Super High Roller of the EPT Grand Final: Jason Mercier as chipleader

Sporting Monte-Carlo hosted since Monday the Super High Roller tournament of the European Poker Tour in Monte-Carlo. This event and exceptional poker tournament with the huge buy-in of € 100,000 gathered a field of 50 players and numerous familiar faces were present at the start of the Day1. Among them, we could distinguish Phil Ivey, Jason Mercier, Tobias Reinkemeier, Sam Trickett, Daniel Negreanu, Sorel Mizzi, Scott Seiver, Antonio Esfandiari, Patrik Antonius, Tom Marchese, Marvin Rettenmaier, Viktor « Isildur1 » Blom, Dan Smith, Isaac Haxtoon, John Juanda, Erik Seidel or Joseph Cheong. The champion 2012 of the EPT Grand Final Super High Roller, Justin Bonomo, was also present to defend his title.

After two days of competition, the field was reduced to seven for the final table: Sorel Mizzi, Mike Watson, Jason Mercier, Timothy Adams, Max Altergott, Vladimir Troyanovsky and Scott Seiver. Since Monday, Jason Mercier showed himself as the strong man of the event by taking the lead of the chipcount from the Day1. 30 poker players returned to the competition during the Day 2 but many of them have been eliminated during the day and the first one eliminated of the ITM, at the 11th place, received a gain of € 218,300. Jason Mercier keeps his position as chipleader with a big stack of 4,165,000 chips that is the double of his nearest rival in the person of Vladimir Troyanovsky (2,150,000). Just behind, we find Sorel Mizzi (2,140,000) and Max Altergott (2,110,000). The rest of the field is at less than one million chips : Timothy Adams (830,000), Scott Seiver (625,000) and Mike Watson (480,000), the short stack of this final table.
