Originally from Calabria, Italian poker pro Raffaele Sorrentino relocated to Malta so that he could continue crushing the virtual realm in the shared liquidity pool. He's known as "1mDonuts" on PokerStars, and his packed online résumé includes both second and third place in a Sunday 500 and a final table in a Sunday Million. However, Sorrentino's biggest online score came during his trip to EPT13 Prague. It started with his bustout in a €500 Turbo tournament. Sorrentino then went up to his room, registered in to the Thursday Thrill, and eventually ended up winning it for $106,166. The 37-year-old has been successful on the live scene, too. He has amassed over $400k in cashes, good for 83rd place on the Italian all-time money list. Sorrentino's biggest payday was €102,000 for first place in the EPT13 Barcelona €1k Turbo Event. Sorrentino went also deep in the EPT11 London Main Event, falling just shy of the star-studded final table when. He was forcted to leave in 10th place after a cruel knock out by the eventual champion Sebastian Pauli. Sorrentino held queens back then, and had flopped the top set while Pauli was drawing for a nut-flush. A third spade card on the river left Sorrentino collecting a receipt for a £33,500 reward.
