A record 842 players took to the felt earlier this week and after 13 hours of play today we finally crowned a champion, Canadian Glen Chorny. Glen entered the final table with the chip lead and held it for most of the day to finally emerge victorious and become the 2008 PokerStars.com EPT Grand Final Champion.
Chorny earned an astounding $3,198,500 for his win, the largest prize ever handed out at a European poker tournament.
Congratulations to all the final table participants for a fantastic tournament and a grueling yet entertaining day of poker today.
That wraps up our coverage from beautiful Monte Carlo. Our next stop on the tournament trail lands us in Salzberg, Austria for the PokerNews Cup - we look forward to your company then!
