Matthias Eibinger Scoops the Monte Carlo EPT €50k High Roller for €844,080

Austrias Matthias Eibinger emerged victorious from a stacked field to lift the €50,000 Single-Day High Roller title at the PokerStars EPT Monte Carlo festival yesterday, a €844,080 ($939,832) payday inching him over the $6million lifetime tournament cashes milestone…

With 58 entries from 36 players, the prizepool came to €2,813,580, the top eight set to cash, and Daniel Dvoress the unlucky bubble boy, finding himself with one 5k chip less than Seth Davies when Alex Foxen bust the duo.

Foxen was on a tear, disposing of several opponents as the final table progressed, though it took three river cards in a row to send Soyza, Thorel and Heath to the rail.

When the talented Malay pro Wai Leong Chan was toppled in 3rd for an otherwise excellent €393,900 ($438,584) payday, it looked as though the finale might run late into the night, but heads-up was a thankfully quick affair for the players.

A race on only the third hand saw Eibinger hit the flop and hold, the trophy heading back to Austria as Eibinger scored his second biggest career win.
