After 58 unique players started, with a total of 77 entries, the field has been cut down to the final nine. Just one last table of players are still in contention for the first prize of over €1 million.
Leading the charge is the animated and cheerful Morten Klein. The seasoned recreational player from Norway made best friends with Scott Seiver and Mustapha Kanit yesterday, and has an entire day to get to know them even better. While Klein brings 3,740,000 to the table (62 big blinds), Seiver (1,310,000, 22 big blinds) and Kanit (690,000, 12 big blinds) will have to start out a bit shorter.
Daniel Colman is at it again, continuing the hot streak he started in Monte Carlo at the end of EPT Season 10. He won the €100,000 Super High Roller there for €1,539,300, then he won the World Series of Poker Big One for One Drop this summer for $15,306,668, and now has his eyes on the top prize here. He'll have to come a bit from behind, though, as he'll start the day with 1,420,000 (24 big blinds).
