Spampinato hails from Italy but now lives with his wife Daniela in Malta. He works full-time as a sports trader plays poker for fun; he won his seat for the Main Event in a €500 live satellite at Portomaso Casino.

Online, he plays MTT and has had some good results, including winnng the Big $55 two years ago for $17k. The €125,660 he’s now guaranteed for making the final 6 table is ten times his total live tournament winnings to date. Because of his work, he can't make many poker plans so thinks it’s unlikely he’ll be able to go to EPT Prague. However if he wins, he says he and Daniela will use the money to buy a home and start planning a family.

Bilic has reached the the final table of the EPT Malta Main Event as the chip leader. With $91,704 in total live tournament winnings, the 26-year-old is already ranked #4 in the Bosnia & Herzegovina all time money list but his live achievements pale in comparison to his online results. PocketFives has Bilic ranked as his country’s #1 online tournament player with a string of amazing results on PokerStars and more than $2 million in lifetime cashes. His results include winning the Sunday 500 last year for nearly $80k, back-to-back wins in the Big $162, and winning the PokerStars Sunday 500 for $71,000 in March last year.

Now guaranteed at least €125,660 for making the final six, Alen Bilic has already exceeded his previous best live cash of €18,320 when he finished 69th at EPT Barcelona in August. Bilic’s other big live cashes have all come during World Series of Poker events including a deep run in the 2014 $3k NL event, finishing 15th for $19,547.

Bilic has been a poker pro since graduating in Business Management and Economics in 2010. He first start playing in online free-rolls but, after defeating a 7,000-strong field, started playing for real money (mainly heads-up Sit & Goes) while honing his knowledge via poker training sites and forums. He switched to MTTs in 2012.

It’s been another memorable trip to Malta for Jaroslaw Sikora. His first EPT Malta last March wasn’t planned at all as he was supposed to be on holiday in Thailand. However, unable to get a visa in time, he decided to check out the debut EPT Malta stop instead. Good decision! He came second in the IPT Main Event for €97,975 - just a day after celebrating his 27th birthday.

Since his return here for the EPT12 festival, Sikora has had some big online scores as well. Playing as "husajn54" on PokerStars, he notched up another second place finish, this time in the SCOOP €2k NLH event for $256k. His first EPT Main Event cash came in Barcelona and now he's now reached the final six with 2,455,000 in chips.
