EPT8 Monaco $25,000 High Roller: The return

ept-thumb-promo.jpgThe High Rollers are back in Monaco today. Less than 11 hours after bagging up their stacks at the end of Day 1, the 45 survivors from a heated opening ten levels in this $25,000 buy in event have returned to push on through, into the money and then on to an eight-handed final table.

Trimming a field of 45 down to the mandatory eight can often take some time. But bubble play at a High Roller event tends to be markedly less tortuous than it can be in any regular tournament. Having wagered a quarter to play, most aren't really concerned with picking up a slight return on their money. It's all about a big score, and today's the day they will be trying to get a stack to go into the deepest stages.

As action progresses - and it is due to begin at noon - you can follow blow-by-blow coverage and chip-count updates on our live coverage pages. We will apply a smattering of colour on the rest of the Blog.

So settle down and we'll begin. Here are the starting tables and stacks, etc.
