Top POY Contenders To Battle At EPT High Roller Final Table
April 30, 2022
The two current leaders in the CardPlayer Player of the Year race, Sorel Mizzi and Tom Marchese, today both made the same major High Roller final table, giving both men yet another reason to fight for tomorrow's posted €956,000 first prize.

Unlike other High Roller events- that often get so few players they are little more than high priced sit-n-gos- this event at the PokerStars European Poker Tour Monte Carlo stop attracted 113 players, despite the hefty €25,000 buy-in, creating a total prize pool of €2,825,000, as well as a field full of sharks to go after it.

Some of the well known players who competed in this year’s EPT Monte Carlo High Roller included PokerRoad’s Barry Greenstein, Daniel Negreanu, Tony G, Liv Boeree, John Juanda, Michael Binger, Phil Laak, Vanessa Rousso- last year’s defending champ- and Gus Hansen, who oddly had enough chips to make it into today’s Day 2, but didn’t bother showing up to use them.

Along with Mizzi and Marchese, some of the other players still with chips in the EPT Monte Carlo High Roller include Olivier Busquet, Allen Bari and Lebanon’s Dori Yacoub, whose good friend and countryman, Nicolas Chouity, just took down the EPT Monte Carlo main event for over $2.2 Million.  As was Chouity yesterday, Yacoub is the final table chip leader, with a stack worth nearly 1,200,000

The chip counts heading into tomorrow’s PokerStars EPT Monte Carlo High Roller final table are as follows:

Dori Yacoub- 1,199,000

Tom Marchese- 909,000

Allen Bari- 835,000

Tobias Reinkemeier- 826,000

Sorel Mizzi- 770,000

Olivier Busquet- 666,000

Paul Berende - 327,000

Michael Friedrich - 112,000
