Actor in Big Money Again

After making it big as an actor in network TV show ‘EastEnders’, Michael Greco has now turned professional gambler. Winning a prestigious leg of a British poker tournament, Greco walked away with more than $100,000. This was witnessed at the third round of popular British tournament the ‘Grosvenor Poker Tour’ held in Cardiff.

This was an event of 4 days with over 300 big names. BBC’s ‘Beppe di Marco’ is reportedly very happy with his win. After starting his career with a minor win at Albert Square, Greco has since worked on his skills, finally getting the big prize at such a prestigious event. The final of the competition will be held at November which is an eagerly awaited affair. Greco’s other prize after beating his two fellow poker players Hoss Parhizkar and Roberto Romanello is a Tutima watch.

Said tour manager Jonathan Raab, “Michael was a worthy winner. We look forward to him defending his title in Manchester.”
EastEnders was a show broadcast on BBC. Now Greco will be back on TV with this event being shown later in the year on Channel 4. This is arguably the height of his poker career.
