PSC Barcelona: Andre Akkari Leads Main Event Final 16, Tollerene Chops €25K High Roller

After Day 4 of the 2017 PSC Barcelona €5,300 Main Event, Team PokerStars pro Andre Akkari leads the final 16 players.

Akkari eliminated several players during Day 3, including Swedish pro Erik Friberg and partypoker's Patrick Leonard, who lost his chips to Akkari with ace-king against pocket queens. While Akkari is clearly the most well-known pro still left, players like PSC Monte-Carlo Main Event winner Raffaele Sorrentino are also still left fighting for the title.

All remaining players have guaranteed at least €61,400 payday by now, but there's over €1,4 million up for grabs for the eventual winner.

High Roller action continues

In addition to the Main Event, there has been several High Roller events as well in Barcelona, like the €10,300 buy-in re-entry No-Limit Hold'em event, which kicked off yesterday with Day 1. The €10K HR has already attracted over 520 players, including Viktor "Isildur1" Blom, Jake Cody, Steve O'Dwyer, Isaac Haxton and many more.
