EPT Grand Final: 41 Players Remaining After 3 Days Of Play

Tags: David Williams, EPT Grand Final, Malte Moennig, Team PokerStars Pro, Ville Wahlbeck.
Posted on 30 April 2014 by "T".

Day 3 of the 2014 PokerStars and Monte-Carlo® Casino European Poker Tour Grand Final Main Event (buy-in €10,600) saw 123 players returning to the tables. After several 90-minute levels of play, the field was narrowed down from 123 to just 41 players, who will battle for a seat at the final table over the next two days.

Malte Moennig, a 27-year-old player from Cologne, Germany, who qualified for the tournament online on PokerStars, finished the day as the chip leader (1.15m). Moennig is the only player who will bring over a million chips into Day 4 and he is now guaranteed (next player to be eliminated will get 24,400 Euro) to nearly double his total tournament earnings no matter where he finishes in the tournament.

There are two Team PokerStars Pros left in the mix of players, Ville Wahlbeck (283k) and David Williams (253k), but, unfortunately, there aren't many big names left in the tournament besides them. Well, it takes lots of skill to go this deep in such a prestigious tournament as the EPT Grand Final Main Event is, so we are guaranteed to watch a very exciting final table (€1,240,000 put aside for the winner) no matter who's on it.

Check back tomorrow morning for another update.

41 players left and only David Williams i have heard of. These tournaments are becoming more and more difficult to win for the older guard with all these youngsters coming through

The russians either gamble their stacks to enormous sizes or they bust very fast. Smile

The prizepool is pretty big this year, the winner will win some serious money.

When there is more than a million dollars for the winner, the tournament is getting serious.

I wonder who will be the lucky one.

A bunch of unheard of players will battle it out alongside... David Williams lol all for over a mill euros, crazy.
You have to love the fact some random can win the money. All about the cards.
Lets see what happens next.

These big prizepools are always exciting,

the win can make from an unknown player a poker star.
