The PokerStars and Monte-Carlo©Casino EPT €25,000 High Roller is down to 24 players.
The chip leader at the moment is Oleksii Khoroshenin. Khoroshenin is third on the Ukrainian all-time money list and is a former EPT champion after he took down EPT Vienna back in 2014. Khoroshenin's best result in an EPT 25k is a third place in Malta two years ago where he took home €217,400.
Close behind him is Bryn Kenney, who has a rich pedigree in High Roller tournaments, having taken down the €100,000 Super High Roller this time last year in Monte Carlo for €1,784,500, and finishing fifth in the €25,000 Single Day High Roller earlier this week. He also is one of a select few players to have won a PokerStars-branded 25k, 50k and 100k (PCA 2017, PCA 2017 & Monte Carlo 2016)
