Poker Around the World


November Niner Takes Down World Poker Tour Malta Main Event

It has been quite the year for 26-year old Matt Giannetti, not only has he reached the delayed final table of the World Series of Poker Main Event, but over the weekend he also took down the inaugural World Poker Tour Malta Main Event.

Giannetti beat out a strong field of 240 players securing himself an impressive $273,200 first-place prize, the WPT Champions Cup, and entry into the season X finale, the $25,500 WPT World Championship.

The final hand came when Pescaglini called Giannetti’s all in with Q 10 on a 10 8 2 board. Giannetti held 9 7 for the open-ended straight draw and did not have to wait too long as the J fell on the turn. He had to swerve a 9 on the river to stay ahead and he did as it fell the 2.

The Italian had to settle for $159,412 for her second-place finish. After his win, Giannetti tweeted, “God damn, I am a lucksack, so mad how I played, way too much run good expended… Happy I won but feel like I don’t deserve it.”

Wonder if he will feel the same way in November on the WSOP final table.

Here are the results and payouts:

1. Matt Giannetti — $273,200
2. Cecilia Pescaglini — $159,412
3. Filippo Bianchini — $104,936
4. Simon Trumper — $72,985
5. Tristan Clemencon — $54,381
6. Fabien Sartoris — $41,977
