Scene set for IPT Venice

It's been known as the City of Bridges, the City of Water, and even the City of Light. Now Venice, for a few days at least, can be called the City of Poker, as the PokerStars Italian Poker Tour begins the second leg of its debut season.

The first IPT event in San Remo was a huge hit, with banker Stefano Puccilli walking off with the first prize of €120,000 after a punishing 14-hour final table. Well over 100 players will head to beautiful Venice to play today's (Thursday) and tomorrow's day one flights, with a day 2 on Saturday and the final on Sunday.

While some will be coughing up the €2,000 + 200 to play at Venice's Casino Ca'Vendramin, many more players have secured their seats by qualifying on PokerStars.

They'll be up against some of the biggest names in the game, including Team PokerStars Pros Dario Minieri, Marcel Luske, Johnny Lodden, Vanessa Rousso and Chad Brown. Also around the felt will be members of Team PokerStars: Italy - Filippo Candio, Simone Ruggeri , Pierpaolo Fabretti, Nicola Fedeli and Elena Ichim.

If you'd like to find out more, please keep an eye on our IPT website, available here in English, and over here in Italian.

Ciao!
