€25,000 High Roller

One More Big Bullet

2011 champion Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier

All the superstars have one last bullet to shoot for glory and that's in the PokerStars and Monte-Carlo® Casino EPT Grand Final €25,000 High Roller. The event is set to be a massive one.

There were 12 seats alone given away to the event in a satellite last night and numbers are expected to be very high. Winning their way into the event last night were David Deutsch, Vincent van der Fluit, Martin Schleich, Peter Akery, Sorel Mizzi, Dori Yacoub, Ivan Kudriavtcev, Igor Kurganov, Andries Swart, Georgios Karakousis, Ongjen Sekularac and JC Alvarado. Viacheslav Igin placed 13th and won €17,204, so he could very well buy-in as well.

Last year, Team PokerStars Pro Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier won the title and he'll be back to defend it this year. This event has only be run at the EPT Grand Final since Season 5. In previous years, Tobias Reinkemeier and Vanessa Rousso earned the winner's crown.

In comparison, the 2012 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure $25,000 High Roller had 141 entrants earlier this year. Leonid Bilokur won that event for over $1.13 million after beating Jonathan Duhamel heads up.

The cards are scheduled to be in the air at 1:00 PM local time. PokerNews will be live on hand for all of the coverage, so stay tuned for the action.
