We started with 37 on day 2, we finished with eight. All are in the money, guaranteed at least €60,000, and looking to win big. Very big. The last player standing for the final table will take home €720,000, and Team PokerStars Pro Vanessa Rousso is leading the way.
She was down to her last 80,000 earlier on in the day but went on the sort of run that poker players dream of, taking key huge pots as she bludgeoned her way to the summit. Spare a thought for the bubble boy Anthony Gueitti who goes home with nothing for his ninth place.
The players will return tomorrow to begin their shootout at high noon local time (CET). We’ll be covering it every step of the way, both here and on our Twitter page.
Here are the overnight chip counts:
Vanessa Rousso, Team PokerStars Pro, 1,250,000
Tony G, 875,000
Randy Dorfman, 487,500
David Eldar, 385,500
