We recently received a press release from EPT Media Coordinator Mad Harper, and we thought we'd pass that on to you. Here's what she had to say on the EPT10 Vienna High Roller:
"At least 111 players entered the EPT10 Vienna €10,300 High Roller to compete in the most expensive tournament of the festival. Jason Lavallee and Ivan Soshnikov have already won high rollers in season 10 (London and Prague, respectively) and they are in the starting line-up here in the Hofburg Palace as well as the man who has already conquered one high roller event this week, Team PokerStars Pro Eugene Katchalov, winner of the Eureka Poker Tour Vienna High Roller. The red spade is also represented by Jonathan Dumahel, Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier, Maxim Lykov, Theo Jorgensen and PokerStars Team Online's Marc-Andre Ladouceur.
"The starting line-up also includes the PokerStars.fr-sponsored player and France Poker Series leaderboard winner Miroslav Alilovic, who busted the Main Event in 32nd place and then immediately jumped in the High Roller.
"It is hard to select just a few notable names out of the 111 players registered so far but, with regard to EPT champions, we also have David Vamplew, Steve O'Dwyer, Anton Wigg, Jannick Wrang, Davidi Kitai, Daniel Pidun, Robin Ylitalo, Toby Lewis and Sotirios Koutoupas."
