EPT Monte-Carlo: A real success for the main event
The main event at 10,600 of the tournament European Poker Tour (EPT) Monte-Carlo 2014 started on last Saturday in the poker room of the Sporting Club of Monte-Carlo, in Monaco. The event gathered 641 players all in all, composed of numerous international stars. Thus, we notice an increase of the attendance compared with the edition 2013. The total prizepool amounts to 6.5 million and the 95 first players will be able to be entitled with it. The greatest part, which is amounted at 1,240,000, will be of course reserved to the winner. At the end of the two first qualifying days, numerous notables of the game had already had to give up. We quote among others Daniel Negreanu, Gus Hansen, Antonio Esfandiari, Viktor Bloom, Isaac Haxton, Erik Seidel, Jason Mercier, Vanessa Selbst, Phil Ivey, Bertrand Grospellier and Chris Moneymaker. But despite that fact, the field of this poker tournament is still very high. Let us note that the tournament EPT Monte-Carlo is currently entering in its third day of competition, and there are only 123 players in the running.
Philipp Gruissem, Ole Schemion, Scott Clements, the current champion Steve ODwyer, Sam Trickett and Ana Marquez count among the notable players present in the playroom for this day 3. As for French players, Marc Uzan, Sylvain Loosli, Abdulazis Abdulaziz and Idris Ambraisse are in the list of survivors. The latter holds the second largest number of chips. Concerning the place of chipleader, it is awarded to the runner-up of the PCA High Roller, Vladimir Troyanovskiy. Marcello Marigliano completes the top 3.
