Italian Sergio Castelluccio is a musician and former music teacher. He took up poker four years ago, saying “I’ve always had a passion for games, like chess – also and too many video games!” His best live result was winning PokerStars’ Italian Poker Tour San Remo Main Event in August 2010 for €200,000. He also finished 16th here in Monaco at the EPT Grand Final three years ago for €64,000 – one of his first ever live events. He’s an EPT regular but this is his first EPT final table. On the Italian Poker Tour, he’s made two finals as well as his IPT San Remo victory, plus three further cashes. He plays a lot online but mainly cash games “apart from the Sunday majors when I’m at home”.
