The European Poker Tour Season 10 has now concluded with the final two major titles now having been delivered to their respective winners. Antonio Buonanno and Philipp Gruissem will now end the season far richer than when they started it and will now look ahead to the start of Season 11 in Barcelona on August the 15th.
Check out all of the action below.
EPT Monte Carlo Grand Final Main Event Day 6 – Buonanno Wins
The European Poker Tour Monte Carlo Grand Final Main Event has literally just finished and after six days of intense action it was Antonio Buonanno that was crowned the champion. He took home €1,240,000 for his efforts after coming out on top of Jack Salter during heads up.

The day took a long ten hours with several of those being used for an epic heads up battle that swung in both directions. Eventually Buonanno started to swing things in his favour and built up a 3-1 chip advantage before finishing off his opponent not so long after.
The final hand came when Salter re-raised all-in when holding the Kd-7d and was called by the As-4h of his opponent. The board fell as the Jh-9s-2h-Qd-3s and that was that, we had the last big winner on Season 10 of the EPT.
How It Finished
1st) Antonio Buonanno – €1,240,000
2nd) Jack Salter – €765,000

EPT Monte Carlo Grand Final High Roller – Gruissem Wins Another
The other big event finishing up last night was the EPT High Roller in Monte Carlo. It brought in the final table of eight big name players and finished with Philipp Gruissem yet again proving he is one of the best players around when it comes to High Roller events.
The event took just five hours to play out on Day 3 before Gruissem walked away with the title and €993,963. Due to a chop between the pair during heads up, Scott Seiver walked away with far more than he would have with a score of €857,637 for his runners up finish.
The deal was cut precisely to the ICM numbers which meant that literally just the title and SLYDE watch were on offer for the winner. They both even agreed to go all in without looking at their cards for the remainder of the event.
It only took the one hand though as Seiver had the 3h-2h and Gruissem the Qh-Qd and the board fell as the 4h-10s-Kc-Ac-8c.
How It Finished
1st) Philipp Gruissem – €993,963 (d)
2nd) Scott Seiver – €857,637 (d)
3rd) Davidi Kitai – €526,400
4th) John Juanda – €426,800
