European Poker Tour - Season 10
Antonio Buonanno wins Grand Final Main Event for €1,240,000
The PokerStars and Monte-Carlo®Casino EPT Grand Final Main Event ended in dramatic fashion when Antonio Buonanno saw off UK pro Jack Salter in a marathon 10-hour heads-up battle. Buonanno’s win drew EPT Season 10 to a close, and with it one of the most demanding Main Events in history. A record 310 hands were played on the final table alone, and Buonanno’s tireless efforts were richly rewarded with €1,240,000 in prize money, and an EPT title to take home to Italy.
In total, 650 players took part in this year’s EPT showpiece in Monaco - an increase of 119 on the previous season. But Buonanno’s win wasn’t the only noteworthy success in Monaco. Elsewhere, Philipp Gruissem added €993,963 to his career-haul after winning the €25,000 High Roller title, while Daniel Colman earned a staggering €1,539,300 in the €100,000 Super High Roller.
Victoria Coren Mitchell becomes first-ever two-time EPT champ!
In 2006, Team PokerStars Pro Victoria Coren Mitchell made history after winning EPT Season 3’s London Main Event for €941,513 - the first win by a female player since the EPT began in 2004. Eight years and 73 events on from that victory in London, she added a second title to her name after beating 555 players in Sanremo. Until then, no player had ever recorded two EPT Main Event wins, making Coren Mitchell’s success a major highlight on another unforgettable EPT season.
