Robin Ylitalo won the EPT London Main Event this year for £560,980. He has recently sat down at the tables here at Sanremo and ordered a salami sandwich. It arrived at a cost of €10.
“Do you have change?” Ylitalo asked and pulled out a €500 note from a balled wad of notes in his pocket. The waiter went off in search of change but returned several minutes later with the same large denomination note unable to break it for him. It took another player to come to the rescue.
