Global Poker Masters, Finals: Italy screwed Russia
In defiance of all the predictions Team Italy has won the first Global Poker Masters cup, becoming the strongest poker team in the world. And in the Finals they were competing with Russia, not with the USA or Canada.
We wrote earlier about how the Day 1 of the team championship went on. Americans advanced straight to the semi-finals with confidence, British went off the distance and Ukrainian worked poker miracles.
The second day included few stages:
- first – heads up matches, team vs. team (one country goes busted);
- second – 6-max Sit-and-Go (two best teams go through to the finals);
- third – finals, five simultaneously played heads ups (the game continues up to three winnings).
