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!

high roller poker tournaments become not so interesting for many poker pro players becouse every tournament if it was playing in europe have poor entrances Sad this time only 19 was who playing sad but only in usa tournaments with huge buy in was still popular and many players play them but in europe if all will go in the same way all this huge buy in tournaments will soon be closed Sad

Looks like he has done very well the entire tourney, he was doing 2nd when they came to the final table, so i believe it wasnt that hard for him to get the reward. I am not saying te tourney was easy, just think about the nine players who paid €10k and didnt even got to the final table...
