Chouity Claims Monte Carlo Crown
April 30, 2022
Nicolas Chouity, a Lebanese player who won his way into the event through a $22 online rebuy satellite, just took down the PokerStars European Poker Tour Monte Carlo Grand Final- arguably the EPT’s most prestigious event of the season.

Chouity, only the second player from Lebanon to ever win an EPT event, went wire-to-wire at the Monte Carlo final table, entering with a huge chip lead and then personally eliminating all but one of his seven final opponents, on route to his impressive victory.

Prior to this event, Chouity’s best finish was a 50th place cash at last year’s EPT Grand Final, worth around $40,000.  This year Chouity bested that total by quite a bit, earning €1,700,000 (or about $2.26 Million USD), by outlasting a total starting field of 848 players.

The final table finish positions for the 2010 PokerStars EPT Monte Carlo Grand Final were as follows:

1st.  Nicolas Chouity- €1,700,000

2nd.  Josef Klinger- €1,000,000

3rd.  Dominykas Karmazinas- €700,000

4th.  Herve Costa- €500,000

5th.  Andrew Chen- €400,000

6th.  Aleh Plauski- €300,000

7th. Roger Hairabedian- €200,000

8th.  Mesbah Guerfi- €140,000

The EPT Monte Carlo is the final stop of EPT Season 6.  For more information on this event, this season, or on the EPT Monte Carlo High Rollers event still in progress visit, or check out the PokerStars blog.
