WPT Vienna final table has been set – the live streaming with hole cards is on tomorrow starting 13.30 CET – here are the profiles of the final 8:
This extremely cheerful and fun Italian has already seen the final table spotlights at the WPT. In 2009, he managed to get on the final table of the WPT Venice. Now he is going for all or nothing together with his interesting card protector – John Paul II. Mario has been playing poker for four years ago and is a journalist back in Italy so he thinks he has a greater advantage at the final because he is a poker blogger. His favourite hand is and you will often see him wearing white clothes as he loves that color. If he is not playing poker he will be trying to get himself to Buenos Aires as that is his favourite vacation spot and when asked what is his favourite food, he answered: ‘Italian! In huge quantity!”
A friend of Max Lykov, Dmitry has built up his stack and just went for it every time he had a sniff of the action. This Russian pro has been playing poker for the past 5 years and already won RPS Grand final and ME Deepstack in Venetian for 315 000. Before he started playing poker, he went to the University of economy in Russia but the love towards cards was stronger. He will have a rather interesting rail tomorrow and it will be rather packed – apart from a few girls, Dmitry also invited Max and Vitaly Lunkin.
When you look at him at the poker table you might think he is just an ordinary person, but you would be wrong. Valentin is a constructioner back in Romania, married and has only been playing poker for 2 years but he has already cashed for 10 000 USD and we just know he invested the money into his hobby – motorbikes.
With the lucky number 7 and his favourite hand being 7 7, how can things go wrong for this man tomorrow?
We have all heard of family pots, but family bracelets? It was just like it happened yesterday – Natalia Nikitina won the WPT event in Paris and Maxim was there supporting her. But this time, cards didn’t like Natalia – she busted during Day 2 and hit the rail immediately. What a good girlfriend!
You would be surprised to know, but NLH is not Maxims favorite game – he actually enjoys playing PLO Omaha much more and claims he is the best PLO player in the world. His biggest cash so far was for 77 000 euro and he also played in Pokerstars FPS Highroller in Paris and took it down. Let’s see how he does in Hold’em!
Whoever said poker coaching sites are useless, is obviously very wrong. Maximilian started playing poker on one of them and, not only cashed for 35k online, but managed to get to a televised final table in Vienna. This 22 year old student from Vienna loves to play mixed games and multi table his days away. Four years of poker experience are finally paying off – Noll will be giving his best to take down the title in his hometown.
Whoever said the Italian players are fish, must be swallowing their tongues right now – from small stack to almost chiplead, from chiplead to small stack..what a rollercoaster. Always smartly dressed and smiling in an interview, Alessio is after a back to back titles. After winning the WPT in Venice a month ago, he says he is not getting any free stuff and perks but, au contraire, spending more money then before.
Still, he knows how to manage his stack and bankroll – he has been playing poker for 5 years and has been on the FT of 2 WSOP events. Watch out, Austria!
Party Poker qualifiers run like Gods! We all know Scandinavian players are in top of all the leaderboards so this result is not a surprise. Simon has been playing poker in and out of Denmark for more than 5 years and played 3 WPT events so far. His biggest cash was for 200 000 when he won the Party Poker Million. Apart from that amazing success, he has managed to get on the TV table of Master Classics, various EPT tournaments and the Irish Open. Way to go!
Another local! Markus has been playing poker for a long time and his career includes entries in WSOP events, GSOP i Riga and Malta and a 7 000 eur cash in the casino Concorde in Vienna. Man of not many words is going to skip partying and going to go home and work on his strategy for tomorrow because he is determined to make his biggest cash ever right here in Vienna.
