Bubble Already Popped At EPT Grand Final
April 27, 2022
The surviving players of the 2010 PokerStars European Poker Tour Monte Carlo Grand Final have now each played two full days of tournament poker and already each is in the money and part of less than one-seventh of the total starting field.

Once the field gets that small, it’s natural for many players to begin picturing what it would be like to win the one big prize, which at this event is worth over $2.2 million US (€1,700,000), but to do so these players still have quite a few established pros they’ll need to get through first. 

Some of the top players still in the hunt at the PokerStars EPT Grand Final include Victoria Coren, Mel Judah, Chris Moneymaker, Lex Veldhuis, Davidi Kitai and Nick Schulman, who currently leads them all with over 740,000 in tournament chips.

Of the 413 players that began Day 2, by far the majority were sent home before the money bubble popped at 128- despite it popping so quickly.  Among the list of 297 Day 2 eliminated players sit such recognizable names as Isaac Baron, Men Nguyen, Erica Schoenberg, Ross Boatman, Allan Baekke, Joe Serock, Amnon Filippi, Greg Raymer,  Isabelle Mercier and Joe Cada.
