in Romania. The series celebrated its 10-year anniversary and the organizers made sure the stop lives up to the reputation of the festival.
Main Event champ Marius Pertea
Romania's Marius Pertea
was the last man standing, notching his biggest score ever, almost winning twice as much as he did at this year's PokerStars Champion Monte-Carlo Main Event for finishing 11th place. Marius took down the title and the €90,925
first prize. He is the third Romanian to win the trophy in the last ten years. Two-time champion, fellow Romanian, Dan Murariu
also made a deep run in the tournament busting in 30th place.
Second place finisher Robert Vukovic
grinded his way to the event playing online
cash games at Unibet Poker
and accumulating enough points to get a seat for the live tournament. He turned his online points into €56,500
cold hard cash and a great experience. Third place finisher Pavao Veža
also walked the same route - getting a seat by turning loyalty points
at Unibet to a ticket to the event.
