Ahadpur Khangah began with a chip-lead at the Super High Roller EPT Barcelona with more than 3 million chips and continued to stay on. On the other hand, poker’s biggest names like Patrik Antonius and Daniel Negreanu fail to make the final table.
Latest tweets from PokerStars Blog reveal updates straight from the tables:
If looks could kill…
Patrik Antonius is the latest man out of the #EPTBarcelona €100K Super High Roller. But who was on the other end of these daggers, and took over the chip lead?

Antonius departed when his pocket eight ran into Matthias Eibeinger’s king on the flop. Soon to join the rails were biggies like Stephen Chidwick and David Peters.
Hopes, however, were still alive in Daniel Negreanu until the field returned after the dinner break. The PokerStars Pro, after a not-so-good run at the WSOP, was hoping for something better out of the SHR EPT, Barcelona. It was down to twelve players including Badziakouski, Adams, Pollak, Kaverman, Kenney and Mateos when Negreanu ended his run. Cary Katz, with the help of his aces, toppled most of his stack. And, in just a few minutes, the Real Kid of poker lost it all when Timothy Adams revealed his kings against Negreanu’s big blind.
Haven't played any poker since WSOP so definitely looking forward to EPT Barcelona! Starts off with a 100k then the main event.
It's been a long time since I've actually looked forward to traveling, but Barcelona is just so awesome.

Irani poker player Khangah put up an exemplary show after he won a three-way-all-in with his pocket kings. Even the sturdy Adrian Mateos couldn’t sustain and hit the rail in the eleventh place. Super High Roller hero Bryn Kenney also lost to Khangah and left at tenth. The final table is down to nine who will lock horns to finalise the winner.
It’s A Superrr High Roller!
A total of 54 entries (including re-entries) at the €100K buy-in SHR PokerStars EPT has gathered a prize pool of over €5million. All eyes are set on the first prize which is a whopping €1,650,300. Going by the calculations, seven spots are slated to be paid.
