Besides the €888 Main Event, the second highlight of the poker festival in the Casino Gran Via Madrid is the €2,200 High Roller. Day 1 has already attracted a big field of 76 entries of which 41 players bagged up chips after 11 levels of 45 minutes each.

Two familiar faces are on top of the leaderboard as Sonny Franco (417,900) and Ignacio Molina (406,300) bagged up the most chips in the early morning hours. Right behind them is 2019 WSOP bracelet winner Carl Shaw (370,500) and two 888poker ambassadors claimed top 10 stacks to their name in Martin Jacobson (344,200) and Sofia Lovgren (310,000).

Fellow 888poker ambassadors Chris Moorman (192,900), Vivian Saliba (68,000), and Dominik Nitsche (59,100) also made the cut. All those that wish to join the action can do so for the first two levels of Day 2, which has just kicked off at 5 p.m. local time.

The blinds are currently 1,200/2,400 with a big blind ante of 2,400, and the starting stack is 100,000. Among those that entered and re-entered before the cards went in the air were 888poker LIVE Barcelona champion Luigi Shehadeh, Jon Gurrutxaga, and 888poker ambassador Daria Feshchenko.

The tournament is scheduled to play down to a champion tonight and the full results will be published on PokerNews the following day.
