The top-ranked player, out of the final 6, of the €100,000 PokerStars EPT Super High Roller presented by Monte-Carlo Casino®️ is Adrian Mateos. With €1,385,430 up for grabs, Mateos leads the pack of six players fighting to share the jackpot.

The Super High Roller drew 42 entries (including 12 re-entries), generating a €4,074,840 prize pool. The top six finishers will split the prize money.

Mateos is in a prime position to win his fifth career seven-figure prize. He had already had a €1 million score at EPT Monte Carlo, albeit in the 2015 Main Event.

This year marks the first time the Spaniard has reached paid places in the €100k Super High Roller. With 4,485,000 in chips, Mateos holds a substantial lead over his rivals.

Second in the standings is Norwegian businessman Kent Staahle, a newcomer rubbing shoulders with the high-stakes elite. Staahle has 2,005,000.

Laszlo Bujtas, Mikalai Vaskaboinikau, Mikita Badziakouski, and Marius Gierse will also return for the final day, having secured €285,240 apiece.

Mateos hit his stride on the last two tables, peeling aces twice to score eliminations of Sam Greenwood and PokerStars Ambassador Sam Grafton. He has not relinquished the chip lead since then.

In the end, Mateos himself ended the Day 2 session as he broke the bubble by busting Orpen Kisacikoglu in seventh place.
