The European Poker Tour’s €100,000 buy-in Super High Roller event already has an impressive field that includes Daniel Negreanu, Jason Mercier, Patrik Antonius and Viktor “Isildur1″ Blom.

The tournament, which already has 20 confirmed players, will take place starting April 23 in Monaco as the kickoff tournament for the EPT Grand Final. With 20 people buying in at €100K a piece, the prize pool is already at €2 million.

Here’s the list of confirmed players, according to PokerStars’ blog here.

“We’re extremely pleased to have such a fantastic response to the first ever European Super High Roller event and we look forward to welcoming some of the biggest names in international poker,” EPT President Edgar Stuchly told PokerStars’ blog.

Blom won a $100K buy-in event earlier this year at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure, while Katchalov won the PCA high-roller event two years ago.

It remains to be seen whether some of the other biggest names in poker will join the tournament, such as Tom “durrrr” Dwan, Phil Ivey, and Phil Hellmuth.
