Red Spade Luca Moschitta wins IPT Saint Vincent and €180,000
PokerStars Team Online's Luca Moschitta has today won IPT Saint Vincent beating a field of 358 players to win the and €180,000 first place prize.
It's Moschitta's 7th IPT Main Event cash and the second time that he's managed to make it to the heads-up. Last time he got down to the final two - at IPT Nova Gorica in 2011 - he lost out to Oleksii Kovalchuk. This time Moschitta refused to settle for silver and beat Gianbattista Sacchella into second place to take the title and the largest share of the prize pool. Sacchella collected €115,000, still an incredible return on his €2,200 buy-in.
Moschitta has not once but twice bought Porsche sports cars using FPPs accrued through playing on PokerStars and then PokerStars.it. He can now cap off being one of the hardest working (and fastest) online players in Italy with live success. Perhaps an IPT trophy would look a little too much mounted on the bonnet of one of those Porsches?
The next stop takes place in Sanremo 2-6 May for the Season 4 IPT Grand Final. Check the full schedule of all 18 events, and how to qualify, by clicking on this link.
