It took about five hours of play for 17 players to become a final table of 8 in Day 5 of the 2014 PokerStars and Monte-Carlo EPT Grand Final Main Event. Great Britain's Jack Salter will lead the way to the final with 5,170,000 after an amazing comeback in the past 2 days.
According to PokerStars Blog, Salter entered Day 4 as one of the shortest stacks but eventually managed to turn things around for the better. Now, he has an amazing chance of winning his first EPT title and a life-changing €1,240,000 in prize money!

It would be nice to see an event where the players don't spend all of their precious time massaging their chips. I know it's a stress release and some sort of habit to make the ones who don't like the sound of it angry, but quite honestly it pissing me off greatly too. It just unnecessary to give sound of the table, since the commentators going to speak over it, therefore I don't need to hear the goddamn chirring for hours and hours...
A table of nobodies, but someone will become a somebody after this even if only being sponsored solid for a year off the publicity it brings. Apart from anything else the pot is mega, I can see this being a bit of a slow table, people afraid to make moves.
Hm, where are our german heros from the last days? No- it is ok that players from other countrys are in the leading position. It was verry interesting to see , which guys are survive to play the hu and win this great ept final.
Short stack becomes chip leader, where have i seen this before? It happened to me once or twice and i think about those moments so often when i remember my poker stories that it seems like it works as a rule, when is rare to happen, at least in my poker resumee.
