€10,600 Main Event

Welcome to Day 1b of the 2014 PokerStars and Monte-Carlo® Casino EPT Grand Final!

Monte Carlo Bay

We're back for the final start day of the last main event of Season 10 of the European Poker Tour to see who will become the 99th EPT winner.

Yesterday 214 players stumped up €10,000 to take part with Samir Hadad finishing on top with 178,100. Today the field is expected to be even bigger as more players flock to Monte Carlo in the hopes of pursuing a dream. Among those thought to be playing today will be Daniel Colman, who last night won the €100,000 Super High Roller event, runners-up Daniel Cates and Igor Kurganov are also likely to be involved.

So what does the buy-in get you exactly? You'll receive 30,000 chips with the aim of getting through eight 75-minute levels (with a 75-minute dinner break after level 6). Manage that and you'll be through to Day 2 alongside the 106 qualifier who made it past Day 1a.

Play will begin at 12pm. This is the big one, a blue ribbon event and one of the most important tournaments of the poker calendar.

Good luck all.
