November 11th 2009 – In his biggest live win to date RedKings Finnish Qualifier Ville Salmi scooped €100,000 by winning Estoril Live in Portugal this week.

Playing great poker throughout the Tournament Ville just let his cards do the talking especially dominating the final sessions with strong play and some aggressive Finnish poker play.

“It was a tough Final Table but I felt confident. The cards did come my way and I’m very happy now,” commented Ville after the win finally sank in.

The most important hand of the day came when Ville was heads up against his fellow Finnish player Teemu Kangasvieri, both were all-in and Ville held 99 vs Saperes Q9. The table didn’t show any Queens which gave Ville the pot and the title!

Also delighted with this win are RedKings Poker, the room where Ville managed to qualify for Estoril Live. Commented Jerry Land, Live Events Manager at RedKings

“As Team RedKings has evolved to one of the biggest and best teams on the tour many players want to join. A great way to make yourself known to us is by playing in our many Live Event qualifiers and then doing what Ville did , doing really well in  a live tournament ! Hopefully we will see Ville in the RedKings shirt again soon . We all congratulate him. ”

Ville now goes back to Finland to celebrate and you will soon be able to read an interview with him at the RedKings blog.
