Nearly half the field may have been thinned on Sunday, but with registration and reentry still available until the start of the play on Day 2 Monday, the field of 33 in the PokerStars European Poker Tour Paris €50,000 Super High Roller is certain to grow significantly.
Anybody wishing to pony up €50,000 to join the previous 58 entries before play begins at 12:30 p.m. local time will receive 250,000 chips (41 big blinds) to take their shot at chasing down a huge seven-figure first prize, which along with the rest of the payouts will be announced once registration is closed. Thus far, €2,728,320 has already been collected in the prizepool.
The chip leader entering the day is two-time EPT Super High Roller title-holder Timothy Adams. The Canadian brings 1,184,000 chips into play Monday. He, along with just four other players will bring more than 100 big blinds to their table from Day 1. Former PCA champion Dimitar Danchev comes in second in chips (1,112,000), while Nikita Kuznetsov also brings over a million to the table (1,017,000).
