The fabulous floating city of Venezia is famous for many things and one of those many things it is famous for is the fabulous Piazza San Marco. After the conclusion of Day 2 of the World Poker Tour (WPT) Venice another Piazza is having it's five minutes of fame, step forward Wanny Piazza.
Wanny Piazza started the day in 4th place with 154,000 and throughout the day he managed to more than double that effort ending with a lovely looking 373,500. It was a short and sweet story in stark contrast to nine levels of play squeezed into the two combined day ones. Today we only played four levels of 90-minutes and now the players have time to head into the twilight of the city to eat some fine food and drink some fine wine.
When the day started the field contained three WPT Champions Club members: Roberto Romanello, Alessio Isaia and Taylor Von Kriengenbergh. We lost the current WPT Venice champion Isaia but both Romanello and Von Kriengenbergh have made it through to Day 3 with decent chip stacks.
