Ilios "ILIOS72" Kamatakis is a Greek professional poker player who originally started out as a professional Blackjack player. After discovering online poker in 2006 he quickly found out that he was better off leaving Blackjack behind and pursue poker full time.
His first game of choice was no limit hold'em, which he played on Partypoker. After a few succesful cash game years playing $3/6-$25/50 he decided that the easy money was gone and made the switch to play MTT.
Although tournaments turned out to be a good decision for Ilios economically ($300k+), he feels that his time had been better spent by continuing to play cash games improve on his own game. Something he today does succesfully by regularly facing the toughest opponents on Pokerstars.
Before becoming a professional poker player Ilios got a degree in civil engineering and completed postgraduate studies in the US.
