The 2011 EPT San Remo final table is set with 5 different countries represented.  Four players come to us from Italy.

The chip leader is 24-year-old Rupert Elder who comes to us from the United Kingdom. 

Elder is a former Economics student at Warwick University and now professional poker player, has been playing the game for several years. He mostly plays a mixture of online $2-4, $3-6 and $5-10 NLHE cash games though he switches across to tournaments on Sunday nights.

Max Heinzelmann, the 20-year-old from Germany, was runner-up at EPT Berlin a few weeks ago and could better that €500,000 win.  His online winnings now total more than $450,000.  He was the second biggest chip holder. 

Roberto Spada, 36, comes from Italy.  This is his first live tournament.

Costantino Russo is another Italian and the 4th biggest chip holder.
