Piasecki may well be new to playing live poker, having only played “a few” €1,000 events, but he says he’s warming up to playing live. Given that he’s guaranteed himself at least €65,450 here in Sanremo, that should come as little surprise. He certainly seems a man of understatement, admitting that poker was his only way of making money but drawing the line at calling himself a professional player. Piasecki currently lives with his parents but said that situation is likely to change following this deep run. “The money I win here tomorrow, it will help me to stand on my own feet,” said Piasecki, who comes into the final table fifth in chips.
