WPT Merit Cyprus Classic'14 (Sep 1st - Sep 11th, 2014)
Congratulations on your win! Would you, please, shortly introduce yourself?
I am 24 years old player from St. Petersburg, Russia. This is my seventh visit to Merit Poker during one year, so as you see, I am a very frequent visitor. Apart from Merit, I have been to various tournaments in Europe, like EPT in Barcelona and Prague; participated in different poker events in Kiev, Minsk and Odessa. I went to Italy, too.
How long have you been playing poker?
I started playing online poker when I was 19. After having gained some experience, I moved on playing live games, too. Now it is like 50/50 – I did not leave the online poker, in fact I enjoy both types. My live poker career began with small poker tournaments held in the nearest to Russia countries.
What was your biggest win during these years?
My biggest wins were first place at the RPT in Kiev, Ukraine, in 2012 and at the WPT Merit Classic in August 2013, where I came third in the Main Event. This time I have won first place in WPT Super Hold’em and fifth place in Warm Up event of WPT Merit North Cyprus Classic’14.
