World Poker Tour winners

Incase you missed it: World Poker Tour Malta and Borgata Poker Open both ended a couple of days ago. Below is some information on both the tournaments.

WPT Malta
The stop in Malta was the first in WPT history and it ended up being a huge success even though most of the pros decided to play Borgata Poker Open in the U.S - with exception of Kara Scott and Phil Hellmuth.

The main event final table, just like many expected, didn't include any familiar faces. The winner ended up being Matt Giannetti and he received a prize check of $273,200. Giannetti said in an interview after the big win that he had been playing extremely bad and he could thank the poker gods for winning the tournament.


WPT Borgata Poker Open
The Main Event of WPT Borgata Poker Open attracted a field of 1,313 players, making it the largest tournament in WPT history. After Day 1a and b had come to an end. Jeff Madsen, 2-time WSOP bracelet winner, was in the very top of the field. But things didn't go so well for him during Day 2 and he didn't make it though to Day 3. The biggest name to survive Day 2 was instead Vanessa Selbs. Selbst continued playing well during Day 3 and she was also one of the 27 players who made it to Day 4.

But everything came to an end at the early stages of Day 4 and she was eliminated in 23rd place for $18,868. At the end of Day 4 the tournament was down to a final table of 6 players. And just like the WPT Malta final table, it was a quite anonymous final table. But thanks to the first prize of $922,441 it was still very interesting to follow the final table action. The winner of the huge first place prize ended up being Bobby Oboodi after a very thrilling heads-up match against Jin Hwang.

So, Matt Giannetti, hein? Never heard of it? His he known in Malta? Does he makes part of BRM? If he doesnt, he should, he would have a lot more publicity on his victory and he could easily get a sponsor faster than any oter way! And what about that chick in the picture (the one on the right)? Her face looks familiar, i think the lady mob safer draw was based on her! Big Smile

Ok, i am sorry for my very limited culture in terms of known actual poker players. I understand that many of you know him, and i can already understand why: if he makes part in so many final tables of recent big tourneys, but normaly i just look to the winners name, or some real big (like in "huge" Blink names, such has the ones sponsored by the largest poker rooms...
