2015 EPT Grand Final Day 4: France Leads Day 1b
Day 4 of the 2015 PokerStars and Monte-Carlo Casino European Poker Tour (EPT) Grand Final was a busy affair. In addition to Day 1b of the €10,600 Main Event, the one-day €50,000 Super High Roller started and finished while the France Poker Series (FPS) Monaco Main Event crowned a champion.
FPS Monaco Main Event
The feature event was the final table of the FPS Monaco Main Event. With 993 total entries, the prize pool for the event was €963,210. The eventual winner, Germany's Sebastian Supper, collected €177,000 for his win. The full final-table results are below.
Single-Day €50,000 Super High Roller
One of the more interesting and high profile events on the Grand Final calender this year was the Single-Day €50,000 Super High Roller. 66 people jumped in to play, generating a prize pool of €3,201,660 to be split between nine players. Scott Seiver took away his second cash in a Super High Roller in as many days, finishing ninth, after taking eighth in the €100,000 on Day 3. Canada's Mike Watson made a deep run, but couldn't quite finish it off as he finished second to Italian Mustapha Kanit. All the payouts for the event are below.
€10,600 Main Event: Day 1b
The marquee event at any EPT is always the Main Event. With Day 1a already in the books, Day 1b was a second chance for players to get into the tournament. France stole the show on day 1b, bagging the top three stacks at the end of the night. Romain Paon (161,900), Eric Sfez (148,600), and Samy Salah (144,500) sit atop the day's leaderboard.
Max Greenwood is Canada's top finisher on Day 1b, bagging 95,000 chips and Thomas Popov was close behind with 90,000. Other Canadians who made it through the day with smaller stacks included Shyam Srinivasan (57,700), Ryan McEathron (45,300), and Ami Barer (42,600).
Action on Day 2 picks up at 12:30 CET Monday (live at EPT Live), as the 186 qualifiers from Day 1b meet the 113 who made it through Day 1a along with late registrants.
