€10,300 High Roller

Welcome to the 2014 PokerStars.fr EPT Deauville €10,300 High Roller Event!

Casino Barrière de Deauville

The main event may be getting down to the nitty gritty end of the tournament but for the European Poker Tour's high stakes players, it's time for the high-roller event.

Last year Vojtech Ruzicka beat Timothy Reilly heads-up for a first prize worth €313,000 on a final table that also included Martin Jacobson, Bryn Kenney, Steve Silverman and Team PokerStars Pro Jonathan Duhamel.

The high-roller satellite last night drew 116 runners and made 16 seats. EPT winners David Vamplew, Anton Wigg and Dominik Panka were among those whose who qualified for today's tournament. Other players expected to play include Steve O'Dwyer and Toby Lewis, the latter having won Best Online Player at the European Poker Awards last night.

The tournament begins at 1pm local time and we're expecting to play between eight and ten one-hour levels today. It's also a single rebuy tournament so expect a bit more gamble in those early levels from some of the wealthier players!
