Russian star Anatoly Filatov is the latest stellar name to join the Team partypoker roster in the role of sponsored pro.
Filatov, who is 28-years-old and hails from Moscow, is one of Russia’s brightest stars and boasts of more than $2.3 million in online poker tournament winnings and an additional $1.35 million from his live poker exploits.
Some of Filatov’s best tournament results include:
- Second place in a €10,300 High Roller at EPT Vienna in 2014 worth €265,200
- Third place in a €1,100 event at EPT Berlin in 2013 worth €126,000
- First place in the partypoker WPT Merit Classic in 2014 for $156,000
- Seventh place in the HK$250,000 APPT Championship of Poker in 2014 for $151,038
Filatov competed at the partypoker LIVE Sochi festival and while he couldn’t navigate his way to a cash in the $1 million guaranteed Main Event, he did reach the money places in the $330 buy-in no-limit hold’em speed bounty tournament.
In 2015, Filatov was selected to represent Team Russia in the Global Poker Masters World Cup where he helped guide Russia to a runner-up finish, losing to Team Italy in the final. More recently, Filatov was the captain of the Moscow Wolverines in the debut season of the Global Poker League where he earned almost twice the number of points as anyone else on his team.
As part of his role as a sponsored pro, Filatov will travel to many partypoker LIVE events, including the upcoming partypoker MILLIONS at Dusk Till Dawn where a total of £8 million is guaranteed to be won.
