Chieregato Crowned WPT Venice Champ

Chieregato Crowned WPT Venice Champ

Thursday, 23 April 2015

Amedeo Chieregatoro has been crowned the WPT National Venice champion after topping a 330-runner field earlier this week.

The Italian veteran pocketed a first prize of €65,000 after outlasting a top class final table that included WPT Champions Club member Andrea Dato and Max Pescatori.

It was past midnight by the time Chieregatoro sealed victory over heads up opponent Pierangelo Cancian. In the end it took a cooler to separate them. Cancian pushed with AhJd but was unlucky enough to walk into pocket kings. The queen high board helped neither player which gave Chieregatoro the title and his biggest live score to date.
