Congratulations for these players who work exaggeratedly to earn nice money. You can realize how hard these games are, when if there are 5 players remaining and they played for 9 hours, to eliminate only two players. It's too hard and deserves all the respect for it.

A good prize for the actual buy in. Another player that i dont know, but i guess as the time goes, many new professional players come out. And if you are not watching closely the game, then there is no chance, to know what is going on. A bright example, i dont know a single one from the winners list

now this is great score,from big buy in of 5300 e,which is not for lot of people who play poker,to win 600 K is something !you cant find so many tournaments with this kind of prize pool and almost 1000 players!but in monte carlo everything is big and expensive!
Of course it happens that at the end of a tournament for a very long time several players continue to play and no one leaves the game .... but there are other cases when Yes, at the final table people finish the game one by one and the winners are determined very quickly .... everything happens differently .... this time was a long time
