EPT9 Monaco, Day 1B: Welcome to more Grand Final action

Day 1B of the PokerStars and Monte-Carlo® Casino EPT Grand Final has just started with players including Daniel Negreanu, Galen Hall, Marc-Andre Ladouceur, Xuan Liu, Luca Pagano, Kevin MacPhee, Fatima Moreira de Melo, Vicky Coren, Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier, Jason Wheeler, Liv Boeree, Rupert Elder, ToddTerry and EPT London High Roller champ Talal Shakerchi. We're up to 311 entrants on the day, and that number is still climbing. You can catch up with what happened yesterday by clicking here.


Ladies and gentlemen, your dealers for the day.

We've also heard that we're going to be streaming a chunky Open-Face Chinese cash game for the first time ever. Big bad Barry Greenstein will be stepping into the booth for that one so be sure to fire up a window for EPT Live when it starts at 4pm (CET) this afternoon.

Stay with us at the PokerStars Blog for live updates, news, views and interviews (even if some of them are just with us...).
