€25,500 High Roller

Charlie Carrel, UK (1,534,000)

Charles Carrel

Charlie Carrel hails from the UK and is making the fourth result from the two most recent European Poker Tour stops, this EPT Grand Final and the last one in Malta. Now with over $400,000 in live tournament earnings, Carrel recently scored €183,800 for a fifth-place finish in the EPT Malta €10,300 High Roller.

While that result is Carrel's largest, it wasn't a win. Carrel's biggest live win came in November of last year when he topped a field of 212 entries in the Grosvenor UK Poker Tour Grand Final £2,125 Main Event. He beat Paul Nunes in heads-up play and earned £108,625 as the top prize.

His specialty is six-max cash games and multi-table tournaments, and he's certainly making the most of experience in the latter with a deep run here in one of the most prestigious events in the world.

Carrel will enter Day 3 second in chips with 1.534 million.
