2015 EPT Barcelona Super High Roller - Day 2 Report

As said yesterday, with registration for the $50k Super High Roller of the 2015 EPT only closing on Day 2, some more buy-ins were expected and indeed, 6 more of them came, taking the already record-breaking entries to a grand total of 99. With that, the size of the prize-pool was finally set as well: some €4.75 million went into the middle, of which €1.22 million will come to rest in the eventual winner's pockets.
10 levels of action went into the day, at the end of which Australia's Michael Egan had the largest stack of chips bagged. Egan finished with some 5.4 million chips. Christoph Vogelsang had a great Day 2 run as well: he ended up with 4.7 million chips, enough for second place. Dzmitry Urbanovich also had a large stack bagged: he will start the final day with 4.3 million chips.

Egan played great poker on Day 2. His rise to the top of the pops was not the result of a lucky massive pot, but rather, of several smaller - skillfully played-for - pots, which he kept landing through the day. Mike McDonald, one of the highest-profile pros at the table, was also bounced by Egan, after the two of them ended up in a K,K vs 2,2 showdown. Ivan Luca, who was also involved in the hand that turned out to be McDonald's last, made the final cut as well, with 2.5 million chips to his name.
Viacheslav Buldygin became the official bubble-boy of the event. Fedor Holz, Stephen Chidwick and Igor Kurganov all made the money eventually.
