What They Are Playing For
EPT Barcelona High Roller Day 2 – Barer Leads
The hugely successful and record breaking High Roller at the European Poker Tour Barcelona saw the field on Day 2 reduced from 193 to just 21 with Ami Barer finishing as the days chip leader on 1,953,000 in chips.
He is the man that at this moment in time is on course to take down the €747,200 on offer for the winner. It is far from set in stone however as he still has the likes of Stephen Chidwick, Benjamin Pollak, Juha Helppi and PokerStars Team Pro Jason Mercier looking dangerous in the event.
