Venice hosts latest leg of Italian Poker Tour
It's hard to believe we're already well in to season two of the PokerStars Italian Poker Tour. This series has surpassed all expectations and is now one of the most hotly-contested events in the European poker calendar.
Tomorrow sees the start of IPT Venice, a €2,000 (+ €200) buy-in tournament held in one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
Casino Ca' Noghera is the place to be, but if you can't make it you can follow all the action on our sister Italian blog. There you'll find Matteo Viola hard at work bringing you the words and photos. Don't read Italian? A small problem, you may think, but by using Google's translation tool you'll be up to speed in no time! Warning: the tool does not come with free arm-waving and wild Italian gesticulation.
Watch out for a host of big names in Venice, including the Italian faction of Team PokerStars Pro and Team PokerStars Online as they battle to repeat the trick pulled off by Luigi Pignataro, who won the title and €190,000 in the season's first event in San Marino in June.
