After 21 levels of 60 minutes each, the record-breaking field of 231 entries in the 2016 PokerStars and Monte-Carlo® Casino EPT Grand Final €25,750 High Roller has been whittled down to the last 12 hopefuls and 2015 November Niner Zvi Stern leads the survivors with 1.638 million. All remaining players have €92,250 locked up for their efforts, but all eyes are set on the first-place payout of €1.197 million.
British poker pro Max Silver follows in second with 1.342 million and Alexandros "mexican222" Kolonias (1.338 million), Papazian (1.231 million), Ivan Deyra (1.16 million), and Rafael Da Silva Moraes (1.026 million) also bagged up with seven-figure chip counts for the final day of the event. Papazian finished runner up to Charlie Carrel one year ago in this very tournament and aims to do one spot better this time around.
The other finalists include [Removed:2] (907,000), three times World Poker Tour champion Anthony Zinno (816,000), Saar Wilf (509,000) and Thomas Miller (383,000) as well as Ramin Hajiyev (366,000) are the two short stacks upon restart.
