What did Luigi say?
With the availability and kindness that distinguish him, Luigi told us his final table and the hand that put him down the road to victory:
“I’ve always been a great chip leader, in the final table bubble I won a huge pot… I was opening all hands when I pin AA, shova a short 10x and then reshova even big blind for 40x, turn 99 and AK and get to the final table with half of the chips in play. So I had an easy life up to the head-up with ‘scout326’, who after losing the first two hands started to do the rest continuously “.
Luigi also explained that he has not yet played the one thousand euro tournament buy-in stable plant.
“I qualified for this tournament with a satellite, I play them very often. I only sign up directly for the thousandth biggest tournaments. ” But its natural habitat, judging by this beautiful result, is precisely in the high stakes.
