€5,300 EPT Main Event

Seat 4: Symeon Alexandridis, 37, Athens, Greece – 4,655,000

Symeon Alexandridis

Calling himself a poker semi-pro, Symeon Alexandridis is guaranteed a breakthrough result thanks to the deep run here at EPT Prague. The 37-year-old from Athens had been cashing mostly smaller events, with his previous career-best score worth €19,806.

That payout came two months ago at WSOP Circuit at the King’s Rozvadov, where he finished second in a 5-Card PLO event. Alexandridis revealed that he’s a versatile player who enjoys most mixed games, especially all forms of omaha. He is mainly a live player and prefers tournament fields, but he is no stranger to omaha cash game tables.

While online sessions are featured in Alexandridis’ poker routine only rarely, he does like to spend time sitting at a computer. “I’m a gamer. You can write that,” he said, mentioning the Age of Empires among his hobbies.
