On Saturday the 24th at “The Casino” at Portomaso on the Island of Malta the 2011 WSOP November Niner Matt Giannetti took the WPT Crown and $273,200. He was heads-up against the very aggressive Cecilia Pescaglini before they pushed their poker chips all in on the flop. Cecilia was holding the top pair while Matt had an open-ended straight draw. The turn gave him his straight and the river was no help to Cecilia and she was eliminated in second place, giving Matt Giannetti the WPT win.
Now we’ll just wait to see how he does on the World’s biggest poker stage — the World Series of Poker Main Event Final Table. We’re keeping our eyes on you Matt. Good luck and congratulations on your win on the beautiful Island of Malta.
