Partypoker Ambassador, Anatoly “nl_profit” Filatov, wins the partypoker Million Germany High Roller, and fellow ambassador Roberto Romanello will arrive late at the World Series of Poker after tying the knot in Italy.

In March, partypoker hired the considerable talents of Anatoly ‘nl_profit’ Filatov to attract players from Siberia to Serbia, and it hasn’t taken him long to bag a title.

Filatov wins partypoker Million Germany HR; Romanello ties the knotFilatov was representing the brand at partypoker Million Germany when he won the €2,200 buy-in High Roller after a three-way chop with Andrew Haneberg and Aleksandar Tomovic. Filatov won the title and the €42,000 first prize when his T9 out flopped the pocket treys of his opponent.

The event attracted 100 entrants ensuring it matched the €200,000 Guarantee by the cent. The event was so popular the organisers had to open up an impromptu Day 3. The King’s Casino, Rozvadov, in the Czech Republic played host.

Filatov has won over $2.4m playing online tournaments on PokerStars ($1,854,566), Full Tilt ($351,232), partypoker ($122,714), iPoker ($79,952), and 888Poker ($51,381).

It is his third live tournament victory of his career. Highlights include a runner-up finish to Fabrice Soulier in a €10,300 buy-in High Roller at the 2014 European Poker Tour (EPT) in Vienna for $366,070. A victory at the $10,500 High Roller as part of the 2014 World Poker Tour (WPT) Merit Classic North Cyprus for $156,000. And a seventh place finish in the 2014 Asia Championship of Poker (ACOP) High Roller in Macau for $151,038.

Filatov has earned $1.4m in live tournament earnings.

Roberto Romanello a Little Late to the WSOP Party

Filatov’s stablemate Roberto Romanello is going to arrive in Las Vegas late, as his hunt for a place in the coveted Triple Crown continues, but there is a valid reason for his absence.

The Welsh Wizard is no longer an eligible bachelor after tying the knot with his long-time sweetheart Catrin in a ceremony that took place in Italy.

Romanello needs a WSOP bracelet to add to his EPT Prague and WPT Bratislava title so he can gain entry into the Triple Crown club. The Welsh All Time Live Tournament Money Earner has made the final table of six WSOP and WSOPE events but is yet to bring home the bracelet.

Maybe he will have more luck now he is a man of considerable responsibility and repute.

Other players that need a WSOP bracelet to join the Triple Crown are Mohsin Charania, Andrey Pateychuck, Moritz Kranich, Mike Watson, Niall Farrell, and Harrison Gimbel.
