Down To Three Table At EPT Grand Final
April 28, 2022
Only 24 players remain at the PokerStars €10,600 buy-in, European Poker Tour Monte Carlo Grand Final, after another breakneck speed type day, that saw the elimination of 92 players, including many beloved pros from the US and around the globe.

The man most oft credited for starting the poker boom, WSOP Main Event champion Chris Moneymaker, was just one of those eliminations today, when he went out in 69th place and was joined on the rail by Mel Judah (56th), Alex Gomes (33rd), Lex Veldhuis (31st), Kevin MacPhee (84th) and Vicky Coren, who almost made it through before going out right towards the end of play in 26th place, for a €40,000 "min" cash (about $53,000 USD).

It was certainly a disappointing day for many in the poker community, however there are still 24 proud players with chips yet carrying the flags for their countries- and their sponsors- when this event continues again tomorrow.  Some of the notable pros still in the field include Andrew Chen, Matt Perrins, Ramzi Jelassi and Nick Schulman, who dropped below average during the quick day but is still well in contention with about 580,000 in tournament chips.
