Big differences between the first two prizes and all the others. And poker have this fabulous factor: for reaching 7th, one will be getting more than €200k, which is an awesome prize, but the person in question will keep thinking he could have done more to try to get the €1M.

Posted by Macubaas: The first prize should end up being pretty sick if you ask me when you consider that those are euros and not US dollars, i think thats over 2 mil dollars
I hope that some time in the future there will be vids from this event, especially with the final table.
To Macubaas: there is everytime live video of this events on Pokerstars (eptlive.com). There are even multiple broadcasts with different languages (Dutch included for me) and maybe even Romanian. I saw the game yesterday live and even with the holecards exposed! It's more interesting that way cause you know everytime what moves they make with which cards. Mercier lost in the end after reraising Altergott all in with K7 of d on the turn, Altergott had QQ and called. Mercier still had 30% of winning because of flush draw and another 7 or a K would save him but he lost the hand.
