European Poker Tour - Monte CarloThe final table of the EPT Grand Final 25k EUR High Roller has been now been set after the elimination of Phil Ivey in ninth place.

Here are the chip counts heading into the final day of play in the tournament:

Justin Bonomo - 2,202,000
Igor Kurganov - 1,288,000
Phillipp Gruissem - 990,000
Daniel Negreanu - 660,000
Noah Schwartz - 522,000
Nathan Schoo - 387,000
Artem Litvinov - 331,000
Max Lykov - 271,000

Justin "Zeejustin" Bonomo has been scorching hot as of late (he took down the Super High Roller event at the EPT Grand Final for over $2.1 million USD), and his run-good spilled over into this event and ended up bouncing Phil Ivey from the tournament in 9th place.

In the final hand of play on Monday, Phil Ivey and Bonomo got their stacks into the middle of the table with the board reading Kd-7s-5s-3d. The two players turned over:

Ivey - Kd-Kc
Bonomo - Ks-Qs

Ivey had flopped top set, but Bonomo turned the flush draw.

The river brought the Jack of spades, giving Bonomo the flush and eliminating Ivey from the tournament in 9th place. Ivey walked away with a little over 73k EUR.

Here is what Negreanu had to say after Ivey busted in 9th:

"The way Ivey played all day I was certain the only way he'd bust would be an awful beat. He played awesome all day IMO #notsurprising"


All eight of the remaining players in this event will take home a minimum of 100k EUR. The eventual winner will walk away with 1,080,000 EUR, while the runner-up will take home 598,600 EUR.

Note: With a win or second place finish in this event, Daniel Negreanu will move past Phil Ivey to take the #2 spot on the all-time money list.
