It will be a sprint to the money Tuesday as just two eliminations are needed to burst the bubble and pay the final nine of the returning 11 players in the PokerStars European Poker Tour Paris €50,000 Super High Roller.
A huge prizepool of €3,198,720 awaited the players on Monday, but despite nine levels of play, they couldn’t quite squeak their way into the money, setting the stage for Tuesday’s dramatic finish.
When the players return to the Hyatt Regency Paris Etoile at 12:30 p.m., high-stakes cash game player Jules Dickerson will be the man to catch, coming in with 3,790,000 chips, good for 76 big blinds, while at the bottom of the field, Day 1 chip leader Timothy Adams is currently on the outside looking in with 535,000 chips and 11 big blinds.
Portugal’s Pedro Marques (640,000 – 13 big blinds) and Adams’ Canadian countryman Sam Greenwood (700,000 – 14 big blinds), are the only other two players starting the day under 20 big blinds as they try to claw their way toward at least a €92,800 min-cash.
Once the money is reached, the race toward the largest cut of the prizepool begins, with €959,520 awaiting the winner.

The players will begin the day with Level 18 at blinds of 25,000/50,000 with a 50,000 big blind ante. Levels will remain 60 minutes in length, though once the field is reduced to five or four players, levels could be reduced to 45 minutes, and if a deal is agreed to by players at any point, the clock would be reduced to 30 minutes.
Once the field is thinned to the final table of nine, the players will be redrawn to new seating assignments.
