Romanello Seeks Triple Crown At WSOPE Event 2 Final Table

Last week, Event 2 of the 2011 WSOP Europe got off to a record breaking start after 771 players entered the €1,090 No-Limit Hold’em event.
Four days later and the nine man final table has been set with the big name at the table none other than Roberto Romanello.
The Welsh pro first started playing poker in 2005 after a soccer injury forced him out of the game, and he has been making an impact on the poker circuit ever since.
During his short time as a pro, Romanello has notched up an impressive $2,157,142 in live tournament earnings. Counted amongst his poker victories is a win at the 2010 EPT Prague for €640,000, as well as victories in 2011 at the WPT Bratislava for $197,861, and EPT Barcelona Turbo Six Max for €110,250.
Now with the possibility of a WSOPE bracelet and a Triple Crown within reach, the affable poker pro noted for his well-honed trash-talking skills will be the headline at this year’s Event 2 final table.
However, if Roberto Romanello is to realise a Triple Crown he will first have to navigate his way through a final table of solid players also intent on capturing a coveted gold bracelet, as well as the €148,030 ($201,257) top prize.
As the final table of Event 2 resumes today in Cannes, this is how the players currently line-up:
1. Gianluca Speranza – 757k
2. Andrew Hinrichsen – 434k
3. Roberto Romanello – 253k
4. Nabil Nedjai – 250k
5. Eric Baudry – 232k
6. Tarcisio Bruno – 153k
7. John Eames – 106k
8. Gregory Lejolivet – 95k
9. Bernard Guigon – 53k
Meanwhile, notable names falling short of the final table but cashing in at the WSOP Europe event included Matthew Waxman (74th), McLean Karr (72nd), Randy Dorfman (53rd), Joseph Cheong (48th), Toby Lewis (44th), Dan Kelly (39th), Kevin MacPhee (33rd), Vanessa Selbst (32nd), and Erik Cajelais (20th).
