EPT San Remo: Victoria Coren Mitchell realizes the first double victory of the circuit
The European Poker Tour Sanremo (EPT) ended during the last weekend on a second triumph of Victoria Coren Mitchell, a first on this circuit of live poker. It was necessary to wait for the tenth season to see a player realizing a double victory in the European Poker Tour. Other players such as Mike McDonald (five final tables), Arnaud Mattern (three final tables), Jason Mercier, Kevin MacPhee or Ram Vaswani were in the running to win a double victory but it was finally the British woman player who was the first to realize it. Victoria Coren Mitchell marked the story of the circuit in 2006 by being the first woman player winning a stage of the EPT, during a stage of the circuit in London in front of 397 opponents. She pocketed £500,000 in a tournament with a buy-in of £3,500.
Eight years after her victory in London, Victoria Coren Mitchell stood out in the Main Event 4,900 of the EPT San Remo on last Sunday, on a field of 556 players in the poker room of the magnificent Casino Sanremo. The British pocketed 476,100 out of the prizepool of 2,480,872, after a short heads-up of 15 minutes with Giacomo Fundaro. The latter settled with 298,700. However, Vicky Coren started the final table as being the shortstack, but she resisted until winning the title, while eliminations followed one after the other. The final table gathered other players such as Jordan Westmorland, eliminated in the 3rd place for 213,850, Andrea Benelli (4th, 166.700), Andreas Goeller (5th, 130,750), Bruno Stefanelli (6th, 102,700), Andrija Martic (7th, 76,650) and Emmanuel Pariset (8th, 53,100).
