One week ago, the European Poker Tour San Remo, the second stop on the Season 9 schedule, kicked off with 797 players each putting up €5,300 to battle it out for poker supremacy at the Main Event.
On Thursday, the final eight players returned to the Casino Sanremo to play down to a winner.
The stacks were fairly deep, so there was plenty of play to be had, and it took more than three and a half hours for the first elimination to occur.
It was a long seven days of play, but in the end Ludovic Lacay captured the title, the €744,910 first-place prize, and a brand-new Shamballa Jewels bracelet.
