Main Event

Seat 8: Artem Litvinov (800,000)

Artem Litvinov

Coming in as the short stack today, Russian player Artem Litvinov is an EPT regular with five Main Event cashes to his name already, including 16th at EPT8 Deauville for €26,000. Litvinov works in marketing but plays a lot of high stakes poker, both live and online. He first started playing poker about seven years ago. His best result to date was in April when he outlasted players such as Phil Ivey, Alex Bilokur and Martin Finger to finish fifth in the PokerStars and Monte-Carlo®Casino EPT Grand Final High Roller for €216,000. His live tournament winnings already total nearly $500,000 – but would have been €122,960 more if he hadn’t bubbled the Super High Roller at EPT Barcelona. Online, he also has a string of tidy results including third in a $2k SCOOP NL event for $206,784 and third in a WCOOP event for $144,808.
