Glen Chorny Wins in Monte Carlo
April 18, 2022
The European Poker Tour Grand Final in Monte Carlo has ended, and with it we have a new EPT Champion. Canadian Glen Chorny overcame an impressive international field that included Antonio Esfandiari, Luca Pagano and Isaac 'westmenloAA' Baron, to snag the amazing EPT first prize of $3,198,500. Not a bad haul, considering Chorny won his way into the EPT Grand Final for about $700 through PokerStars' Steps Satellites.

Chorny entered the final table as the chip leader and held that dominant position all the way into heads-up play, at which point he had a nearly insurmountable 10-to-1 chip advantage. Second place finisher Denes Kalo had little chance at overcoming such a lead, and predictably, the heads-up portion of the event only lasted two hands. Kalo was forced to settle for second place money - a paltry $1,866,790.

The final table results for the EPT Grand Final are as follows:

1. Glen Chorny, Canada-$3,198,500
2. Denes Kalo, Hungary-$1,866,790
3. Maxime Villemure, Canada-$1,132,107
4. Isaac Baron, USA-$932,692
5. Michael Martin, USA-$666,606
6. Luca Pagano, Italy-$533,601
7. Valeriy Ilikyan, Russia-$400,590
8. Antonio Esfandiari, USA-$266,004
