Sorel MizziAlthough players dressed for the cold last week, high up in the snow-covered Austrian Alps, for the PokerStars European Poker Tour Snowfest, there was one player who just couldn’t run any hotter. Recent Card Player Europe cover star Sorel Mizzi didn’t have much luck in the main event, which was won in the end by Allan Baekke, but the side events were very good to him.

First he took down the €1,000 + €100 buy-in no-limit hold’em freezeout for €70,000 and then went straight on to demolish the field of the €500 + €50 buy-in no-limit hold’em plus one rebuy event for an amount yet to be confirmed, but what is said to be around €34,000.

Mizzi recently told us he is aiming for Card Player’s Player of the Year (POY) award, and with the results the Canadian pro has been getting, this race will definitely be one to watch. Previous to Snowfest, Mizzi was in 10th place in the POY rankings with 2,150 points.

So far this year, the Betfair pro has placed 13th in the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure $5,000 buy-in no-limit hold’em event for $16,295 and fifth in the heads-up event for $17,600. He finished January off by moving on to Australia for the Aussie Millions main event where he came third for $638,004. Mizzi followed this up in February with a second at the L.A. Poker Classic’s $500 buy-in double stack event ($20,530) and sixth in the Classic’s $1,000 buy-in hold’em event ($9,210).

March looks to be an extremely interesting month with the young pro already bagging a first place at the Wynn Classic $2,000 buy-in no-limit hold’em event for $85,147 and a fifth place there also in the $1,500 buy-in no-limit hold’em event for $10,389.

With his latest side event celebrations at the Snowfest, Mizzi is in good form as he travels to Dublin, Ireland for the Irish Open, which is coming up this week. Whatever happens it’s a good start to a year which holds so much more in store for poker lovers.
