Mercier, Mizzi, Seiver At EPT €100k Monte-Carlo Final Table

Mercier, Mizzi, Seiver At EPT €100k Monte-Carlo Final TableThe European Poker Tour €100,000 Super High Roller attracted a total of 50 entries to create a prize pool worth €4,851,000. Now with 2 days in the bag just seven players remain to feature yet one more star-studded final table at the Monte Carlo Bay Hotel.
Leading the pack, as he has done since day 2, is Jason Mercier (4.165m) with around a third the chips in play, followed by Russia’s Vladimir Troyanovsky (2.15m), Canada’s Sorel Mizzi (2.15m) and Germany’s Max Altergott (2.11m). The next wave of contenders include US pros Timothy Adams (830k) and Scott Seiver (625k), with Canada’s Mike Watson (480k) bringing up the rear.
All the finalists minds will now be focused squarely on the €1,746,400 top prize and the title which accompanies it, although they will surely be grateful to have at least guaranteed themselves a minimum of €218,300 for their hard fought efforts. Some of their gratitude will also be directed towards Jason Mercier, who eliminated players in 11th, 10th, 9th and 8th places to set the final table.
One of Mercier’s vicims was Phil Ivey in 10th, who had already spent €300,000 in the event, and busted after being dealt A-J and 4-betting all-in against Mercier’s A-Q. Other notable names falling short of a cash prize included the likes of Mike McDonald,  Bertrand Grospellier, Steve Silverman, John Juanda, Tom Marchese, Sergii Baranov, Jonathan Duhamel and Joseph Cheong.
Chip leader Jason Mercier has already won $8,228,390 in career live earnings,  $117,432 of which has come this year. The 36 year old Florida pro will now be hoping to go all the way and take down the Super High Roller first place prize, thus helping him reach his goal of earning at least $1 million in tournament prizes for 2013.
The final table action is set to get underway today at 2:00 PM CET, and will be streamed on a one-hour delay via EPTlive.
