Day 2 of the €50,000 Super High Roller, or the highest buy-in event on the EPT Season 13 Barcelona schedule, was completed early on Monday with nine players left to contend for a seat at the official eight-handed final table and the first-place prize of €1.3 million.
Play will resume today at 2 pm local time with Canadian Timothy Adams as the chip leader. The player ended the tournament’s second day with an overwhelming advantage over his opponents, holding more than 8 million in chips. Adams is followed by none other but high roller-meister Fedor Holz. The young German bagged and tagged 4,970,000 chips when Day 2 action was completed.
Adams is a player with considerable former experience in high roller tournaments. Most recently, the Canadian poker pro won the Bellagio Cup XII $25,000 No-Limit Hold’em High Roller for a first-place payout of $386,400. He is also a frequent entry in the high roller tournaments hosted by Aria Resort and Casino in Las Vegas.
Adams’ WSOP gold bracelet is also a noteworthy career highlight. The player won the coveted piece in 2012 for besting the field of the $2,500 No-Limit Hold’em Four-Handed. The Canadian has accumulated live tournament earnings of $3,424,401 so far.
