PokerStars and Monte-Carlo®Casino EPT Grand Final High Roller Final Table
Season 10 draws to a close here today at the 2014 PokerStars and Monte-Carlo® Casino EPT Grand Final at the Salles des Etoiles room at Le Sporting with action from both the Main Event and coverage right here of the High Roller.
Some of the biggest names in poker entered the €25,000 High Roller that started on Wednesday. There were 214 entries for this event made up of 159 unique entries and 55 reentries generating a total prize pool of €5,243,000.
Interestingly, only one of four min-cashers finished the event in profit, that being Govert Metaal. The others — Adrian Mateos, Alexander Uskov and David Peters — all reentered for a total outlay of €50,000.
The winner will receive a whopping €1,105,000 as well as a stunning watch from luxury Swiss brand SLYDE, the Official Watch Sponsor for EPT Season 10 Main Events and High Rollers.
It was in the early hours of Friday morning when the unofficial final table of nine was set, play will resume in less than an hour and what a final table we have to bring you.
Davidi Kitai was the overnight chip leader with 2,208,000 but it is all to play for and with such an array of talent on display fortunes can change on a single hand or even a single card.
Three of the other big names in contention with their eyes on first prize are Scott Seiver, Philipp Gruissem and John Juanda, who will begin play as the short stack with 355,000.
