Titan Poker Signs Sorel ‘Imper1um’ MizziApril 30, 2010 9:30 am
Titan Poker have announced that Sorel ‘Imper1um’ Mizzi is the latest pro to join the site and will now be taking his place amongst the other members of Team Titan.
The 24 year-old Canadian pro is known as a tournament specialist and has an impressive record in the field, with over $1 million in online tournament winnings and live tournament cashes exceeding $2.5 million.
In the online arena, Mizzi’s successes include winning the PokerStars’ Sunday Warm-Up for $80,000, and winning two FTOPS tournaments for $90,384 and $40,972.
Away from the virtual felts, Mizzi has had a string of impressive results, including finishing third at the 2007 Irish Poker Open for $280,284, finishing 15th at the WPT Fifth Annual Five Star World Poker Classic for $155,000, a third place finish at the 2008 WSOP Europe $5K Pot Limit Omaha event for $240,000, and a runner-up position at the 2009 WSOP $5K Pot Limit Omaha event for $253,000.
2010 is proving no less lucrative for the Canadian poker prodigy, and he has already picked up $659,000 for finishing third at the Aussie Millions Poker Championship, as well as winning the EPT Snowfest for $95,000 and the Borgata Spring Poker Open for $170,000.
Despite his successes, Sorel Mizzi is not without controversy and is currently banned from playing at Full Tilt Poker, after he took over his friend Chris Vaughn’s account, who at the time was in the middle of playing a tournament. Mizzi won the tournament but the duo were later disqualified from the event and Vaughn subsequently lost his job as Managing Editor of Bluff Magazine.
Previously a sponsored member of Team Betfair, Mizzi is now looking forward to his new home at Titan Poker, and for all those budding poker players looking to emulate his success, he offers the following advice:
“Play within your bankroll. Keep detailed statistics of what games you’re making most money from and focus playing what you’re best at. Find a mentor whose game you respect and that IS where you want to BE.”
