€50,000 Single-Day High Roller

Dia 1 Começado

It's Time for the €50,000 Single-Day High Roller

Casino Barcelona
Casino Barcelona

Just one day after the largest buy-in tournament wrapped up in the €100,000 Super High Roller, it is now time for the €50,000 Single-Day High Roller to take place. The next largest buy-in will be a turbo structure with plenty of action leading up to a winner by the day's end.

There have been a couple of smaller single-day high rollers taking place over the past week and many of the big names in the poker world have taken part. As well, even some celebrities have made their way to Casino Barcelona for the 2019 PokerStars EPT Barcelona including Gerard Pique and Arturo Vidal who are both stars on FC Barcelona.

In last year's edition, there were a total of 54 entries that took to the felt with 15 of them being re-entries. Benjamin Pollak came out on top after topping his countryman Jean-Noel Thorel for a first-place prize of €979,000. There will be an unlimited number of re-entries to the players today and that could spur even more action and create an even larger prizepool.

The cards will go in the air at approximately 12:30 pm local time with each player receiving a starting stack of 100,000 chips. The blinds will begin at 500/1,000 with a big blind ante of 1,000 and the levels will be 30 minutes in length. There will be a 20-minute break after every four levels and a 75-minute dinner break after level 12. Late registration will remain open until the start of level 9. As with all high-rollers, a 30-second shot clock will be in play from the start with each player receiving six 30-second time banks.

The PokerNews live reporting team will be on the tournament floor to bring you all of the up-to-date action from the start until a winner is crowned.

Loeliger Large Turn Bet Gets Through

Nível 1 : 500/1,000, 1,000 ante

Isaac Haxton opened to 2,500 in the hijack and Linus Loeliger three-bet to 8,000 in the cutoff. The action folded back to Haxton who called to go heads-up to a flop of {k-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{5-Hearts}.

Haxton checked to Loeliger who continued for 4,500 and Haxton used his allotted 30 seconds before making the call. The turn was the {9-Diamonds} and Haxton checked again. Loeliger put together a bet of 27,500 and Haxton quickly folded.

Haxton Busted in First Level

Nível 1 : 500/1,000, 1,000 ante
Isaac Haxton

A completed board of {j-Spades}{10-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{8-Spades}{k-Hearts} was spread across the felt and a massive pot ensued between Michael Addamo and Isaac Haxton. All of the chips were already in the pot and it was Haxton who was at risk for around 95,000.

Addamo's cards were face up in front of him with {q-Hearts}{9-Hearts} for a straight and Haxton's cards were already sent to the muck. Addamo barely had Haxton covered and instantly became the early chip leader.

Heath Doubles Through Gieles

Nível 2 : 500/1,000, 1,000 ante

Ben Heath opened to 2,500 in the hijack and was called by Luuk Gieles on the button and Ahadpur Khangah in the small blind. The flop fell {7-Spades}{6-Hearts}{5-Hearts} and the action checked to Gieles who bet 5,000. Khangah called and Heath shoved all in for 34,500. Gieles called and Khangah stepped aside.

Ben Heath: {k-Spades}{k-Clubs}
Luuk Gieles: {9-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}

Heath was ahead with his pair of kings but Gieles has some outs. The {5-Diamonds} paired the board on the turn and the {4-Clubs} hit the river as Heath secured himself a double up.
