Mustapha Kanit, partypoker, Roberto Romanello.

On the last day of partypoker's 2018 Caribbean Poker Party festival, one of the poker room's very own ambassadors nabbed the top spot of the $10,000 High Roller event for a whopping $450,000 payday!
The event drew a field of 196 players in total, and Romanello from Wales beat Italian Mustapha Kanit in a heads-up match after they agreed on an ICM (independent chip model) arrangement. A bit of money was still at stake aside from the trophy, and both players went on with the match in a friendly and humorous mood. In the end Romanello's A-K defeated Kanit's K-deuce, thus finishing the tournament during the wee hours of the morning.
Roberto Romanello's highest live cash payout was when he won 1st place in December 2010 at the EPT 7 Prague $5,300 NLHE Main Event for $846,180.
Even if $450k isn't his best live cash ever on his poker career, Romanello was very elated to have won the partypoker-brand trophy. Still, the first prize in this event is one of his largest cashes he has won so far.
In a way, Roberto Romanello's entrance to the world of poker is pretty much like how Sam Trickett did it. Romanello picked up poker in 2005 after a sports-related injury sidelined him for three months, whereas Trickett suffered a severe knee injury playing football and he also started to play poker in 2005.
Romanello is currently in 1st place on the Wales All Time Money List.

| It looks like to me, that the whole carribean party poker wasnt that much of a success. The prizes arent that big for the buy ins, arent they?|
10k USD buy in, and the first place only paid 450k USD.
And this one was called the high roller's.
There are tournaments with higher buy in that this prize, when you think
of a high roller's one

| Now this thing it does not matter. |
They could very well to name it sit & go like in pokerstars with 180 players.
Here they had 196 but is not relevant
This game has been completed and we can only congratulate them all those who made a profit.
High roller or sit & go for some players is the same thing...

Just the timing itself is bad. November is usually full with rain and mid-range degrees so its not the perfect vacation weather for sure.

| Its great to see Roberto back winning tournaments and congratz to him. I remember watching him many years on the 'Late Night Poker' programme and he was always a very talkative character but a very good poker player as well|

| Good win for romanello who make his buyin of ten thousand dollars in final money of almost half million of dollars, to be correct 45 times bigger final money than buyin. Big money, not kniw if he buyin direct or go and win some satellite.|

WSOP Main Event gives you more for 10k that's for sure.

| Lately there have been a lot of events hosted by partypoker for aspiring high rollers from all over the world. Congratulations to Roberto Romanello for winning the US$10,300 buy-in tournament and earning US$450,000. Roberto rapidly turned his US$10,300 investment into nearly half a million dollars. That's purely awesome.|
