As the 2023 PokerStars European Poker Tour Paris festival is winding down, there is still time for one final high-stakes tournament on the schedule with the €25,000 No-Limit Hold'em III slated to begin at 7 p.m. local time. The turnouts have exceeded expectations thus far and this tournament surely won't disappoint.
There have been many high-stakes events throughout the last two weeks and Chris Brewer has had the most success thus far. Brewer, who many joke is often on the wrong side of a cold deck, has captured two titles so far at EPT Paris including the €50,000 EPT Super High Roller. The American took home a seven-figure payout in USD for his win in that tournament and also won a single-day €25,000 event for over €350,000.
While the €10,000 EPT High Roller is currently taking place with many notables still in the field, this tournament will surely attract some of the best players in the game who are looking for one last crack at a big score before their trip comes to a close. Steve O'Dwyer, Mike Watson, Sam Greenwood, Ben Heath, and Seth Davies are among those expected to contest Brewer for a shot at the title.
This event will take place over the course of two days with just 10 levels being played this evening. The action is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. local time with registration open throughout the evening. The levels will be 30 minutes in length with two 15-minute breaks during the night.
This will be a single reentry event with late registration staying open until the start of Day 2 tomorrow at 12 noon. A starting stack will be worth 100,000 chips with the blinds starting at 500/1,000 and a 1,000 big blind ante. The first eight levels will actually consist of four double levels to allow for more play in the early going.
The PokerNews live reporting team will be on the tournament floor to bring you live updates throughout the evening so be sure to stay tuned in.
