It wasn't just Coventry what was hosting a PokerStars sponsored tour event this past weekend. The opening event of the Estrellas Poker Tour took place in Malaga and attracted an international line up with players from 25 countries represented.

None of the 260 runners could match home player Vedast Sanxis who defeated Germany's Fabian Deimann heads up to take the €60,970 first prize. There was British representation at the final table too with Richard Cashman making €9,120 for his sixth place finish.

Following his win, Sanxis said, “I can’t believe it. It’s like a dream. And I had luck in the key moments!”

Team PokerStars Pro, Juan Manuel Pastor added “This first Estrellas event been a huge success. All the players I’ve been talking to have been saying that it’s actually the best event they have ever been to in Spain. I can’t wait now for the next event in Alicante and I’m sure it will be a sell-out.”

The Tour now heads east along the Costa del Sol for the next leg in Alicante that is scheduled for 27th to 30th May. Satellites for the €1,000 buy in Main Event are currently up and running at PokerStars.
