Former East Enders soap star scoops £100,000 poker win

Michael Greco, is a former actor in the BBC soap ‘East Enders’, who left the soap claiming he wanted to work in theatre. Very soon after, he became a professional gambler. Whilst acting in East Enders, he played the part of Beppe di Marco, and was once voted the ‘sexiest male soap star ever’.

It would seem that his career change to professional gambling is paying off. Greco is in the money today after winning the regional leg of a British national poker competition.

He walked away with £100,000 following the climax of the third round of the Grosvenor Poker Tour in Cardiff during the early hours of the morning. He triumphed in a field of more than 300 players during four days of competition.

Although he has previously had minor successes in celebrity poker events, this was his first win in a recognised professional poker event.

The competition’s tour manager, said: “After a long, hard-fought poker session, Michael was a worthy winner. He has shown that he has what it takes to go all the way in this game and we look forward to him defending his title in Manchester.”
