The MonteCarlo Casino has already seen a few tales of short-stack recovery this week, but Winter’s was probably the most impressive as he outlasted notables such as Charlie Carrel, Alex Foxen and Ike Haxton at the final table.

With 83 players chasing the 11 paid spots for a share of the €1,992,830 prizepool, it was a frantic day of action among the high roller crew, with some lesser-known players running deep.

Malaysia’s Wai Leong Chan deserves more notice, the Triton Poker regular taking the first of the final table payouts, and Iran’s Ali Reza Fatehi also showing up in the final eight.

Japan’s Kazuhiko Yotsushika clearly loves the EPT high roller events, adding a 3rd spot worth €389,600 ($435,573) to his $25k victory at last year’s Barcelona stop, and gaining praise from Tim Adams in the process: “Yotsushika was tough. I thought he played pretty good. He was tough to read as well."

It was Adams and Winter, however, who would battle it out for the title yesterday, and despite clawing back a chunk of the 20:1 chip deficit, Winter couldn’t quite turn things around fully, Timothy Adams finally catching him out and grabbing the title.
