Luca Fiorini used to run a franchise chain of estate agents in Rome but gave it up to focus on poker. He has been playing poker seriously for around four years now. He only ever plays tournaments, travelling once a month to destinations around his native Italy including Sanremo. He also plays online a lot where his best result was finishing second in a PokerStars.it Sunday Special for €20,000. He came to Barcelona without his girlfriend Romana because he says he needs to concentrate but joked: “If I win, we’ll get married, buy a house and have children. Not if I come second though!” Fiorini won his seat to Barcelona on PokerStars.it.
