 Andrey Andreev 12 players remain out of the original starting field of 215 entries, and it is Russian businessman Andrey Andreev who is the chip leader with 2,270,000. 

Big names still in the competition include 2014 WSOP Main Event winner Martin Jacobson, Max Altergott, Dominik Nitsche, Steve O'Dwyer and, not to forget, Dan Smith who played most of yesterday with food poisoning. After reading on PokerStar Blog how ill he was, one can only applaud him for making it this far.

"Smith is currently coping with a bad case of food poisoning. And when I say coping, I mean he's dragging his way through every waking minute. He has a bin nearby, a constant stream of water, and a plan to make it through the next two levels. He also has about two dozen people keeping an eye on him. If he can make it to the end of the day with chips it will be one of the performances of the festival," wrote Stephen Barley on PokerStars Blog.

Below are the remaining 12 players - all of whom are guaranteed €86,800 each (the winner will get €1,114,000).

Andrey Andreev (Russia) 2,270,000
Charlie Carrel (United Kingdom) 1,534,000
Dario Sammartino (Italy) 1,300,000
Jeremy Ausmus (United States) 1,126,000

Only 12 players left from quite a big field for a high roller.Some excellent players are still in the running including Jacobson,Altergott,1Smith and O'Dwyer who are all very experienced in these games but all very short stacked.Charlie Carrel is having a good 12 months and the only UK entry left.

This is a very impressive list of well known players left in and it is pretty impossible to say who's going to win. Max Altergott seems to do well in these kind of events and is my tentative pick to win

Now the next day and the tournament is over,I said Carrel had been having a good year and he proved it by winning this high roller for a cool 1.1 million euros,not bad for a 21 year old!!
O'Dwyer proved he is always dangerous and managed to go from last place to 3rd and pick up over half a million Euros.

I am surprised none of you got on the glorious food poisoning angle, since that is some DEFCON 3 level worth of tinfoil-hatting if you know what I mean - especially if he's got the bug from some fellow player and not by eating seafood at some backalley restaurant in Monte Carlo.
