Biography[edit]

MaFia is an Australian Zerg player living in Sydney. StarCraft II is his first competitive PC game but he has a strong history in strategic card games such as poker and Magic: The Gathering. He is known in the Australian scene for his motivation to improve, mass laddering, and strong decision making. He also has historically stronger results at LAN than in online tournaments.

As mentioned, MaFia had a history of competitive Magic: the Gathering where he won two Australian national tournaments. After Magic: the Gathering he turned his attention towards playing poker, placing third in an AAPT in Sydney shortly after taking it up and winning over $320,000. He is still a successful poker player and uses it to earn cash while continuing to play SC2 competitively.

MaFia was a founding member of Xeria Gaming, a SEA based Gaming organization which launch in August 2011 along with his team mates, Light, iaguz and JazBas

On the 2nd of June Mafia was announced as the first member of Team Immunity's new Starcraft II Team[2]

As mentioned, MaFia has no prior gaming history. So he got to where he is now through the SEA scene by mass laddering to make up for his lack of mechanics. He won a few minor online events but his major winnings have come from live events.
