Sorel Mizzi is one of the world’s best tournament players, however, a somewhat chequered past has meant he’s often criticised in the poker world.
Indeed, having been involved in various incidents Sorel has been almost shunned by many of the game’s top online players. However, not wanting to slip into obscurity like other alleged sinners, Sorel has worked hard to mend his reputation and prove that he not only belongs at the top of the game but that he can be a role model for others. That determination to redeem himself has led to the creation of his latest blog post: The Past, Present and Future.Written as a way of explaining and expressing himself, the blog details his early experiences and how they shaped his approach to life. Loathing himself and the negative press he received for a number of years, Sorel began to use his past to reshape his values and allow himself to “experience the gift of forgiveness”.While Sorel may still have a way to go in some people’s eyes, the piece certainly helps to further repair his reputation. Indeed, with the likes of Daniel Negreanu showing their support for him it seems like he could be on his way to being fully accepted as one of the game’s best young players.
