Flying the flag for Scotland and MainEventTravel: Fraser MacIntyre joint chip leader in 888Live Barcelona High Roller

By Mad Harper

MainEventTravel.com’s CEO Fraser MacIntyre is joint chip leader in the 888Live Make It Big Festival €2,200 High Roller in Barcelona. MacIntyre, a Scotsman who started running MainEventTravel nearly three years ago, has more than $600k in live tournament winnings including a tremendous runner-up finish at EPT Madrid in 2012. He’s currently ranked #4 on Scotland’s all time money list - and sharing the chip lead with .Spanish player Sergi Escote.

There are just nine players left in the prestige 888Live Make It Big Festival event which attracted 70 entries and generated a prize pool of €134,400, nearly three times the €50k guarantee.

The players are on break, getting ready for the unofficial final table. All nine are now in the money with the winner taking €40k and a min-cash worth €4,150. Also still in:  fellow Scot Gordon Huntly, 888Live Rozvadov Main Event champion Catalin Pop, 888poker ambassador Dominik Nitsche and Day 1 chip leader Sergi Escote.

MainEventTravel is 888Live’s Official Travel Partner for the festival offering great hotel deals in Barcelona. And if you fancy some sun, there’s still time to get out to the 888Live Make It Big Festival for Day 1b of the €500,000 guaranteed Main Event which starts at 6pm tomorrow.
