EPT Grand Final: PokerStrategy.com Coach Sergio Castelluccio at the Final Table

The PokerStars and Monte-Carlo Casino EPT Grand Final is nearing its conclusion, and just an 8-handed final table remains. One of the remaining players is PokerStrategy.com coach Sergio Castelluccio.

Sergio Castelluccio
The PokerStars EPT Grand Final in Monaco began earlier this week with an impressive 665 players, but now just 8 of them remain. All 8 will receive a 6-figure sum for making it this far, but just 1 will become the EPT Grand Final champion and receive the €1,500,000 grand prize.

Who made the final table?

Bernard Guigon (4,900,000 chips) - Frenchman Bernard Guinon enters the final table in first place. His career tournament earnings are over $100,000, with his best result coming from a 4th-place finish in a WSOPE event in 2011.

Rodrigo Caprioli (2,945,000 chips) - Brazilian Rodrigo Caprioli has minimal live experience, but this isn't his first deep EPT run - he finished in 16th place at the 2009 EPT London.

Lucille Cailly (2,865,000 chips) - French Lucille Cailly has already made EPT history with her finish - she's the first woman to reach the final table of an EPT Grand Final. Her lifetime live tournament earnings are over $100,000, and this is her 3rd EPT cash.

Daniel Gomez (2,665,000 chips) - Spanish Daniel Gomez has very few tournament results outside of Spain, but he must be glad to have travelled to Monaco for this one. This is his first EPT cash, and it will be his largest career cash.

Mohsin Charania (2,215,000 chips) - An American online pro with arguably the most overall experience at this table, Mohsin Charania has $500,000 in live earnings in addition to over $3.5 million in online earnings playing as 'sms9231' and 'chicagocards1'.

Michael Dietrich (1,550,000 chips) - Canadian Michael Dietrich has several small live cashes in his career, but this is by far the biggest one - even an 8th place finish will more than double his career live earnings. Like Charania, however, Dietrich's online results are amazing - he has over $4 million in earnings playing as 'pipedream17' and 'dartz222'.

Clayton Mozdzen (1,430,000 chips) - Another Canadian, Mozdzen has accrued over $280,000 in live earnings including a 14th place finish at the EPT Madrid last month. Mozdzen has over $1 million in online earnings playing as 'slammedfire' at PokerStars.

Sergio Castelluccio (1,410,000 chips) 
- Italian PokerStrategy.com coach Sergio 'geniodelletartarughe' Castelluccio will enter the final table in last place with 1,410,000 chips. At the current 40,000/80,000/10,000 blind level, that's a bit over 17 big blinds. Although he has some work to do, one double up can put Sergio back in the thick of things. A top 6 finish will be enough for the largest cash of his career. Good luck Sergio!
The final table of the EPT Grand Final begins on Monday at 13:30 CET with a one-hour delayed live stream beginning on PokerStars.tv at 14:30 CET.
