EPT Super-High-Roller tops off at 45 entries

38 players entered the €100,000 Super-High-Roller tournament at the EPT Grand Final in Monte Carlo, and as Day 2 begins a total of 45 entries were sold in the re-entry format. The seven players who decided a single €100,000 bullet was not enough were Gus Hansen, Jason Mercier, Justin Bonomo, Isaac Haxton, Bill Perkins, and Dieter Albrecht (who according to PokerNews.com apparently busted and then went on to win enough playing craps to re-enter the tournament!) leaving Leon Tsoukernik as the only player to bust twice on Day 1 and not be playing on Day 2.

Yesterday we had 34 names on the entrant-list, but with late registration four other players threw their hat in the ring as well: Tony G, Daniel Negreanu, Bill Perkins, and Martin Kabrhel. The 45 total entries will see the prize-pool end somewhere in the €4.5 million range.

Here is a look at the complete entrant’s list for the tournament:

* Dan Shak

And here is a look at what the remaining players are battling for as the EPT has officially released the prize-pool and payout figures for the event:

* 1st place: €1,640,000

* 3rd place: €621,000

* 4th place: €443,000

The 45 entries makes the EPT Super-High-Roller the largest $100k+ buy-in poker tournament in 2012, and the 38 entrants ties the number that entered the 2011 PCA Super-High-Roller which took place before Black Friday.
