EPT Barcelona - Composite - City Skyline and Tournament LogoThe EPT100 Barcelona, which has set multiple attendance records so far, continued to roll on Monday with the start of the High Roller event.

Prior to the EPT100 Barcelona getting underway, tournament organizers knew that the turnout for the High Roller event would be big, though they likely had no clue that it would be THIS big.

Day 1 of the event is still ongoing as of the time that this article was being written, but the numbers are already staggering - 283 players and a total of 53 re-entries as of this moment. One notable player is skipping the event, however, as Daniel Negreanu posted this to his Twitter feed a few hours ago:

"Skipping the biggest high roller in EPT history to see Flamenco dancing and do a wine tour. Yup."

The big turnout means that there will be millions of Euros at stake as the buy-in to this event is €10,300.

To give you an idea of how big this event is, last year's High Roller ended up attracting a total of 138 unique players and 42 re-entries. The tournament field has already doubled over last year and Day 1 of the event hasn't even concluded. That's impressive.


Day 4 of the EPT100 Barcelona main event is now in the books.
