EPT Monaco €100,000 Super High Roller

A guy who plays in our local cardroom claims he will be playing the super high roller (100K euros buyin) at EPT Monaco in April. He says he has already paid the entrance fee.

Now I can see there are 20 runners and 18 are named. Is there any way I can see the other two to establish if he has indeed entered?

Yes I have seen the list of 18. It was the other 2 I was interested in to see if the local player has really bought in. If Timex is another then that only leaves one. Any idea how I can find out who this is? Thanks.

Not sure about this, but if he already payed... shouldnt he be listed in the tournament lobby in PStars? (Events>EPT>Qualifiers tab)

I can see only 3 players there atm, Kidpoker (Canada), montecarlo13 (Monaco), philbort (United Kingdom)

Govert is such a boss!

Philip "philbort" Gruissem has also bought himself in via the Pokerstars client, so he and Govert could be the two missing guys you are looking for

Re: EPT Monaco High Roller

Was just about to say, philbort isn't mentioned on that list so whoever the guy from your local card room is, he's likely lying. At least about having already paid the entry fee.

Cool list, sick tourney this is going to be. This list comes from the PokerStars weekly round-up from April 19‏, weird that they spell Viktor's name wrong.

Re: EPT Monaco High Roller

Hi All,

***NOTE - Important announcement for the Super High Roller!

We have extended the reload period through to the start of Day 2! So you can enter for the first 4 levels, and re-enter for the first 8 levels. The start of Level 9 (1K - 3K - 6K - 250,000 stack) on Day 2 will close the reload period.

Cheers,

Neil

Overheard Masa Kagawa and Bill Perkins chatting recently. Said they couldn't wait to get another shot at Tom Dwan's dead money.
