Roberto Romanello


  • Rare online session reaps dividends for Roberto Romanello

  • Jon Spinks reaches two final tables

  • emran86 wins $64,184 after finishing in fourth place in the Sunday Million

Former European Poker Tour (EPT) Prague and World Poker Tour (WPT) Bratislava champion, Roberto Romanello, put in a rare session at the PokerStars virtual felt over the weekend and it turned out to be a great decision by the popular Welshman as he won more than $55,000 following three final table appearances.

Romanello’s biggest score of the weekend weighed in at $49,006.59 which he won after chopping the Sunday 500 heads-up before falling in second place. Romanello was joined at that particular final table by Dominik “Bounatirou” Nitsche who fell in fifth place for $18,617.25.

The Sunday 2nd Chance is where Romanello had more success, helping himself to the $4,468.00 eighth place prize. The deepest a Brit went in that event was fourth place, a finish had by “summuNNN” who collected $16,196.50.

Saturday saw Romanello finish eighth in the $215 NL Hold’em Turbo for $1,723.50 for a hat trick of finales. Will we be seeing more of Romanello in the online poker world? It looks like we could well do.

Once again it was the Sunday Million that produced the biggest score for British and Irish grinders this weekend. “emran86” came close to joining the list of British winners, but saw those dreams dashed when he fell in fourth place for $64,184.00. He was joined by fellow Brit “damiao4ever” at the final table whose tournament ended with a sixth place finish worth $36,920.00.

Like Romanello, Paul “Fold Machiii” Dando reached multiple final tables on Sunday. Dando came fourth in The Bigger $109 for $15,318.00 and seventh in the Sunday Rebuy for an additional $7,169.50.
