EPT Barcelona Main Event: 25 Remain, Dominik Panka Could Win His Second EPT

Posted at 18:00 2014-08-26 by PokerNetwork Staff

There were 102 players returning for Day 4 of the record-breaking PokerStars European Poker Tour event here in Barcelona, but after six levels and 12 long hours, just 25 remain going into the penultimate day of the first EPT of Season 11.

The chip leader to close the day was Bram Haenraets of the Netherlands, and he is remarkably playing his first-ever live tournament, but hasn't been afraid to show a lot of aggression.

Team PokerStars Pro's hopes rested squarely on the shoulders of Jan Heitmann. The German came in with one of the larger stacks, but he ended up suffering two horrible beats.

Heitmann wasn't the only big name to fall, either, as five of the six remaining former EPT winners were all eliminated.

The only former winner left now is PokerStars sponsored player Dominik Panka, winner of the 2013 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure. The Polish youngster finished the day with 1,705,000, which was enough to put him squarely in the middle of the pack.

Others to make it through included Maximilian Senft (1,795,000), Kiryl Radzivonau (1,860,000), and Andrea Dato (2,290,000), and they did considerably better than Josh Prager, Ryan Fee, Emil Patel, Kimmo Kurko, and Vojtech Ruzicka, all of whom were casualties at some point.
