PokerStars created the Italian Poker Tour by working with their own poker pro, Luca Pagano, and Federpoker. The events have been well thought out and the final table of each Italian Poker Tour event will be aired on Italia 1 on PokerMania for fans to enjoy.

PokerStars gave away a good deal of San Remo packages this past weekend so online players could enjoy a trip to San Remo to participate this week.

He stated: “PokerStars is really happy with the developments in live and online poker in Italy. The great success has been registered on the PokerStars. It website and the record breaking turnout for the San Remo leg of the PokerStars Season 5 EPT makes us hopeful that the PokerStars Italian Poker Tour will arouse huge interest in Italy and all over Europe.”
