Mikita played well and held on for two days in an attempt to win the 100k high stakes tournament from Monte Carlo Casino and PokerStars. The best win was made by Sam Greenwood when he managed to knock everyone else out of the competition after several hours of play.
Hongling Jiang placed ninth during the 2,000-euro game with Dmitry. He was at the final table with 15 big blinds under his belt and unfortunately, could not hold the game after fifteen minutes. He left in the ninth position. Jiang was against Christopher Chaudey who had a king and ten, where Jiang only had a queen ten. Chaudey is a New Zealand born player.
Alexandre Reard finished eighth taking home 20,000 euro. It was down to six big blinds when he was able to go in for a chance, but Raffaele Carnevale had the better position. Reard should be a name you recognize if you watched the World Series of Poker Main Event. He finished sixteenth but also has $1.6 million in winnings during his poker career.
Isabel Baltazar may have helped Reard out of the game; however, she did not last. She was knocked out in the seventh position due to a set of fives held by Karim Abdelmoumene. She will take home a little over 28,500 euro for her play. Chaudey left in sixth, Smain Mamouni in fourth, and that put Karim Abdelmoumene in third place.
