Let's Bury the EPT Barcelona Open: Sebastian Ruthernburg Won It

The EPT Barcelona Open wrapped, which is a good thing. Not a good thing is no more Spanish models like Ariadne Artiles. Take the good with the bad, we guess. View more Ariadne here.

There Have Been Things We're More Excited About Than The EPT Barcelona Final Table

Even half-Spanish, half-Italian Playboy model, FHM featured babe, and NFL cheerleader Danielle Gamba would be bored with this final table.

The following is a brief list of things we're more excited about than the EPT Barcelona Open final table:

  • Filling out paperwork for new healthcare plan
  • Listening to current/first wives talk about what they bought at Target
  • A new season of The Mind of Mencia
  • Sawing own arm off
  • Carrying on a spirited debate with anyone who believes in a 9/11 conspiracy
  • Reading The Theory of Poker

Martin Nielsen takes the chip lead to the final table, stacked at 1,234,000 He's followed by Sebastian Ruthenberg with 1,132,000. The singular version of David Kita, Davidi Kitai, has 810,000. And Jason Mercier comes in among the short-stacks with 434,000.

EPT Barcelona Open: The Plural Version of David Kita Leads the Way

Let's keep the Spanish model thing going. It's working well for us. And Almudena Fernandez, who is from Spain (where the EPT Barcelona Open is still going on), is way more attractive than Davidi Kitai or the EPT logo. View more pics of her here. And hey Poquer-Red, if you have any suggestions for other girls, let us know.

Action was fast and furiousTM at the EPT Barcelona Open on Day 2, as 203 played down to 36.

Most of the big names that survived to Day 2 won't be around for Day 3. The chip leader is

the plural version of David Kita, Davidi Katai, with 544,500. We first met Davidi at the 2008 WSOP, where he banked his first bracelet and cashed a total of three time.

This tourney threatens to be a big time "friends and family" final table, as the only notable names (to most people) remaining are Lorenzo Lamas (259,000) and Joe Pelton (226,000).

EPT Barcelona Open Breaks Records

Gabriela Vergara is from Venezuela, home of that douchebag nutcase Hugo Chavez. Regardless, this likely means Gabriela has some Spanish blood in her somewhere, right? Whatever. View more here.

Day 1B of the EPT Barcelona Open brought in 327 players, raising the tourney's total to 619, which while we're no math majors, based on what we hear that's some kind of new record.

As Poker Listings points out:

"EPT Barcelona provides a striking contrast to WPT Legends, which took place barely a week ago, and saw its field decrease by roughly 25% compared to last year. Barcelona, on the hand, saw its player count grow by 76 players this year."

The total prize pool for the event is just about $1.9M.

Sebastian Ruthenberg and Mikael Lundell ended the day as chip leaders, stacked at.  110,000 Other big names making it to Day 2 include but are not limited to Sorel Mizzi, Mats Rahmn, and Joe Pelton.

Big name busts include Daniel Negreanu, Scotty Nguyen, and Isabelle Mercier.

EPT Barcelona: Lorena Van Heerde Nowhere To Be Found

Day 1A of the EPT Barcelona Open brought in 292 players, none of which was half Spanish, half Dutch model Lorena Van Heerde. View more pics of her here.

The EPT Barcelona Open almost hit its cap of 300 entrants, as 300 minus 8 showed for Day 1A action. Among those were 2007 WSOPE winner Annette Obrestad, a woman, 2004 WSOP champ Greg Raymer, and Vanessa Rousso, who went to Duke. None of them made it past Day 1A though.

Leading the way after Day 1A is Michael Murra, stacked at 87,000. Other big name big stacks include Lorenzo Lamas (61,000) and past EPT winner and kid who starred in that Star Wars video, Glen Chorny (55,000).

Making through to Day 2 (albeit short-stacked) include two hostages from The November NineTM, including our pick to win it David "Chino" Rheem and Scott Montgomery.
