At 12:30 p.m. local time, the final table of the 2015 PokerStars and Monte-Carlo® Casino European Poker Tour Grand Final €100,000 Super High Roller will commence. Cards-up coverage will be on a one-hour delay, starting at 1:30 p.m. local time, and PokerNews.com won't spoil anything for you. We will be providing hand-for-hand coverage, though.
The chip leader going in is Italy's Dario Sammartino, who won a huge pot of Ole Schemion late last night as the money bubble neared. It was a somewhat controversial hand, but in the end all the chips went his way and Schemion was left crippled, only to bust to Erik Seidel two hands later.
Eight players remain with Scott Seiver as the short stack. Seiver will start with 12 big blinds, while Polish superstar Dzmitry Urbanovich has 14 big blinds to start with.
The remaining eight players are guaranteed €261,800, with €2,015,000 up top, and the first level to be played is Level 17 (20,000/40,000, with a 5,000 ante). Stay tuned for the coverage and we'll see who comes out on top.
