Welcome back to our coverage of the European Poker Tour Season 10 High Roller event! Yesterday the final numbers were tallied to find that event saw 180 total entries. There were 138 unique players and 42 re-entries. At the end of play, it was Joni Jouhkimainen who led the unofficial final table of nine.
While Jouhkimainen is the largest stack at the table, the man directly behind him is none other than PokerStars Team Pro Daniel Negreanu. Negreanu, who quit this event just two days ago due to a ruling dispute, re-entered late in Day 1 and now has a shot to win the very event that he dropped out of. Negreanu is second in chips and no stranger to high pressure final tables, so he will most certainly be the one to watch as this table progresses.
The 2010 World Series of Poker Main Event champion Jonathan Duhamel also navigated through this stacked field to find a seat at the unofficial final table. Duhamel seems to be riding a hot streak at this stop, as his entry into this event came fresh off of a 3rd place finish in a €2,000 No-Limit Hold'em side event here at the EPT Barcelona. Duhamel pocketed €62,600 for that finish but is now eyeing today's top prize of €390,700.
Speaking of recent deep runs, both Ole Schemion and November Niner David Benefield will also hit the felt today. Less than a week ago, both Schemion and Benefield final tabled the Super High Roller, finishing sixth and fifth respectively. Today could mean redemption for either player as they seek the title of high roller champion.
Cards are set to fly at 12:00 pm local time for this stacked final table. Be sure to stay tuned to PokerNews for all of the latest updates!
