Yesterday we wrote that that whilst High Roller tournaments are supposedly the preserve of the elite, “known” pro that really didn’t seem to be the case in the EPT12 Prague €10,000 High Roller.
A cursory glance at the final 18 players, who’ve just returned to play the third and final day of this tournament, adds weight to this theory. Whilst the chip leader is definitely a ‘name’ looking through the list there are, perhaps, only another five names that the casual poker fan would recognise.
But, back to the top because Kevin MacPhee is definitely a bona fide poker superstar. EPT champion, EPT runner-up, two-time WSOP bracelet winner, including winning the WSOPE Main Event this year in Berlin – which is, of course, where he won his EPT title as well.
This is how the final 18 stack up, with blinds starting at 12,000/24,000 ante 3,000.
|Vanessa Selbst||USA||Team PokerStars Pro||1,190,000|
|Mikkel Lokkegaard Hansen||Denmark||293,000|
The final 18 are all guaranteed at least €31,480 but play on for a first prize of €595,500.
