The European Poker Tour(EPT) 10 Sanremo Main Event and High Rollers event crowned two familiar poker faces as champs with Vicky Coren-Mitchell taking the ME and Ole Schemion taking down the HR Event. Vicky also wrote a page in EPT history as she became the first ever two-time EPT Main Event Champion. Way back in Season 3, she won the EPT London ME and now she repeated her lady-magic at Sanremo to take down two EPT Titles. 

Ole Schemion, in the €10,300 high rollers event conquered a familiar field including high rollers tourney regs like Griffin Benger and Max Greenwood to win the title and the top prize of €265,000. Other notable pros on this 8-handed FT included Mustapha Kunit and Tamer Kamel. Greenwood was the one whom Schemion defeated in heads up play to claim the title and also gain a suitable lead in the EPT 10 Player of the Year race. 

In the Main Event, the lady from United Kingdom, Vicky conquered the European heavy final table defeating Giacomo Fundaro in heads up battle. She topped a field of 556 players and won €476,100, the EPT 10 Sanremo Trophy, a €5,000 SLYDE watch and also a slice of EPT history.
