The 2022 PokerStars and Barcelona©Casino European Poker Tour continued today, and the first of two starting flights for the €2,200 Estrellas Poker Tour High Roller saw 1,500 entrants flock to the felt.

Emil Bise bagged the chip lead of Day 1a with a solid stack of 823,000 chips. Bise is coming off a deep run in the €1,100 Estrellas Poker Tour Main Event where he finished in 18th place in a field of 6,313, and he will be looking to best that result soon.

PokerStars Ambassadors Sam Grafton (101,000) and Andre Akkari (218,000) will be bringing a stack into Day 2, and so will a few well-known French players who made it through the day, albeit with shorter stacks, including Antoine Labat (95,000), Julien Martini (61,000), and Gaelle Baumann (31,000).

Other players to bag for the night include Johnny Lodden (477,00), Sirzat Hissou (430,000), Andras Nemeth (378,000), Tsugunari Toma (341,000), Darren Rabinowitz (246,000), Martin Jacobson (189,000), Joey Weissman (181,000), Daniel Rezaei (139,000), Nacho Barbero (131,000), Norbert Szecsi (103,000), and Padraig O'Neill (36,000).
