We were treated to some stellar deep-stack play from some of the best young players in the world in the final, but by the time it was all said and done it was time to convert the more than €2 million first-place prize into Canadian dollars.
Glen Chorny took it home as the 22-year-old Timmins, Ontario native came into the final day with the chip lead and played a wise-beyond-his-years, uber-aggressive style of poker that clearly outclassed the field.
With play suspended early on Day 4 we returned at 1 p.m. local time Thursday with 10 players remaining and the need for two more eliminations before play would go in front of the TV cameras. But thanks to the less-than-stellar play of both Stig Top Rasmussen and Henrik Gwinner, it wouldn't be long before we were down to the final eight.
Stig, who proved he was the definition of a Euro-donk on Day 4, catching an ace after shoving with A-10 into exclusive interview with the man should be up here before you know it.
Despite the overpriced food and booze in Monaco the PL.com crew could not have enjoyed Monte Carlo more, and will surely return for more Côte d'Azur poker debauchery next year.
It was a great fourth season of Euro-donkstrikery but you European Poker Tour junkies craving more will have to wait for the beginning of Season 5 in Barcelona penciled in for September.
Until then, we here at PL.com will be everywhere else the best poker players in the world are, because that's what you've come to expect and we always aim to please.
