Live Tournament Updates
Welcome to Day 1A of the Gioco Digitale WPT Venice Carnival
Level 1: 50-100, ante
Welcome to the final European event of Season XII and what better way to end it than in the most beautiful city in the world.
We are, of course, talking about the Gioco Digitale WPT Venice Carnival coming to you live and direct from the world’s oldest casino: The Casino di Venezia.
The center piece of a great week of poker is the €2,700 + €300 Main Event and for the next six days we will be bringing you as much action as our pens can muster.
The last time we were in his iconic venue Rocco Palumbo took the title on a final table containing the legend of the game Mike Sexton who finished a very respectable third place. Palumbo earned a WPT World Championship seat for that win and put it to good use finishing eighth to add $101,935 to the $180,692 he pocketed for his win in Venice.
We fully expect Palumbo to return to defend his crown where he will compete against the likes of Sam Trickett. Europe’s all time live tournament money leader is in the city and will be searching for his first big win of 2014.
Cards will fly at 14:30 (local time) and in the meantime make sure you check out the finer details of the tournament rules and stipulations right here.
