Max Pescatori, EPT San Remo - Day 1b, European Poker Tour Season 4

Making a rare appearance at an EPT event, Max Pescatori is an icon to those who follow Italian poker.

After playing in relative obscurity for many years, he busted onto the poker scene in 2006 by winning his first Max Pescatori's good buddy Todd Brunson.

Are you an inspiration to young Italian poker players?

Yeah; it's amazing. People are so grateful. I even get pros coming up to me and telling me they are really happy for my success. I had this one guy come up to me and tell me that when his son can't sleep he tells him my story and how I came to be successful.

I was like, "Come on man..." but he responded by saying "No, I'm serious."

It's unbelievable. I definitely have one of the best jobs in the world and I wouldn't trade it for anything. (Laughs) By making me talk about it you've made me forget I have a short stack.

Well we'd better let you get back to that short stack, Max. Thanks so much for your time and best of luck in the tournament.

Thank you.


Pescatori is an amazing ambassador for Italian poker and although he has his work cut out for him, when he comes to play tomorrow there would be no better person to take down the first major Italian tournament. We here at wish Pescatori the best of luck as he attempts to turn his short stack into a monster tomorrow.
