The Italian Poker Tour has a new champion in San Remo.
This past weekend, Italy's Alessio Isaia outlasted the ten-hour final table to collect the trophy and €140,000.
At just 23 years old, Isaia already has four years of live poker experience behind him. In his short poker career, he's managed to earn $600,000 and sit at two WSOP final tables.
Isaia went head to head with PokerStars.it player Alioscia Oliva for nearly three hours before finally getting [10c] A♣ all-in against Oliva's 5♥ 9♥. The board ran out J♦8♥K♦7♠4♠ and Isaia claimed his championship.
PokerStars player Alioscia Oliva takes home a respectable €93,000 for the runner-up finish.
The next IPT event we will head back to Venice for IPT Venice January 14th-18th, 2010.
