The EPT Grand Final €10,600 Main Event of 2015 PokerStars and Monte-Carlo® Casino is on its last leg and the final table has been set with a dozen players remaining in the €25,000 High Roller.
It is a single entry tournament, which had caught the attention of 215 entries, consisting of 162 unique on Day and 3 on Day 2 and 42 reentries on Day 1 and 11 reentries on Day 2 to a total of 53.
This has generated a prize money pool of €5,267,500 and the eventual winner will be pocketing a cool €1.114 million eventually. Ten levels of play saw 12 poker players remaining at the table and the best chances of winning the title is poised for Andrey Andreev, the Russian businessman and amateur player with a stack of 2.27 million in possession to make the pitch for top place.
There are other players in contention and they include Charlie Carrel with 1.534 million, Jermey Ausmus with 1.126 million, Martin Jacobson and Steve O’Dwyer with 628,000 and 356,000 respectively. The day’s action began with a few players joining the fray at the last moment, but Vanessa Selbst, Phil Ivey and Gus Hansen were not among them, as they were seen in Monaco. Out of the hundred plus fields of players only 31 among them would have the opportunity of earning a pay.
There were some players who did not have anything to show, and they included Mustapha Kanit, Daniel Colman, Mike “Timex” McDonald, Faraz Jaka, and Philip Gruissem, the defending champion, and more from the Team PokerStars such as Bertrand “ElkY” Grospellier, Eugene Katchalov, Liv Boeree and also Daniel Negreanu, stood eliminated owing to short of chips.
