In this shorter than usual Monday report we can tell you that so far EPT has produced various side event winners, including Nick Petrangelo, who won the opening €10K event. But the first of the headline winners will not be known until later today when both the Estrellas and Super High Roller events come to a close. Or at least we think they will. They were pretty slow finishing last night and both restart this afternoon with one more player at the table than originally planned. A bit like the person who invites themselves to dinner. At least in this case they won't be staying long.
We'll make following live updates from those events easy.
For the Estrellas click here.
For the Super High Roller click here.
Oh, and the Super High Rollers will be shown with cards up on EPT Live starting at 2pm local time (on a one hour delay). For that click here
Then there's the Main Event which has now started (about seven minutes ago at the time of writing). Live updates on that can be found here.
That should be enough to fill your day until about 1am tomorrow morning.
