What a fantastic 2018 Sam Greenwood is having so far. The Canadian poker pro has recently shipped the PokerStars and Monte Carlo Casino EPT €100K Super High Roller, making this his fourth High Roller win in 2018 and his third title of the last four tournaments he has cashed out in.
Just last week, we reported news of Greenwood winning the €6,000 WPT Amsterdam High Roller, where he beat a field of 65 entries to take home €125,785 for first place. Earlier in April, he also won the partypoker LIVE MILLIONS Barcelona €50k Super High Roller, beating 57 entries to take home his career best win of €1 million.
However, he has gone on to beat that career-best live cash, by winning the EPT (European Poker Tour) Monte Carlo €100k Super High Roller, for a new best cash of €1,520,000 ($1,853,387). Here, he topped a total of 46 entries (30 entries and 16 re-entries) that included some of the best poker pros from around the world.
The 3-day event saw Christoph Vogelsang holding the chip lead coming into the final 6 players. Greenwood had the second highest chip stack at the time, but he soon overtook Vogelsang and everyone else on the table. The final table also included top pros like Ole Schemion, Justin Bonomo and Isaac Haxton.
Greenwood reached heads-up with a lead over Vogelsang, but the tides turned and Vogelsang had a 4:1 chip lead at one stage. The intense heads up battle went on for over three hours between these two veterans but eventually, Greenwood’s KJ prevailed over his opponent’s A5. Greenwood took home the title, and a huge share of that €4,462,920 prize pool.

The €1,100 buy-in EPT National Event began on 25th April and 226 players were eventually paid out, with a minimum cash prize of €900.
