The final day of the €1,100 EPT National of the 2019 PokerStars European Poker Tour Barcelona is about to get started at noon local time.
Out of a massive field of 4,682 entries, only six players will return to the felt to continue to battle it out. They have all secured a cash of €129,100 but all eyes will be on the first-place prize of €585,500, on the title, and on the trophy.
Leading the way is Markku Koplimaa with 39,025,000 in chips. He is followed closely by [Removed:328] with 38,475,000, the only two stacks above the 30-million mark.
Adam Hendrix will start the day in third with 29,650,000. Rounding out the pack are Barry McGovern (15,475,000), Matias Arosuo (9,150,000) and Jose Quintas (8,650,000).
When play resumes, the blinds will continue at Level 36 which features a small blind of 250,000, big blind of 500,000, and a 500,000 big blind ante for another 26:44 minutes, and will then be increasing every hour. There will be a 20-minute break after every two levels and the action will conclude once a winner is crowned.
The PokerNews Live reporting team will be roaming the floors to bring you all the live updates until a winner has been found so make sure to stay tuned to follow along.
