Pier Paolo Fabretti beaten to IPT Nova Gorica title

Team PokerStars Pro Pier Paolo Fabretti yesterday came close to scoring his second live title but just missed out heads up to fellow Italian Claudio Di Giacomo. Fabretti scored €70,000 for his runner-up finish but Fellow Italian Claudio Di Giacomo pocketed €90,000 after topping the €700 Italian Poker Tour Accumulator event. A prize pool of €436,937 was built up through 715 entries, thanks to players being allowed to accumulate multiple end of Day 1 stacks.


Fabretti had to settle for second place

Fabretti has enjoyed success on the IPT before when he won the €10,000 IPT Perla High Roller, also in Nova Gorica, which was his largest live score before yesterday's result. Learn more about Pier Paolo Fabretti by clicking here.
