The final table is set at the PokerStars and Monte-Carlo®Casino EPT Grand Final Main Event. 558 players (entries) have hit the rail over the past 5 days, which leaves only six players with the chance of becoming the champion of this event and, more importantly, €1.1 million richer! (All finalists are guaranteed to take home €233,500 each).
Hady El Asmar, from Lebanon, will lead the way into the final table with a stack of 3,970,000. He's closely followed by Muhyedine Fares, from Senegal/France, with 3,955,000 and German pro Ole Schemion with 3,530,000.
Day 4 chip leader and Team PokerStars Pro Johnny Lodden is still in the competition, as well as Day 3 chip leader Jose Carlos Garcia (known by many as the roommate of poker prodigy Dzmitry Urbanovich, who finished runner-up to Erik Seidel in the €100k Super High Roller earlier this week).
It will be a thrilling final table, that's for sure!
Chip counts: Hady El Asmar, Lebanon, 3,970,000 Muhyedine Fares, Senegal/France, 3,955,000 Ole Schemion, Germany, 3,530,000 Johnny Lodden, Norway, Team PokerStars Pro, 2,250,000 Adrian Mateos, Spain, 1,770,000 Jose Carlos Garcia, Poland, 1,435,000
This looks like it has been a great tournament and at the final table it looks extremely close.....Garcia looked to have blown a massive chip lead a couple of days ago but is still in with a chance but Schemion and Lodden are very good and are definitely not going to be hoping to ladder as I suspect a couple of others could be.
What now? So every roommate of known poker-pros have a chance to get a title from now on? Do their cleaning ladies play cards too? Do they teach the gardener some new tricks whenever he is trimming the bushes outside? Dunno how this side information about Garcia ended up in this article but it's hilarious.
