$25,000 NL Hold'em
MONTE CARLO MILLIONS

Submitted by: Ozone

Most casual poker fans probably do not know of the existence of the "Monte Carlo Millions" tournament, but the world's top pros are more than aware of it. Over 100 of them made the trip to Monte Carlo and coughed up the $25,000 entry fee to battle for the one million dollar first place prize. When the dust settled, the player whom many consider to be the world's best poker player, Phil Ivey, was the man with the cash.

Ivey battled through four days of tough competition to best his 3rd place finish from last year's inaugural Monte Carlo Millions. Englishman Paul Jackson lost to Ivey heads up but took $600,000 back to England for his efforts.

John Juanda had a nice 6th place showing which netted him $100,000. Chris "Jesus" Ferguson won $35,000 for a strong 11th place finish.
