Main Event

Four Team Members at One Table

Luca Pagano

Over at Table 17, there are currently four members of Team PokerStars seated. Three of them — Chris Moneymaker, Salvatore Bonavena and Luca Pagano — are members of Team PokerStars Pro, while Luca Moschitta is a member of Team Online.

The Team Online member, Moschitta, has two Main Event cashes on the European Poker Tour; one from EPT Deauville in 2010, and one from EPT Sanremo in 2011. In total, he's earned €20,200 from those two cashes.

Moneymaker also has two EPT cashes on record, but they're worth a little more. In 2007, he took 17th at EPT London for £12,230, then in 2001, he placed 11th in the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure for $130,000.

Bonavena is the only one of the four with an EPT title, coming back in 2008 when he won EPT Prague for €774,000. He's also come 11th in the EPT Grand Final in 2010 for €80,000, 38th in EPT London in 2010 for £17,000, 17th in EPT Prague in 2010 for €15,000 and 29th in EPT London in 2011 for £16,000.

Last, but not least, is Pagano. Although he hasn't won an EPT event, Pagano has smoked the EPT for over $1.4 million in winnings. He's cashed in 20 different Main Events and has gone on to make the final table seven of those times. His largest score was at the EPT Grand Final in 2008 when he took sixth for €337,000.

Below are their current chip counts, and we'll be keeping a close eye on this table all day long.
