Antonio Greco has won the Alliance Poker Tour 2014, hosted in the Portomaso Casino in Malta. Greco beat Luigi Cocita heads up for the title, but also beat another 225 participants in the tournament.

Along with the amazing castle of chips and a beautiful trophy from Mdina Glass, Greco also took home the first prize after making a deal 5-handed. The players do not wish to have the prizes disclosed however, which we have chosen to respect.

The winning hand was Queen Diamonds9 Diamonds, which hit a pair of queens on the flop and ensured the victory for Greco. Congratulations once again with the victory!
