Alessio Isaia wins latest IPT event

Wednesday, 16 December 2009

The latest leg of the PokerStars Italian Poker Tour took place in San Remo over the weekend with Alessio Isaia taking the honours.

The 23-year-old steered his way through a drawn out final table to set up a marathon heads up clash with Alioscia Olivia. The chips eventually went in after three hours of two-handed play with Isaia holding Ac10c and Olivia 5h9h. The J8K74 board helped neither player, leaving Isaia to celebrate his maiden IPT title.

Isaia, who has made two WSOP final table appearances, took his career earnings past the $600,000 mark with the win. Runner up Olivia won €92,000 for his second place finish.
