Vladimir Geshkenbein wins EPT Snowfest

You might think the idea of staging a major poker tournament in an Alpine ski resort would detract somewhat from the real business at hand. With ski slopes just a short walk away, and with winter sports leaflets glossily presented to every hotel guest, you would be forgiven for thinking that the Alp...more

Liv Boeree takes EPT San Remo title
