In social media, Chris wrote that he played this tournament with a heavy heart, because he received some bad news when he arrived in Barcelona. “Yesterday was a pretty disappointing day as I got a message on my arrival in Barcelona that my father was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. A few hours later, I learned that one of my close friends had died of a heart attack. A couple of hours later, I got a call saying that my dog, who had been with me since the age of 13, had been diagnosed with kidney disease and pancreatitis, and they didn’t know how long it would last. I’m very upset and will be playing with a heavy heart this week.

As for  Uri Reichenstein, this was the second largest win of his career, the biggest prize he won in 2016 in the Main Event EPT Barcelona, when he took second place. Over the last 3 years, in this series, Uri has won prizes 11 times.
