Phil Ivey Has Already Blown Through 200k EurosPublished on May 13th, 2013 11:33 pm EST
The Super High Roller event, which has a buy-in of 100k EUR, got underway at the Monte-Carlo Casino European Poker Tour Grand Final earlier today.
The event caters to the players in the poker world with the deepest pockets or the most generous staking deals. Registration for the event remains open until partway through Day 2, and you are allowed to keep re-buying if you get knocked out, up until registration for the event officially closes.
Phil Ivey, for instance, was knocked out early in Day 1 and chose to buy in again for another 100k EUR. Unfortunately for Ivey and his fans, he was knocked out yet again. The good news? He might be back for Day 2, as he will be allowed to buy in as registration is still open.
Dan Smith, Justin Bonomo (the winner of last year's event) and Philipp Gruissem are some of the other players who have already burned through 100k EUR.
29 players are currently left in the EPT Grand Final Super High Roller heading into Day 2 on Tuesday. Including all of the rebuys that have taken place so far, there have been a total of 48 entries.
