After an extended day of eleven 60-minute levels, there will be 36 players heading to Day 3 with their eyes fixed on taking down the EPT 13 Barcelona €10,300 High Roller. There were 263 players who made it through Day 1, and with the addition of Piotr Franczak, Wei Zhao, Gleb Tremzin, Markus Durnegger and Diego Zeiter entering at the start of Day 2, the overall field size reached a record 591 which comprised of 472 players and 119 re-entries.

The early stages started out with a flurry of bustouts, whittling the field size down slowly but surely. Team PokerStars Pros Leo Fernandez and Jason Mercier were eliminated at the hands of Pratyush Buddiga and Vlado Banicevic respectively before the likes of Fedor Holz, Faraz Jaka, Ludovic Geilich, Luca Pagano, Philipp Gruissem, Daniel Negreanu and Chris Moorman joined them on the rail.

The money was reached today, with tournament staff announcing that 119 players would be paid, with a min-cash worth €11,695. The unfortunate bubble boy was Shyam Srinivasan. He moved all in with top pair on a jack-high board, only to run into the bottom set of Ilkin Amirov.

A flurry of bustouts followed, with the likes of Max Silver, Koray Aldemir, Anton Wigg, Eugene Katchalov, Andrey Shatilov, David Benefield and Pratyush Buddiga all in this first band of payouts. Other big names to bust later in the money include Paul Newey and Martin Finger (€18,110), Dominik Nitsche, Adrian Mateos and Sergey Lebedev (€19,200), as well as Igor Yaroshevskyy, Rainer Kempe, Senh Ung and PokerStars Team Pro Felipe Ramos (€20,920).

Leading the way into Day 3 is Julian Stuer with 1,900,000 in chips. Behind Amirov is Ari Engel (1,645,000), Ilikin Amirov (1,700,000), Connor Drinan (1,463,000), Joseph Cheong (1,412,000) and Christopher Frank (1,355,000).

They are joined by Natasha Barbour (910,000), Patrick Leonard (756,000) and Ivan Luca (656,000), with a full list of chip counts below.

This time last year there were 30 players remaining, which forced tournament officials to reduce the levels to 50 minutes in length. It remains to be seen whether or not the same will be done tomorrow, but stay tuned to PokerNews for all the information.

Huang Folds Twice

zedmaster84 • Level 21: 10,000-20,000, 3,000 ante

Samuel Vousden raised to 45,000 and Shan Huang called on the button. The flop came {K-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{6-Hearts} and both players checked. "How much do you have behind?" Vousden asked and Huang replied "around 330,000, something like that." The {7-Diamonds} came on the turn and Vousden bet to force a fold from Huang.

Soon after, Huang raised to 47,000 from the cutoff and Robin Ylitalo called in the big blind. The {9-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{3-Clubs} flop went check, check. Ylitalo then bet the {7-Diamonds} turn for 55,000 and Huang folded.

Connor Drinan: {10-Clubs}{3-Clubs}

Drinan made a flush on {J-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{3-Spades}{K-Clubs}{9-Hearts} and eliminated Carrel in 39th place.
