Fatehi leads for final table of EPT12 Grand Final €100K Super High Roller

Accompanied by some of the world's best poker players, Iranian Ali Reza Faheri certainly won't have an easy debut on tomorrow's final table of the €100k Super High Roller at the PokerStars and Monte-Carlo®Casino EPT12 Grand Final. However, he's been doing very well in this star-studded tournament so far. He has a substantial chip lead coming to the finale. With 5,180,000, he has nearly twice as many chips as his nearest rival.

The Teheran-born player will celebrate his 39th birthday next week and is seeking to give himself a sweet present up front as there's €1,775,000 waiting for the winner.

While Fatehi doesn't appear to have any live tournament cashes to his name so far, the other seven finalists have amassed nearly $38 million combined. Second in chips is Stephen Chidwick who is also the only finalist who had to re-enter. Argentinian star Ivan Luca is now guaranteed to overtake #1 spot on his nation's all-time money list.

All eight finalists are guaranteed €236,750 and tomorrow will see the first two millionaires crowned at this festival; second prize is also a seven-figure sum, of €1,284,300.

German superstar Ole Schemion has been a powerhouse at EPTs over the last few years - and was Player of the Year in Season 10 - but remarkably it's nearly two years since his last outright victory in a live event. Igor Kurganov is making his third final table in a row here in the Grand Final €100k Super High Roller; he was third and fifth previously.

Canada's Sam Greenwood would set a new personal best result with a fourth place tomorrow, as his biggest payday to date came in December back at EPT12 Prague €50k Super High Roller where he took €583,500 for a runner-up finish. Mustapha Kanit can win his fourth EPT (Super) High Roller title in twelve months; he started his collection here in Monaco with a €50k Single-Day Super High Roller triumph. Paul Newey is the shortest stack at the final table but is set to pick up his third EPT Super High Roller cash in Season 12.

EPT4 Dortmund champion Mike McDonald was eliminated by Ole Schemion on the bubble while the defending champion Erik Seidel soft-bubbled after busting to Igor Kurganov in tenth place.
