€5,250 Championship Main Event

And That's a Christmas Wrap

Salvation for the winner! Salvatore Bonavena is EPT Prague Champion
So it's all over and an historic day for Italian poker, as they claim their very first-ever EPT title with Salvatore Bonavena becoming the recipient of the second EPT Prague title and €774,000 for his first-place finish defeating 569 other players.

It's no fluke either, as he had won €100,000 at an event in Venice a few weeks ago, though he still declares himself to be just an amateur player.

And well done to Massimo Di Cicco, who put in an amazing laddering performance and took the chip lead briefly while heads up.

From all of us here in Prague, thanks for tuning in for the last EPT of the year. The next place the tour heads is a slight detour from Europe, across the Atlantic to the Atlantis Casino in the Bahamas for the PCA.

Good night and good luck!
