We can also reveal some more about vovanitsch, the winner of the $300K Guaranteed Sunday from April 13.
Our champ is actually 20-year-old Dimitri who lives in Germany. He got into poker after seeing it on TV and becoming intrigued. A friend taught him how to play and they ended up playing games for play money in his chess club. Dimitri didn’t say how poker’s affected his chess.
The $300K Guaranteed Sunday win marked only the fourth time the medical student had competed in our big-money event and eclipsed his previous best online result of finishing up runner up in a regular $33 tournament.
When it comes to strategy, the Ukraine native said: “I play tight in the first levels and wait for good hands. In late levels I try to play aggressive and double up small stacked or to make pressure on other players as a big stack.”
And what will Dimitri be spending his wings on? “I need a lot of money for my study,” he said. “I will also buy some nice things, like a new computer, and the rest will go to my bankroll so I can play higher limit poker.”
