🇮🇹Alessio Albore takes down IPO Sanremo 2024!

Entries 3828

The Main Event of the Sanremo 2024 IPO, the edition with the highest number of entrants since its inception, closed with Alessio Albore's victory.

It was a tournament that ended in a rather curious way, given that at three left, the second and third preferred to leave the trophy and first prize to the chip leader, splitting the remaining part of the prize pool. The reason? The abysmal difference in chips (130BB against 10BB each of the pursuers).

To relive every moment of the final table, click below, while scrolling through the post you can retrace the highlights, elimination by elimination.

Alessandro Orsi is the eighth classified

Blinds 250K/500K, ante 500K

Alessio Albore opened from UTG with A ♠️ K♠️(stack 48M), and Ale Orsi from SB found himself with 7♠️ 7♦️ and decided to go all-in on the chip leader but found the snap call.

BOARD: 5♥️ 5♠️ J♠️ A♣️ Q♦️

Alessandro Orsi, the undisputed protagonist for all three previous Days, is the first to go out and has to settle for a €19,370 prize, while Albore consolidates his chip lead at the table.

Mario Llapi ended up in 7th place

Blinds 250K/500K, ante 500K

The short-stack war is resolved with a coin-flip in favour of Gouzil Hervé, who goes all-in with 4♥️ 4♣️ from BTN finding Llapi's snap call with A♠️ 10♣️ (both have about 10bb, with Hervé having a little more).

BOARD: J♠️ 4♦️ 2♣️ 9♦️ Q♣️

The 4 on the flop is almost a sentence for Llapi, who is already drawing dead on the turn. The good Marione is eliminated in 7th position for €25,200, while his opponent comes back to breathe with over 20x on the 6-handed.

Valerio Marino out in 6th position

Blinds 300K/600K, ante 600K

Dynamic CO vs SB with Valerio Marino pushing his 13x with A♦️ Q♥️ finding Francesco De Rose's re-shove with J-J.

BOARD: 9♥️ 9♦️ J♣️ 10♥️ 8 ♣️

Valerio Marino is the 6th place finisher and cashes for €42,500. Here is the stack situation at the moment:

Alessio 93M (154BB)

Giancarlo 20M (33BB)

Francis 19M (33B)

Hervé 15M (24BB)

Giulio 6.7M (11BB)

Giulio Colazzo comes out in 5th place

Blinds 300K/600K, ante 600K

Giulio Colazzo from BTN goes directly all-in for 13M with K♦️ Q♠️ but from SB Alessio Albore pins A♠️ Q♥️ and re-shares.

BOARD: J♦️ 6♣️ 2♦️ 8♣️ 2♠️

Giulio Colazzo cashes the €57,500 reserved for 5th place while Alessio Albore takes an even bigger lead over his opponents.

Giancarlo Del Barone exits in 4th place

Blinds 400K/800K, ante 800K

A resounding denouement sees Giancarlo Del Barone go all-in from UTG in 4-handed with K♣️ 7♣️ (6.7M stack), BTN passes, and Francesco De Rose with Q♠️ Q♦️ simply flats despite having only 11M on his side. In contrast, Alessio Albore from BB with A♥️ K♠️ goes all-in (he is the tournament chip leader with over 118BB), and Francesco De Rose resoundingly passes.

BOARD: 9♠️ 4 ♥️ 2 ♠️ 10♠️ 2♣️

Alessio Albore has almost all the chips at the table (over 130BB), while his opponents are left with 10 BB each.

Alessio Albore wins the IPO Sanremo 2024 Main Event!
