Andrea Montini bags PokerStars IPT title
PokerStars online qualifier Andrea Montini has won the Italian Poker Tour Season 4 event in Campione, pocketing CHF 200,000 (about $215,000) in the process.
He beat a field of 385 players at the Casino Municipale, where the Italian Poker Tour generated a CHF 892,546 prize pool.
Montini's heads-up opponent was Vito Planeta, from Italy, a Supernova Elite on PokerStars.it who took second place for CHF 163,000. The final action saw Planeta go all-in with J♣8♣ but he fell way behind Montini's A♣Q♦ when the board ran out A♠5♥3♦[10h]2♦.
The next stop on the Italian Poker Tour will be at Saint Vincent from February 28 to March 4. You can see all the details over on the IPT website, and for more on this final table (in Italian!) visit our sister Italian blog.
