19 players signed up for the WPT Venice High Roller Event (€10,000 buy-in) and 8 of them made it to the final table - Dario Minieri, Marcello "LuckExpress10" Maringliano and Dominik Nitsche were the biggest names and the big favorites to take down the tournament. However, it ended up being a fight between Bjorn Lindberg and Marko Neumann for the first prize of €70,700.
It was a very exciting and tight heads-up match that ended when both players went all-in after the flop - Neumann with a set and Lindberg with a straight and flush draw. Turn was to no help for Lindberg, but the river card gave him the flush and also all of Neumann's chips.
A big congratulations to Bjorn Lindberg, winner of the 2011 WPT Venice High Roller Event!
