EPT Monte Carlo: Day 1 Chip Counts

Late night note: Just before 4:30am, 2005 WSOP Champion Joe Hachem got heads up with online stalwart MrSmokey1 in the richest Sit&Go in EPT history, a record $10,000 per player. In the the first of the two biggest hands of heads up play, MrSmokey1 got his money in with AT versus Hachem's KQ. A queen on the river doubled Hachem up. Ultimately, MrSmokey1 picked the wrong time to make a move and pushed in his stack with 62o. Hachem looked down to see pocket aces. The bullets held up and Hachem took home the lion's share of the money. While the exact financial terms are between the players, it appeared to be a 70/30 split, which is to say, neither man walked away without some thick wads in his pocket. As I type, they are all going out for breakfast together...Hachem is buying. And as it is nearing 5:00am, I should be ending my night as well. The EPT Grand Final resumes at 2pm Monte Carlo time. Your chip counts are below. --BW
