British duo Roberto Romanello and John Eames have reached the final table of Event #2 at the World Series of Poker Europe, the €1,090 No Limit Hold'em Event, which kicks off shortly in Cannes, France.
Romanello goes into the nine-handed final table with 253,000 chips, enough to place him third when the cards are back in the air. The popular Welshman now has the chance to not only become a coveted Triple Crown winner but to be the first-ever European Triple Crown winner having won EPT Prague, WPT Bratislava and possible a WSOPE bracelet by the time play comes to an end today.
Eames is another familiar face on the European circuit and although he has a little more work to do than Romanello as he has 106,500 chips at his disposal, he is certainly not in a position to panic just yet as blinds are going to be 3,000/6,000 for the first 20 minutes so he still has plenty of room to manoeuvre.
Each of the nine surviving players are now guaranteed to walk away with no less than €13,982 but a wallet-stretching €140,080 and a gold WSOP bracelet awaits the eventual winner. Can Romanello become the second British Triple Crown winner after Jake Cody became the first in Las Vegas earlier in the year? Tune in to find out.
