Welcome to the blonde Live Update service fior the EPT/PokerStars Grand Finale in Monte Carlo.

Play is due to get under way in 24 minutes, at 3pm local time. Between now & then, we are going to try & set the scene, so you guys will feel like you are here with us. If that's a bit boring for you, well come back once the action really starts.

Comp is a 10,000 chip jobbie, with blinds starting at 25-50, and it's a 4 day affair.

I gather they will play 5 levels today. Each level will be 90 minutes, with a 10 minute break at the end of each level.

It costs 10,000 Euros to enter.

The venue is not a casino, but an "arena" which is between the Casino Monte Carlo & the well posh Hermitage Hotel. In fact, the "arena" is the 2nd floor of a cinema. The tables are set out in 3 huge "ballroom" type jobbies, with a sort of open walkway at one end linking all three rooms.

The left hand room has 9 tables, the right hand room has 10 tables, & the middle room has 7 tables, including the TV table which is already set up.

There is plenty of room for spectators to mingle, so we hope to be able to "roam the rooms" getting chip counts for you.

The dealers are already sat at the tables, with the stacks of 10,000 chips all ready to be dished out to the players. Looks like 9 to a table. Number of runners will be confirmed once the registration has closed.

Hi Jim, no, decided not to play in the end. I played a 1,000 Euro Satellite last night (JT "bought" 50% of me, bless him), & ended up chopping it with a guy we travellled out with, Nick Whiten. Nick's a good friend, & we agreed that if we got heads-up, we would chop.

I really wanted to play this one, but I am feeling a bit under the weather, so decided in the end to give it a miss & concentrate on the Live Updates.

We shall be taking a look at the "hot" tables once the guys get sat down. And we shall be following certain players all the way. If you want to follow the progress of someone in particular, then LET US KNOW!

So far, we have had requests to follow Bengt Sonnett, who won the 500 in Walsall, & fellow Swede Daniel Larsson. We shall also follow the Nottingham boys - Julian Thew, Rob Yong, and the blonde forum-ites, Simon Trumper, El Blondie, Milky Bar Kid, Ariston, Mel Lofthouse, & co. The blackpool boys - Simon Nowab, Davre Clayton & Burnley John.

And the Superstars - Greg Raymer, Chris Moneymaker (not seen him yet), Surinder, Devilfish, El Blondie, The Hendon Mob, Noah Boeken, Marcel Luske, Pepe Klinger, John Shipley.

it's 3.10 now, but no sweat - they players are still wandering round looking for their seats.

And Rhow has just arrived, looking fresh as a daisy.

They have a feature table - the TV table - and Greg Raymer is in seat 6, with Tony G in seat 5 - THAT could end in tears. Raymer impressed me greatly in Copenhgagen, as a man and as a player, & if Tony G starts acting up, it could get HOT......

Noah Boeken & Simon Nowab are neighbours on T 26, Noah with position. On T1, it's Ram & Dave Clayton. T6 (or T9?), it's blonde forum-ite Ben Grundy & Rob Hollinck.

T4 looks hot too - Willie Tann, Luca Pagano, Angel ??(?, the WHUPC World Champion), & Rob Yong.
