Cards are now in the air. However, just before, the remaining 22 players were informed of a few structure changes. Levels 28-29 will be reduced from 60 minute blind levels to 50 minutes. Starting at Level 30, blind levels will increase every 40 minutes.
The tournament director informed the field that this was due to the large field size the event attracted.
Austria's Josip Simunic joked that, "Can we just flip right now?"
The third and final day of the EPT Prague High Roller kicks off in about two hours at 12:30 p.m. local time. During the first two days of play, the field was trimmed from its record-break EPT Prague 407 entrants to just 22, with Polish live satellite winner Grzegorz Wyraz holding a substantial chip lead with 3,137,000.
Other players in the top five heading into the day include Ukraine's Glib Kovtunov (1,878,000), Denmark's Tue Ullerup Hansen (1,546,000), Finland's Jussi Nevanlinna (1,417,000) and Lithuania's Matas Cimbolas (1,156,000).
Another player who will be part of the action is the infamously talkative Brit William Kassouf. However, Kassouf will be starting off with one of the shorter stacks today with 336,000 or 14 big blinds with the action set to begin on Level 22 with blinds at 12,000/24,000 and an ante of 4,000. Regardless of how the day turns out for Kassouf and all of the 22 remaining players, each is guaranteed to walk away with a payout of €35,140.
Play will continue until one player claims the final EPT HIgh Roller title along with the top prize of €765,900. Who will it be? Stay tuned at PokerNews to find out as we bring you the action from the first flop to the final river.
