The San Remo stop on the PokerStars.net European Poker Tour is typically one of the most popular of each season, but this year broke records by becoming the biggest EPT event out of all six seasons thus far on European soil. And travel difficulties due to volcanic ash and canceled flights could not even keep players from taking trains, buses, and cars to the northeastern Italian town for the €5,300 EPT San Remo Main Event.

Day 1A brought 585 players to the Casino Municipale, and Day 1B added another 655, making for a total of 1,240 players and a prize pool of €6,014,000. The money was set to be divided amongst the top 184 players according to their finishes, and a whopping €1,250,000 was set aside for the eventual winner. When the starting days were complete, there were 276 survivors from the first and 344 from the second, and the overall chip leader was Michael Eerhart with 247,800 chips, followed by Bertrand Grospellier with 232,200.

Day 3 took the field from 627 players down to 194 and stopped play a few spots before the money bubble. Dmitry Stelmak led the pack after that day with 670K. Day 4 quickly moved the field toward the money, and during hand-for-hand play, Michael Robinson pushed all-in with th 8c on a tc 8h ac flop, but Michael Piper called with pocket aces. The qd turn and td river gave Piper the best full house and eliminated Robinson on the bubble. The rest of the players were guaranteed a minimum of €7,500 each, and some of the players cashing that day included Grospellier in 144th, Jason Mercier in 100th, Dan Shak in 84th, and Chris Bjorn in 68th. Finally, with 66 players left, the action stopped with Jakob Carlsson in the lead with 1.8 million chips.

Day 5 trimmed the field even further as players like Dag Martin Mikkelsen and Nick Schulman exited, and the action stopped with 24 players at the end of the night. EPT Snowfest champion Allan Baekke was the chip leader with 3,483,000 chips, followed by Dermot Blain with 2,568,000. Day 6 played down to the final table, and with nine players left, it was Claudio Rinaldi who moved all-in with ah qc and Carlsson who called with pocket fours. The board of jc jh 9c ts jd gave Carlsson the full house and eliminated Rinaldi in ninth place with €63,500.

The final table was then set for April 21 as follows:

Seat 1: Claudio Piceci 4,460,000
Seat 2: Alexey Rybin 1,890,000
Seat 3: Atanas Gueorguiev 2,520,000
Seat 4: Jakob Carlsson 13,525,000

Seat 6: Liv Boeree 3,440,000
Seat 7: Toni Pettersson 5,035,000
Seat 8: Michael Piper 4,600,000

Play got underway, and Pettersson was quite the active player. He allowed Rybin to double through him, then got involved with Gueorguiev, who was all-in with pocket nines to the as qh of Pettersson. The board came 2h js qc jc kh, and two pair for Pettersson eliminated Atanas Gueorguiev in eighth place with €90,000.

Claudio Piceci was the next to get involved, though the hand started innocently with he and Carlsson going to a ad 6s kc flop. They checked to the qc turn, and more chips were put into the pot for the 3d on the river. Piceci then moved all-in with 6c 5c, but that lost to the A-2 of Carlsson, and Piceci left with €150,000 for the seventh place finish.

One of the short stacks during six-handed play was Guiseppe Diep, who pushed from the small blind with 9c 8c, but Piper called with pocket tens. The board produced 8h jc 2h 2c 6h, which wasn’t enough to save Diep, who left in sixth place with €210,000.

Alexey Rybin started off with a nice double-up but needed to do it again. He got involved with Carlsson to see a 2d th 8d flop, at which point, Carlsson bet and Rybin check-raised all-in with ah tc against the jacks of his opponent. A qs turn card and 5h river card ended it for Rybin, who left with €270,000 for fifth place.

Michael Piper was the next to move, and he got into a preflop raising war with Carlsson that led Piper to move all-in with qh th for a big stack of 4,695,000 chips. Carlsson called with ac kh, and the board came 2s 2c ks 4h 2h to end Piper’s run in fourth place, for which he was awarded €345,000.

Three-handed play started with Carlsson holding a monster chip lead, but the double-ups were aplenty and Carlsson took a hit to his stack through it all. Ultimately, Pettersson was the one to be at risk for the last time. He went to see a flop with Boeree, and it came 4s kd 3s at which point some raising prompted Boeree to move all-in with pocket threes. Pettersson called for the remainder of his chips with kh qd, and the top pair didn’t improve on the ad turn or 6h river. Toni Pettersson left in third place with €420,000.

Heads-up play then began as follows:

Liv Boeree 23,215,000
Jakob Carlsson 14,065,000

Carlsson came back from the deficit to climb into the chip lead, but several big hands for Boeree put her back in control. With 28 million in front of Boeree and 9 million for Carlsson, a dinner break broke the action for an hour. Upon their return, it didn’t take long for Carlsson to make his final push for 6.35 million chips holding ah 6d. Boeree called with pocket fives, and the board came td ks 8s 7s jc, and that was it for Jakob Carlsson, who took home €750,000 for the second place finish.

Liv Boeree became the third woman to ever take down a EPT Main Event, and she was awarded a PokerStars trophy and €1,250,000 in cash for the accomplishment.

When the starting days were complete, there were 276 survivors from the first and 344 from the second, and the overall chip leader was Michael Eerhart with 247,800 chips, followed by Bertrand Grospellier with 232,200.

Day 3 took the field from 627 players down to 194 and stopped play a few spots before the money bubble. Dmitry Stelmak led the pack after that day with 670K. Day 4 quickly moved the field toward the money, and during hand-for-hand play, Michael Robinson pushed all-in with th 8c on a tc 8h ac flop, but Michael Piper called with pocket aces. The qd turn and td river gave Piper the best full house and eliminated Robinson on the bubble. The rest of the players were guaranteed a minimum of €7,500 each, and some of the players cashing that day included Grospellier in 144th, Jason Mercier in 100th, Dan Shak in 84th, and Chris Bjorn in 68th. Finally, with 66 players left, the action stopped with Jakob Carlsson in the lead with 1.8 million chips.

Day 5 trimmed the field even further as players like Dag Martin Mikkelsen and Nick Schulman exited, and the action stopped with 24 players at the end of the night. EPT Snowfest champion Allan Baekke was the chip leader with 3,483,000 chips, followed by Dermot Blain with 2,568,000. Day 6 played down to the final table, and with nine players left, it was Claudio Rinaldi who moved all-in with ah qc and Carlsson who called with pocket fours. The board of jc jh 9c ts jd gave Carlsson the full house and eliminated Rinaldi in ninth place with €63,500.

The final table was then set for April 21 as follows:

Seat 1: Claudio Piceci 4,460,000
Seat 2: Alexey Rybin 1,890,000
Seat 3: Atanas Gueorguiev 2,520,000
Seat 4: Jakob Carlsson 13,525,000
Seat 5: Guiseppe Diep 1,830,000
Seat 6: Liv Boeree 3,440,000
Seat 7: Toni Pettersson 5,035,000
Seat 8: Michael Piper 4,600,000

Play got underway, and Pettersson was quite the active player. He allowed Rybin to double through him, then got involved with Gueorguiev, who was all-in with pocket nines to the as qh of Pettersson. The board came 2h js qc jc kh, and two pair for Pettersson eliminated Atanas Gueorguiev in eighth place with €90,000.

Claudio Piceci was the next to get involved, though the hand started innocently with he and Carlsson going to a ad 6s kc flop. They checked to the qc turn, and more chips were put into the pot for the 3d on the river. Piceci then moved all-in with 6c 5c, but that lost to the A-2 of Carlsson, and Piceci left with €150,000 for the seventh place finish.

One of the short stacks during six-handed play was Guiseppe Diep, who pushed from the small blind with 9c 8c, but Piper called with pocket tens. The board produced 8h jc 2h 2c 6h, which wasn’t enough to save Diep, who left in sixth place with €210,000.

Alexey Rybin started off with a nice double-up but needed to do it again. He got involved with Carlsson to see a 2d th 8d flop, at which point, Carlsson bet and Rybin check-raised all-in with ah tc against the jacks of his opponent. A qs turn card and 5h river card ended it for Rybin, who left with €270,000 for fifth place.

Michael Piper was the next to move, and he got into a preflop raising war with Carlsson that led Piper to move all-in with qh th for a big stack of 4,695,000 chips. Carlsson called with ac kh, and the board came 2s 2c ks 4h 2h to end Piper’s run in fourth place, for which he was awarded €345,000.

Three-handed play started with Carlsson holding a monster chip lead, but the double-ups were aplenty and Carlsson took a hit to his stack through it all. Ultimately, Pettersson was the one to be at risk for the last time. He went to see a flop with Boeree, and it came 4s kd 3s at which point some raising prompted Boeree to move all-in with pocket threes. Pettersson called for the remainder of his chips with kh qd, and the top pair didn’t improve on the ad turn or 6h river. Toni Pettersson left in third place with €420,000.

Heads-up play then began as follows:

Liv Boeree 23,215,000
Jakob Carlsson 14,065,000

Carlsson came back from the deficit to climb into the chip lead, but several big hands for Boeree put her back in control. With 28 million in front of Boeree and 9 million for Carlsson, a dinner break broke the action for an hour. Upon their return, it didn’t take long for Carlsson to make his final push for 6.35 million chips holding ah 6d. Boeree called with pocket fives, and the board came td ks 8s 7s jc, and that was it for Jakob Carlsson, who took home €750,000 for the second place finish.

Liv Boeree became the third woman to ever take down a EPT Main Event, and she was awarded a PokerStars trophy and €1,250,000 in cash for the accomplishment.

The San Remo stop on the PokerStars.net European Poker Tour is typically one of the most popular of each season, but this year broke records by becoming the biggest EPT event out of all six seasons thus far on European soil. And travel difficulties due to volcanic ash and canceled flights could not even keep players from taking trains, buses, and cars to the northeastern Italian town for the €5,300 EPT San Remo Main Event.

Day 1A brought 585 players to the Casino Municipale, and Day 1B added another 655, making for a total of 1,240 players and a prize pool of €6,014,000. The money was set to be divided amongst the top 184 players according to their finishes, and a whopping €1,250,000 was set aside for the eventual winner. When the starting days were complete, there were 276 survivors from the first and 344 from the second, and the overall chip leader was Michael Eerhart with 247,800 chips, followed by Bertrand Grospellier with 232,200.

Day 3 took the field from 627 players down to 194 and stopped play a few spots before the money bubble. Dmitry Stelmak led the pack after that day with 670K. Day 4 quickly moved the field toward the money, and during hand-for-hand play, Michael Robinson pushed all-in with th 8c on a tc 8h ac flop, but Michael Piper called with pocket aces. The qd turn and td river gave Piper the best full house and eliminated Robinson on the bubble. The rest of the players were guaranteed a minimum of €7,500 each, and some of the players cashing that day included Grospellier in 144th, Jason Mercier in 100th, Dan Shak in 84th, and Chris Bjorn in 68th. Finally, with 66 players left, the action stopped with Jakob Carlsson in the lead with 1.8 million chips.

Day 5 trimmed the field even further as players like Dag Martin Mikkelsen and Nick Schulman exited, and the action stopped with 24 players at the end of the night. EPT Snowfest champion Allan Baekke was the chip leader with 3,483,000 chips, followed by Dermot Blain with 2,568,000. Day 6 played down to the final table, and with nine players left, it was Claudio Rinaldi who moved all-in with ah qc and Carlsson who called with pocket fours. The board of jc jh 9c ts jd gave Carlsson the full house and eliminated Rinaldi in ninth place with €63,500.

The final table was then set for April 21 as follows:

Seat 1: Claudio Piceci 4,460,000
Seat 2: Alexey Rybin 1,890,000
Seat 3: Atanas Gueorguiev 2,520,000
Seat 4: Jakob Carlsson 13,525,000
Seat 5: Guiseppe Diep 1,830,000
Seat 6: Liv Boeree 3,440,000
Seat 7: Toni Pettersson 5,035,000
Seat 8: Michael Piper 4,600,000

Play got underway, and Pettersson was quite the active player. He allowed Rybin to double through him, then got involved with Gueorguiev, who was all-in with pocket nines to the as qh of Pettersson. The board came 2h js qc jc kh, and two pair for Pettersson eliminated Atanas Gueorguiev in eighth place with €90,000.

Claudio Piceci was the next to get involved, though the hand started innocently with he and Carlsson going to a ad 6s kc flop. They checked to the qc turn, and more chips were put into the pot for the 3d on the river. Piceci then moved all-in with 6c 5c, but that lost to the A-2 of Carlsson, and Piceci left with €150,000 for the seventh place finish.

One of the short stacks during six-handed play was Guiseppe Diep, who pushed from the small blind with 9c 8c, but Piper called with pocket tens. The board produced 8h jc 2h 2c 6h, which wasn’t enough to save Diep, who left in sixth place with €210,000.

Alexey Rybin started off with a nice double-up but needed to do it again. He got involved with Carlsson to see a 2d th 8d flop, at which point, Carlsson bet and Rybin check-raised all-in with ah tc against the jacks of his opponent. A qs turn card and 5h river card ended it for Rybin, who left with €270,000 for fifth place.

Michael Piper was the next to move, and he got into a preflop raising war with Carlsson that led Piper to move all-in with qh th for a big stack of 4,695,000 chips. Carlsson called with ac kh, and the board came 2s 2c ks 4h 2h to end Piper’s run in fourth place, for which he was awarded €345,000.

Three-handed play started with Carlsson holding a monster chip lead, but the double-ups were aplenty and Carlsson took a hit to his stack through it all. Ultimately, Pettersson was the one to be at risk for the last time. He went to see a flop with Boeree, and it came 4s kd 3s at which point some raising prompted Boeree to move all-in with pocket threes. Pettersson called for the remainder of his chips with kh qd, and the top pair didn’t improve on the ad turn or 6h river. Toni Pettersson left in third place with €420,000.

Heads-up play then began as follows:

Liv Boeree 23,215,000
Jakob Carlsson 14,065,000

Carlsson came back from the deficit to climb into the chip lead, but several big hands for Boeree put her back in control. With 28 million in front of Boeree and 9 million for Carlsson, a dinner break broke the action for an hour. Upon their return, it didn’t take long for Carlsson to make his final push for 6.35 million chips holding ah 6d. Boeree called with pocket fives, and the board came td ks 8s 7s jc, and that was it for Jakob Carlsson, who took home €750,000 for the second place finish.

Liv Boeree became the third woman to ever take down a EPT Main Event, and she was awarded a PokerStars trophy and €1,250,000 in cash for the accomplishment.
