The bubble has now burst in the European Poker Tour Monte Carlo Grand Final Main Event after Day 3 condensed the field down from 123 to the 41 players now left to fight it out on Day 4. 28 of those that busted out had to go home empty handed as the paying positions started from 98th place, the rest will have at least made the money whilst those still in will be looking to climb the paying positions.
Leading the event after Day 4 is Malte Moennig after a successful stint on the table brought a chip count of 1,150,000. Of the big names that are still in and with a chance at glory in this event are Scott Clements, Steven Silverman, Noah Boeken and PokerStars Team Pros Ville Wahlbeck and David Williams.

A big event like this is always going to bring big name casualties and in this case there were plenty with the likes of Ole Schemion, Mohsin Charania, Niall Farrell, JC Alvarado, Philipp Gruissem, Sam Trickett and PokerStars Team Pros Johnny Lodden and Angel Guillen all busting out of the event on Day 3.
