EPT Grand Final High Roller: Davidi Kitai Leads Final 9

9 players reentered before Day 2 of the EPT Grand Final High Roller kicked off, which boosted the total amount of entries from 205 to 214 (the largest High Roller on European soil in EPT history).

Benny Spindler held the chip lead over the remaining 104 players when Day 2 kicked off. He continued to play well in Day 2 but eventually finished in 17th place for €63,000 after losing his last chips (all in with queen-seven vs. ace-seven) to Pascal Lefrancois, who bagged up 569k at the end of play (currently ranked 7).

The money bubble popped when 31 players remained (they earned a cash of €46,150 or more). Unfortunately, a few of the biggest names missed out on the money, including Daniel Negreanu, Erik Seidel, Bertrand Grospellier, Sam Trickett and Viktor Blom. In total, 9 players made it through Day 2 with Davidi Kitai (picture) holding the chip lead (2,208,000). Following Kitai at the top of counts are notables such as Philipp Gruissem (1,470,000) and Scott Seiver (1,553,000).

The remaining 9 players will battle it out for a €1,105,000 first place prize at today's final table. So far, they are all guaranteed a minimum payday of €113,250. Check back on Monday morning for a final table recap!

Final Table Line Up:
Seat, Player, Chips
1 Byron Kaverman 1,813,000
2 Stephen Chidwick 991,000
3 Chenxiang Miao 674,000
4 Pascal Lefrancois 596,000
5 Davidi Kitai 2,208,000
6 Scott Seiver 1,553,000
7 John Juanda 355,000

Well, I'm rooting for Chenxiang Miao cuz he has the funniest name at the FT. The finish of Mr. Blom didn't suprise me.

Phillip Gruissem is through again in another high roller event. The amount of times this man seems to cash in these elite events is unreal and you have to take your hat off to him for doing so

Gruissem is just bombing these high rollers, final tabled another event.
He's a seriously good player. Interetsing to see Juanda in an FT too, seems like he's drifted a bit since his heyday. Scott Seiver always in the mix too it seems.

Juanda had trips!

He is a nice guy, I hope he can still make a comeback.

Anything can happen. If one of the biggest stakes miss some chips to one of the shorties when all-in, they will be buying new battles and more time of tourney, as no one will sell his place cheap.
