Daniele “Jiizuke” di Mauro was one of the most touted prospects to come out the Challenger scene for a long while. His mechanical prowess coupled with his infectious smiles and on-stage hollering made him one of the most hyped up-and-comers. When his time came in the 2018 EU LCS Spring Split he delivered on his promise in spades.
Jiizuke put together a highlight reel for the ages and snatched up Rookie of the Split in the process. For all of the good times, the young mid laner got his first taste of bitter defeat in the playoff semifinals, but is looking to bounce back in a big way this summer. If he continues to build up his arsenal, we’ll be seeing his smile a lot more over the coming years.
