Posted on Tuesday, October 18, 2016 by "T".
The last day of the 2016 Monte-Carlo One Drop Extravaganza had a big cash game and a €100,000 freeze-out tournament on the schedule. There had been cash games (up to €1,000/€2,000) running the previous three days but on the final day it was canceled due to lack of interest.

Dont know this one either. But the amount of money he won is a very nice one.

well we can see that there are many dudes out there who have plenty of money and can't figure out where to put it, so they decide that gambling is the way to go. i suggest to nationalize their cash and donate it to the friendly and democratic nation of north korea, for infrastructure projects or such..

Many congratulations to Paul Phua on winning this event and the first prize. I am surprised that they only managed to get thirteen entries and i thought that there would be a few more

really such a small number of players is quite strange ... no one wanted to play? or there's some other reason? can be at this time there was something more interesting and people have decided not to play and to do this than something interesting

Probably the tournament had a medicore promoter who did not realized they cross scheduled the event with something more important or they did not gave enough complemetary hotel suites away to the pros and whos never showed up in big numbers. End of story.
