casino monte carloAlready there are some interesting names being added to the €100,000 Super High Roller due to take place in this month’s massive PokerStars and Monte Carlo Casino European Poker Tour Grand Final.

From the 6th to 15th of May, there are plenty of events for players to sink their buy-ins into with the main event making the headlines, but it looks like the Super High Rollers are taking up of news space themselves. There is a €25,000 High Roller and a Super High Roller that will cost a huge €100,000 to get involved.

On the 13th of May, the Super High Roller will be one of the largest high roller events to have hit the beaches of Europe, and it is set to attract some of the biggest names in poker all in with a shout for what is guaranteed to be a massive prize pool, with a million Euro first place prize almost certainly up for grabs. All the tournament needs is 20 entrants to bring the prize pool naturally close to €2 million, guaranteeing at least a €400,000 first place prize, and there have already been 30 confirmed entries.

Going by the figures from the previous year’s version of this event, there were 38 entrants creating a massive prize pool of €4,432,500 with 7 re-buys. It was Justin Bonomo who would take down the big win in the €98,500 No Limit Hold’em 8-Max Super High Roller Rebuy in the Monte-Carlo casino EPT Grand final event and pocket a grand total of €1,640,000 for his win. This year’s €100,000 Super High roller is expected to roll in an even bigger number with 30 entrants already pre-registered and more expected to come along for the fun.

Here is a list of some of the entrants who have already put up their cash. Philipp Gruissem is a danger man with a reputation for cashing in high roller events and Daniel Negreanu who recently won his fifth WSOP, also came sixth in this event last year around cashing €310,000. Tobias Reinkemeier is also in the list, and came second in last year’s event, as well as Bertrand ‘ElkY’ Grospellier has confirmed his entry after coming third in this event last year.

The structure of the EPT Super High Roller events usually mean that the blinds will start at level eight, because the buy-in is set at €100,000. This means players will start deepstacked with 500/1000 blinds and players will have 250 big blinds (250,000 chips) to begin their campaign for what should be guaranteed as a million Euro first place prize. The antes will immediately be taken as 100 per hand with blind levels moving up at a pace of 60 minutes per level.
