In what turned out to be an impressive field of 150 players (with re-entries), the CasinoCoin Cup High Roller finally crowned a winner in the early hours of Tuesday morning. Gabriele Re beat his heads-up opponent Renato Messina to lock up his first prize of €40,000.
CasinoCoin High Roller winner, Gabriele Re
The final table of the CasinoCoin High Roller event at the Malta Poker Festival
It was a cracker of a final table with some well-known poker faces gracing the table. Johan Guilbert, better known as YoH ViraL is a Malta resident, and no stranger to the final table of big events. Re held it together, though, taking home the grand prize, as well as a trophy for his efforts. The prizes were as follows:
|# 1||GABRIELE RE||40,000.00|
|# 2||RENATO MESSINA||26,000.00|
|# 3||JOHAN GUILBERT||18,000.00|
|# 5||ANGELO VIETTI||9,100.00|
|# 6||EDVALDAS SKYRIUS||7,100.00|
|# 7||THOMAS LANGELAND||5,400.00|
|# 8||YOSSEF IFERGAN||4,500.00|
|# 9||CHRISTOPHER CALVERT||4,000.00|
Along with the amazing high roller prize money, players also had the opportunity to win 1 million CasinoCoin (CSC). CasinoCoin is a digital currency, developed specifically for the regulated gaming industry. Five players had big red casino coin stickers and carried bounties of 1 million CSC. It added an extra something tasty to the already prestigious tournament, giving players the chance to bag a little extra. All bounty players were eliminated on day one.
Well done to all the players who took part in this awesome event. Let's hope the next Malta Poker Festival high roller attracts even more players for even juicier prizes! We'll see you at the tables, until next time.
