Vladimir Troyanovsky is a name that the EPT presenters are going to have to get used to saying. The Russian made a big splash at this year’s PCA when he finished second to Vanessa Selbst in the $25,000 High Roller for $792,180 and seventh in the $100,000 Super High Roller for $257,580. Not a bad haul for a week’s work.
His lifetime tournament cashes total is now up to $1,339,991 thanks to a €51,000 win in the €5k turbo, one of the closing events at EPT Deauville. Troyanovsky beat Dorin Rauta into second place leaving the highly rated duo of Anton Wigg (third, €20,00) and Marc-Andre Ladouceur (fourth, €13,200) just out of the big money.
