"Eriknitro" takes down CNP Main Event!

The Spanish tournament speaks Italian thanks to "Eriknitro" who manages to maximize his Day2 chip leading to getting the trophy after over 10 hours of play on this final day.

The Italian has performed really well throughout all day and administrated his stack in a fantastic way, which is not something given for granted despite the initial advantage.

Here's what he told us after the winning:

"I was coming from a bad run and initially I didn't believe in it so much, the feeling was that in the end, it could all go wrong as usual. Instead, after last night's exploit on Day 2, today I managed to give it my all, handling all the tournament phases in the best possible way.

At the start of the final day, I tried to exploit my stack, putting pressure at the right moments. At the beginning of the final table instead, I preferred to wait a bit before pushing, but when you play well sooner or later your moment comes and so it was. I had a cooler in my favour with Q-Q vs J-J and from that moment on I started to attack more, always maintaining a fairly solid lead.

If I can give a message to all players going through bad times it is to never give up, because bad times are part of the game. You must always remain calm and patient without exaggerating because the results will come, so far.

The heads-up? Yesterday I managed to accumulate the stack I came up with today against him.

He confessed me that he suffered a lot my game and having the chance to take revenge right at the most important moment seemed to be a sign of destiny. In the end, he didn't even play badly, but I had a big lead and after losing the first showdown despite starting ahead, I managed to close the match in the second one and now I enjoy this trophy!"

Here's the final ranking:

🥇“Eriknitro” €79,500 (+ WSOPE ME ticket)

🥈“Die Viehper” €44.000 (+ WSOPE ME ticket)

🥉 Danas Dambrauskas €30.500 (+ WSOPE ME ticket)
