A total of 295 players (+98 re-entries) entered the High Roller to make it the by far richest HR-event in European Poker Tour history! There are 21 survivors after two days of play and Amir Barer, winner of the 2014 Aussie Millions Main Event, will lead the way into Day 3 with 1.953 million in chips.
Another day is in the books at the 2014 PokerStars and Monte-Carlo® Casino European Poker Tour Grand Final Main Event. After six 75-minute levels of play in Day 2, Russia's Vladimir Troyanovskiy bagged up the largest stack (450,500) amongst the 123 remaining players. Troyanovskiy is a regular in the Super High Roller and High Roller tournaments on the European Poker Tour and, believe it or not, he played final tables in both of them at the 2013 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure.
Day 1A and 1B of the PokerStars and Monte-Carlo®Casino EPT Grand Final Main Event have been played over the weekend. German player Hendrik Latz will lead the remaining 358 players into Day 2 with 191,600 in chips.
Vanessa Selbst made history last night when she won the 2013 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure $25k High Roller, earning $1,424,420. The 28-year-old Team PokerStars Pro now has more than $6 million to her name, which means that she's the biggest female winner in tournament poker history (about $1.1 more than former number 1: Kathy Libert).
