,000) and Upeshka De Silva (615,000). These players will hit the felts a few hours from now.

Top 10 current chip counts:

  1. Mark Buckley – 2,650,000
  2. Fabiano Kovalski – 2,530,000
  3. Matthias Tikerpe – 2,350,000
  4. Rodrigo Marques Carmo – 2,175,000
  5. Enrico De Rosa – 1,925,000
  6. Haoxiang Wang – 1,850,000
  7. Jamie O’Connor – 1,840,000
  8. Ognyan Dimov – 1,720,000
  9. Renato Kaneoya – 1,710,000
  10. Tom Alner – 1,530,000
