The 2013 PokerStars and Monte-Carlo® Casino European Poker Tour Grand Final will finish this spectacular 10-day festival in style over the next three days with the highly-anticipated €100,000 Super High Roller.
The smaller sibling of this event, the €25,000 High Roller, was a single re-entry tournament, but the shackles have been taken off for this one. Registration is open until the beginning of Day 2, and the players can re-enter as many times as they want up until that point. Yes, you heard that right: the very deep-pocketed players can fire as any €100,000 bullets as they wish.
Last season's Grand Final Super High Roller took place at the beginning of the festival and drew 45 entries. Justin Bonomo was the last player standing, and he took home the €1.64 million first-place prize after he defeated Tobias Reinkemeier heads-up.
Both these players are planned to be back and will be joined by a star-studded cast that to include Phil Ivey, Patrik Antonius, Antonio Esfandiari, Sam Trickett, Gus Hansen, Isaac Haxton, Scott Seiver, Talal Shakerchi, Dan Smith and Philipp Gruissem.
Steven Silverman won the €25,000 High Roller last night after winning his way in through a €3,000 satellite. He won €775,400 for that victory, and he's playing today to see how far he can "run the gauntlet" as they say. Also playing are Tony Gregg — second place to Silverman — and Team PokerStars Pros Daniel Negreanu and Jason Mercier, who both came very close to winning the €10,000 Main Event after making the final table yesterday.
Each player that enters will begin with 250,000 in tournament chips, and the levels will last 60 minutes. Cards are due in the air at 12 p.m. CET, so be sure to join the PokerNews Live Reporting Team back here then for the start of play. This is one you surely do not want to miss!
