EPT9 Grand Final: Faraz Jaka in €99,000 buy-in disaster

Faraz Jaka must have had at least a couple of heart palpitations this afternoon when he looked down at his ticket into the €100,000 Super High Roller and found instead a seat allocation into the €1,100 Monaco Cup. Sure, the Monaco Cup has a nice overlay (which has levelled at around €100,000 added value), but even so you'd still be disappointed to insta-lose €99,000.

PokerStars.tv's Sarah Grant also asked Jaka about whether €100,000 buy-ins suck money out of the poker economy. As per usual, the man who can't be stopped by a tin of tuna was happy to give his thoughts.
