EPT Grand Final Super High Roller Day 2 – Mercier Leads

Jason MercierDay 2 of the European Poker Tour Monaco Grand Final was completed last night with there now only seven of the field left remaining as we head into Day 3. There were 30 survivors from Day 1 and they were added to by two more entries buying in on Day 2 of this event.

This brought us a prize pool of €4,851,000 which will be shared amongst just the remaining seven players due to do battle again a little later on today. The winner will be walking away with €1,746,400 whilst the minimum payout will be €218,300.

The player that came into Day 2 with the chip lead was Jason Mercier, and he went on to finish the day in exactly the same position, though he had obviously improved his chip count to 4,165,000. This puts him firmly in control of the event at the current time as he holds double his closest challengers.

There are three of them hovering around the 2 million mark with Vladimir Troyanovski, Sorel Mizzi and Max Altergott holding 2,150,000, 2,140,000 and 2,110,000 respectively.

He failed again however and was joined on the rail by fellow eliminations that included Igor Kurganov, Faraz Jaka, Sam Trickett, Antonio Esfandiari, Daniel Negreanu, Patrik Antonius, Marvin Rettenmaier, Viktor Blom, Fabian Quoss and bubble boy Erik Seidel.

The Final Seven Seating And Chip Counts

Seat 1 – Timothy Adams – 830,000

Seat 2 – Sorel Mizzi          – 2,140,000

Seat 3 – Vladimir Troyanovsky – 2,150,000

Seat 5 – Max Altergott – 2,110,000

Seat 6 – Scott Seiver – 625,000

Seat 7 – Mike Watson – 480,000

Those seven will now return a little later today to play down to a champion, with each player looking to recoup their buy-ins and add as much on top as possible. Can anyone stop Mercier in his pursuit of the top prize below? Come and check back with us tomorrow to find out!
