The last event of the the2014 PokerStars and Monte-Carlo®Casino EPT Grand Final at the Salles des Etoiles room at Le Sporting is starting shortly. The €25,000 High Roller begins in less than an hour as Season 10 of the European Poker Tour draws to a close.

There was a big turnout for the Super High Roller earlier this week, so we are expecting a large field for this event too. With a lot of the big names knocked out of the Main Event there is sure to be a strong showing from the Team PokerStars Pros and other big names in the world of poker including Phil Ivey.

Last year there were a total of 157 entries (including re-entries) but it wouldn’t be a surprise if this year topped that number. Steven Silverman was last year’s winner taking home €775,400. He is still competing in the Main Event so he won’t be joining us for the start of the action.

This is a single re-entry event, so if the first bullet doesn't find the target the players will have a chance to re-load. Entry and re-entry is open until the start of play on Day 2.

Players begins with a starting stack of 50,000 and level one kicks off with blinds and antes at 100/200/25. There are ten 60 minute levels of play scheduled for Day 1 with a dinner break after level 6.
