Gabriel Iemmito Wins Second APAT WCOAP Title In a Week

Gabriel Iemmito

Earlier this week, UK & Ireland PokerNews took a look at the results from the first four events of the 2015 Amateur Poker Association & Tour (APAT) World Championships Of Amateur Poker (WCOAP) that is currently in full swing at Aspers casino in Stratford, London.

One of the first champions of the 2015 WCOAP was Italy's Gabriel Iemmito who outlasted a field of 33 entrants in the Open Face Chinese Poker event. Iemmito's prize on that occasion was £605 in cash, a coveted gold medal and a commemorative WCOAP bracelet. Iemmito now has a bracelet for each wrist — plus an additional gold medal and £1,005 in cash — after he emerged victorious in the Mix Max event to win his second title within a week. Quite an achievement we're sure that you'll agree.

The sixth event on the schedule almost had a double winner because by the time the 73 entrants on the 4/5/6 card Pot Limit Omaha Dealer's Choice event were reduced to the final table of nine, Event #3's champion, Milena Langdale, was still in contention for the title. By the time only three players remained Langdale was still in the hunt, but eventual champion Tony Marren sent Langdale to the rail and spoiled the party.

The busiest event of the 20015 WCOAP so far took place on Tuesday lunchtime, which makes the 158-strong crowd even more impressive. When the dust finally settled in the early hours of Wednesday morning it was Stewart Kirby who was the last man standing, claiming not only his first cash in an APAT event but also his first APAT title.

Rounding out this short recap is the result from the Mixed event, which saw players battle it out for one round of no limit Hold'em and then one of pot limit Omaha.

Hungary's Balazs Somodi dealt with the changes the best and he bulldozed his way to the victory, adding £1,135 in prize money to his already impressive total of $172,833.
