A number of leading poker professionals have been confirmed as entrants in the European Poker Tour Grand Final €100,000 Super High Roller Event that will be held in Monte Carlo on May 13th.
Pokerstars announced yesterday that over thirty players are locked-in to play the event and this number is expected to grow even higher.
The leading online poker room has offering a number of incentives for players to take part in the tournament.
“Players who come out and support our Super High Roller events enjoy a little tangible rakeback and VIP treatment for their loyalty as well,” Pokerstars Global VIP Host Garry Gates said.
“Free rooms, chauffeured limousine rides, room credit for food and drinks and complimentary taxi service are offered at some stops, and here in Monaco we have a very unique opportunity.
“Upon landing in Nice, France, our VIPs have a chartered helicopter waiting for them, which takes them on a ride above the picturesque shores of the Mediterranean before touching down in the Principality of Monaco.”
Leading players that have taken up this incredible opportunity include: 2013 WSOP APAC Main Event champion Daniel Negreanu, Big One For One Drop winner Antonio Esfandiari, the winningest female tournament poker player in history Vanessa Selbst and poker legend Erik Seidel.
The inaugural European Poker Tour Grand Final Super High Roller tournament was won by Justin Bonomo who outlasted a final table that included Tobias Reinkemeier, Bertrand Grospellier, Patrik Antonius, Masaaki Kagawa and Negreanu.
European Poker Tour President Edgar Stuchly said he was delighted at the response to the Super High Roller Tournament.
“Monaco really is the spiritual home of high-stakes gaming, and the response we’ve had to the High Roller events has been fantastic so far,” Stuchly told Poker News.
