EPT Monte Carlo High Roller Day 2 Kitai Leading Final Table

Day 2 of the European Poker Tour Monte Carlo High Roller started with 104 players looking to establish a place in the money first and foremost and then on the final table. The top 31 players went home with some money for their efforts but the majority of the field went home empty handed.
