EPT9 Monaco Day 3: Seat draw

It's day three of EPT Monaco and 105 players are returning to the Salle des Etoiles with the intention of finding their way to its payouts cage by the end of the week. Some will no doubt do so today: the bubble will burst probably within a couple of levels. Eighty places are paid.

That, of course, means that 25 players will bust without a cash, while about 40 will no doubt remain in the hunt at the end of the day, angling for that €1,224,000 first prize.
