Mustapha Kanit is sixth on the Italian all time money list and will start sixth in chips. The online and cash game grinder has relocated to Malta a few years ago and has had a stellar start to this year.
At the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure in January 2014 he finished 4th in the $25,500 + $500 High Roller for a career best payday of $ 492,600. Only two weeks later he won two rings at the 2014 Aussie Millions Poker Championship for a combined score of more than $260,000.
In 2011, Kanit had two further big scores with a win in the €2,000 + €200 IPT Nova Gorica 2 Main Event for €200,000 and a sixth place finish in the Partouche Poker Tour Cannes Main Event for €190,000.
