🇷🇴 Stefan Alexandru Drusca leads EPM Day2

Entries 2285 /left 24

It has to be admitted, it was not easy to get through the guaranteed this Easter week, and many, on the eve, thought the feat was impossible.

We, on the other hand, always believed in it, against all odds, because the affection and gratitude you always showed us could not be just an illusion, and so it was.

Two thousand, two hundred and eighty-five entrants when everyone is on holiday, or almost, means that in a way this is not just a poker tournament. It means that, besides the game that we love so much, there is something that goes beyond and that, at least from our point of view, gives meaning to what we do.

Something that pushes us to always do better and accept new challenges. Thank you.

Stefano Alexandru Drusca

Romanian domination

And now let's talk a little about the tournament itself because, in the King's Resort poker room, the 230 contenders fought it out for twelve hours until there were only 24 left.

It was a battle that, for some, was a walkover right from the start, while for others, like Francesco Saverio Sanita, the last Italian among the three qualifiers, it was a battle of nerves played to the sound of folds.

🇷🇴 STEFAN ALEXANDRU DRUSCA put on the turbo right from the start, constantly remaining with a stack of around, or over, 100 big blinds, one of the few to always have sufficient room to maneuver and therefore able to put constant pressure on his opponents, risking the right amount.

Right behind him, we find the Swiss Theodor Biert at 17,385,000, whose path was not as linear as that of the Romanian. For him, the decisive leap came when he found himself down pre-flop with A-Q against Q-Q: an Ace on the turn triggered the apotheosis, relegating his opponent to a premature run to the coffers to collect the prize.

Third place for the Croatian 🇭🇷 ANDELKO METER 11,125,000, fourth place for another Swiss, 🇨🇭 "MED "1 (1,000,000), and fifth for 🇷🇴 IULIAN COSTEL STRUGARU 9,400,000, also often leading the table with a stack unmatched by his opponents.

Few but good

As mentioned earlier, three Italians qualified for Day2: 🇮🇹 LEONARDO SABATINO (6,290,000)

🇮🇹 MARADONA ABAZ (4,720,000) and 🇮🇹 FRANCESCO SAVERIO SANITA (2,885,000).

Francesco Saverio Sanita

Among the Italian notables, no glory for Nicola Angelini, Luca Stevanato, and Federico Privitera, who tried to the last to honor the cause in this remote town in the Czech Republic, did not make it.

Particular mention to Francesco Saverio Sanità clung on to the tournament tooth and nail, despite a stack that not infrequently dropped below 10 blinds.

In general, however, it was always the Germans who led the way with 7 qualifiers for Day 2 and a great chance of bringing at least one bishop to the final table.
