Largest career win to date
Welsh poker pro, Roberto Romanello (34) pushed his lifetime poker earnings over the $1.5 million mark when he took down the European Poker Tour Prague Main Event this week in a heads up against Emiliano Bono, taking home a Euro 640000 paycheck.
After a tantalisingly close sixth place at EPT Copenhagen earlier this year, an emotional Romanello broke down after the final card was played – this is his largest career win to date.
The main event saw 563 entrants at a Euro 5300 buy-in that created a prize pool of Euro 2 730 550.  80 players cashed out.
Final table results:
1          Roberto Romanello     Euro 640,000
2          Emiliano Bono             Euro 435,000
3          Marcin Horecki            Euro 247,000
4          Peter Skripka              Euro 163,000
5          Marco Leonzio            Euro 130,000
6          Jan Bendik                  Euro 100,000
7          Manuel Bevand           Euro 71,000
8          Roberto Nulli               Euro 54,550
