Taylor Paur shines on Day 1
Taylor Paur shines on Day 1

Day 1 of the 2012 PokerStars.com EPT Barcelona €10,000 High Roller has come and gone. It was a short day on the felt as play was halted early due to the Barcelona versus Real Madrid match tonight that many of the players were headed off to. After a total of 111 entries were tallied, 76 of them remained at the end of the night. Leading the way was Taylor Paur with 220,400 in chips.

Of those to play this event were Team PokerStars Pros Jonathan Duhamel, Angel Guillen, Jason Mercier, Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier, Pius Heinz and Martin Staszko. Mercier was forced to quickly use his single reload after busting on the first hand he played, but went on to finish with 48,100. Of that bunch, Duhamel bagged the most chips with 140,100 in his bag at the end of the night.

Other notables to finish with solid stack sizes were Jean Noel Thorel (193,600), JC Alvarado (181,600) and Igor Kurganov (151,000).

The top 12 spots are planned to be paid out, with €359,000 going to the winner. Play is scheduled to resume tomorrow at 1:00 PM local time. The plan will be to play down to the final table before calling it quits. PokerNews will be on hand for all of the live updates, so be sure to join us then for the coverage.

Last Six Hands

Homer • Level 5: 400-800, 100 ante

Players are now playing their final six hands of the day.

Two Dans Down

Homer
Dan Smith
Dan Smith

Dan Smith won't be adding to his €50k crown here, he opened for 2,000 before Chris Brammer made it 5,025, Smith responded with a four-bet to 9,300 with around 25,000 behind.

Brammer tanked for a couple of minutes before setting the American all in, getting snap-called for his trouble.

Brammer: {9-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}
Smith: {A-Diamonds}{K-Diamonds}

The board ran out a Brit-friendly {5-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{4-Hearts} to knock Smith out.

At the same time, Rui Cao had opened in the small blind to 2,200 and decided to make the call when Dani Stern pushed all in for around 22,000.

Cao: {K-Spades}{Q-Hearts}
Stern: {A-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}

The board came {2-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{A-Spades} and it looked all good for Stern but the river was the {10-Clubs} to make Cao's straight and a wordless "Ansky" left quickly.

Andrulis Doubles Up Again

Homer

Kristijonas Andrulis has already survived one all in showdown today and now he can make that two. He check-raised all for 15,050 in on a {10-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} board against an opponent who had bet 6,500 and made the call with {A-Clubs}{J-Diamonds}.

Andrulis flipped {10-Hearts}{10-Clubs} and survived after a scary {4-Spades} turn and the rather more mundane {Q-Hearts} river.

Jed-licked

Homer

Jani Sointula fired out 8,500 on the turn of a {4-Hearts}{2-Spades}{9-Hearts}{J-Diamonds} board with Nicklaus Jedlicka check-calling this bet.

On the {6-Hearts} river, the Austrian checked again and Sointula moved all in. Jedlicka, known by his online nickname "Kaibuxxe" made the call.

Sointula showed {2-Hearts}{2-Clubs} for a flopped set and Jedlicka mucked pushing 27,000 forward.

"Wait," he said, "Those aren't 1k chips?" He'd thought the bet was only 27,000 which would've left him a few chips left. He didn't make a deal of it though, simply shrugged and left the table.
