Roberto Romanello had won the EPT Prag 2010, followed by a victory at WPT Bratislava in 2011.

Simon Lofberg denies Online Legend Andreas “skjervoy” Torbergsen his first bracelet
But this was not the only bracelet to be played out last night at GG Network. Next up was Event #40: $2,500 Pot Limit Omaha, which brought the best PLO players in the world to the virtual felt at GGPoker.
532 entries filled the prize pool with a whopping $1,263,500 and $224,493 were up top. 71 places were paid and many big names such as Mike McDonald, Dario Sammartino, Ami Barer, Gianluca Speranza and Joao Viera cashed.
The two biggest names on the final table were certainly Norwegian high stakes and Full Tilt Poker legend Andreas “skjervoy” Torbergsen and King’s Casino owner Leon Tsoukernik, who plays the highest stakes in the world.
Both of them made it to the Top 4 and the bracelet was in their grasp, but Leon then busted in 4th plcae for $88,141.76, while “skjervoy” went all the way to Heads-Up play.
The Heads-Up was a Scandinavian affair as Tobergsen competed with Swede Simon Lofberg for the bracelet. The latter had a slight chiplead to begin with, but “skjervoy” soon got back to even.
Then a massive cooler emerged, when both players flopped the straight with Tobergsen having the idiot end of it.
This huge pot gave Lofberg a decisive chiplead and he soon after finsihed it off to secure his first bracelet and the $224,493 first place prize.
