EPT Monte Carlo: Two point five big ones

April 30, 2009

Day two is now underway – and records have been broken. The announcement of “Shuffle up and deal!” came only 13 minutes after the scheduled noon start, which has got to be an all-time best.

But even more impressive is the prize pool, also announced today. The 935 who turned up in Monte Carlo for the EPT Grand Final produced a total pot of €9,350,000, of which the winner, decided this weekend, will take €2,300,000. That’s €280,000 more than Glen Chorny earned last year and is the biggest tournament first prize in European poker history.

Congratulations all.

Coming back today are 528 players still in with a chance of taking home that monster prize. The full details of the prize pool, and the prize-winners, as and when they are decided, will be available on the prize-pool page. Or below, if you care to look there:
