Stefano Memoli

 



Name: Stefano Memoli
Age: 29
Country: Italy, Milano
What Deck are you playing today? Pure Zoodiac
Any awesome tech cards you want to let the world know about? Pure Zoodiac, it’s nothing special. My secret tech is good advice from a BIG person that couldn’t play today.
Personal highlight of YCS Prague? I made a bet with a friend of mine. If he will arrive at the end of the tournament we will eat the whole pot of pasta directly from the cooking point. We want to “stirare”, which means eat until we die.
Final words? Thanks to my BIG friend and to anyone who believes in me.

 


Themis
