The Big Wrap PLO Main Event of The Big Wrap PLO series was a grand success and attracted 516 entries (412 unique and 104 re-entries). Outlasting the massive field to capture his career-first live title was Spain’s Lautaro Valentino Guerra Cabrerizo (cover image) who also pocketed his best-live score of €209,221 in the process!
