Main Event

Seat 5: Maria Lampropoulos, 36, Argentina - 2,455,000

Maria Lampropoulos

If anyone is regularly cheering for Ivan Luca in the tournaments, it's Maria Lampropoulos who's been railing her boyfriend during many deep runs over the last months. This time, she'll only need to look left to see Luca but might not be interested in supporting him that much. The couple made the Eureka 6 Rozvadov final table and they'll be sitting next to each other on the feature table.

While Luca is currently one of the hottest players in the world, Lampropoulos also had a brilliant February at the poker tables. She cashed the EPT12 Dublin Main Event and then marched to the heads-up in the WPTN Brussels Main Event. Lampropoulos earned €68,200 for the second place - the biggest payday of her career. Now she has a chance to better her largest cash twice in less than two weeks with another top two finish. The Argentinian couple is pretty much on the road all the time but they have plans to settle in London, trying to avoid flying overseas back and forth.
