WPT Venice: Sam Trickett lets the title go to Andrea Dato
At the end of last week, the poker room of the Casino di Venezia in Italia hosted the edition 2014 of the Gioco Digitale WPT Venice Carnival. 144 players registered in the Main Event with a buy-in of 3,000. After six days of relentless competition, the poker tournament ended on a victory of Andrea Dato. During the last day of the tournament, six players still competed for the title, among whom most of them were renowned players on live circuit, namely the best English player Sam Trickett, Alessio Isaia (winner of the edition 2011), Sotirios Koutoupas, Andrea Dato, Mario Vojvoda and Maurizio Saieva.
The champion of the EPT Deauville 2014, Sotirios Koutoupas, was the first eliminated of the final table for a gain of 19,400. Sam Trickett who proceeded like a real hangman, eliminated his opponents one by one, to begin with Alessio Isaia in the 5th place (24,000), shortly followed by Mario Vojvoda and Maurizio Saieva. The latter have pocketed respectively 31,000 and 42,000 for their 4th and 3rd place. After this series of eliminations, the English faced Andrea Dato in heads-up. The final face-to-face was fiercely played because four levels were necessary to find a winner among both players. Despite an excellent beginning before the heads-up, Sam Trickett was quickly in a bad patch in front of Andrea Dato at the top of his shape. Andrea Dato won his first title in Venice and the 105,000 promised to the winner, while Trickett contented himself with 66,000.
