Belarus PokerStars qualifier Andrei Konopelko is chip leader going in to Day 4 of the record-breaking #EPT100 Barcelona Main Event. The 50-year-old from Minsk - who won his seat in a €530 satellite on PokerStars - has 1,451,000.

There are 102 players left from the 292 who started Day 3 today. The overall field was a staggering 1496 players from 71 countries, a record for EPT events in Europe (beating the 1,240-strong EPT6 Sanremo won by Liv Boeree).

Other players with sizable stacks for Day 4 include EPT Berlin champion and Triple Crown winner Davidi Kitai (who got his third WSOP bracelet this summer), EPT Prague champion Martin Finger and Team PokerStars Pro Jan Heitmann.

This season's Barcelona champion will receive a life-changing first prize of €1,261,000. In all, 239 players are getting a share of the €7,255,600 prize pool.

In addition to their cash prize and trophy, the new champion will also receive a stunning watch from luxury Swiss brand SLYDE, the Official Watch Sponsor for EPT Season 11 Main Events and High Rollers.

Joining forces with the Estrellas Poker Tour once again, the EPT11 Barcelona Poker Festival features 44 events at Casino Barcelona including the €1,100 Estrellas Main Event, the €5,300 EPT Main Event and the prestigious €50k Super High Roller.
