As has been the case every day for the last week, there’s a lot happening today at PokerStars and Monte-Carlo®Casino EPT Grand Final — even apart from the €10,000 EPT Grand Final Main Event, that is. They raised the roof over the tournament room earlier in the afternoon to help shine some light on the proceedings.
In addition to a couple of satellites there are a half-dozen other tournaments playing out as the festival continues to march forward. A couple helped get things going at noon, the biggest being Event #43, a €5,000 pot-limit Omaha eight-handed tournament that attracted 46 runners to build a €223,100 prize pool.
Timo Pfutzenreuter, Davidi Kitai, Max Silver, and Emil Patel were part of the group participating when cards first went in the air in that one. Yevgeniy Timoshenko and Talal Shakerchi were also among those taking part.
Lovers of non-standard tourney fare have options today as well, with several tables’ worth of players already at it in Event #45, the €550 limit Omaha hi/low. A €500+€500+€100 NLHE Turbo bounty tournament (Event #47) starts later tonight, as will a €100 NLHE “Deuces Wild” Turbo tournament (Event #48) with unlimited €50 rebuys that should satisfy late-night action-seekers.
