Posted by Steve Ruddock on Feb 08, 2011 Posted in Poker News | No Comments »

The €3,000 buy-in Main Event at the World Poker Tour Venice attracted a large field of 523 players –not bad for a WPT tournament in the old-world, and a first-time tournament to boot—and after days of hard play, suck-outs, coolers, and bluffs the final table is set —And what a final table it is!

Amongst the finalists are a number of familiar names in the poker world including chip-leader David Vamplew, who won the PokerStars EPT London in 2010, as well as the Italian Full Tilt Poker Pro Alessio Isaia, and Team PokerStars Russia Pro Maxim Lykov who is looking for his first major tournament win, who are sitting in 2nd and 4th place respectively on the leader-board.

Here is a look at the final eight competitors, as well as their chip counts in the WPT Venice Main Event:

1. David Vamplew 4,100,000

2. Alessio Isaia 2,910,000

3. Szabolcs Mayer 2,585,000

4. Max Lykov 2,175,000

5. Adrien Camille Garrigues 1,555,000

6. Emmanuel Rodrigues 1,465,000

7. Luca Fiorini 470,000

8. Paolini Renato 405,000

The winner of the tournament will pocket an impressive €380,000, with 8th place worth €31,960. The WPT Venice is part of an effort by the WPT to branch out further into the European Market by incorporating some smaller buy-in tournament series in previously untapped locales.
