Demetrio Caminita

Demetrio Caminita may be the only player who needed to cross the sea to arrive at EPT Prague. The 27-year-old Sicilian player won't regret making the trip as Caminita's Main Event progress has been near perfect.

He bagged an above-average stack after each of the first three days before parking in the middle of the pack with 16 players left. Short-stacked on the final table at one point, Caminita made a few moves to catapult his way back to calm waters and bring nearly 40 big blinds into the last day.

While this is arguably the biggest stage he's ever played at, Caminita seems to be ready to roll. He picked up poker nearly a decade ago and made a professional career out of it. "I play the high stakes," he said, claiming he's used to competing in the €5,000 and €10,000 buy-in fields.

It's primarily online tournaments where Caminita found his bread and butter. And while poker occupies most of his time, there are other things he enjoys, too. "I like cars, and I like [going to a] gym," he said.
