Roberto Romanello Picks Up Two EPT Awards

Roberto Romanello

The eighth season of the popular European Poker Tour has come to an end and as is usually the case the staff, media and players all celebrated with the end of season awards ceremony. One man who was certainly celebrating was everyone's favourite Italian-Welshman Roberto Romanello; who picked up two awards and deservedly so.

Although Romanello narrowly missed out on the EPT Player of the Year award he picked up the vote from both the media and his peers to be given trophies for the EPT Achievement of the Year and the Player's Choice. Have a look at the table below to see his amazing results on the EPT during Season 8.

We are sure you'll agree that Romanello's results are more than impressive and in fact speak for themselves. But not only has Romanello put in the results he has also done so with his trademark smile and legendary table banter to boot and it is no wonder why he is one of the most popular players on the circuit today.

As someone who has worked at poker tournaments Romanello has played, including his EPT Prague win, and spent some time with him away from the felt I know that these awards will mean the world to him and I am delighted that he has been acknowledged by the media and his fellow players.

Everyone at UK & Ireland Pokernews would like to congratulate Romanello on his two much deserved awards and wish him continued success during the ninth season of the EPT.
