The most successful Belarusian player in history has become an ambassador for Party Poker.
The famous Belarusian poker pro Nikita Bodyakovsky, who was known to the general public primarily by playing at high limits in PokerStars under the nickname fish2013, joined the team of Party Poker representatives, which won the title of the best poker room for the second year in a row. Among other well-known people in the poker community representing Party Poker, we can highlight Anatoly Filatov, Fedor Holz, Timofey "Trueteller" Kuznetsov, as well as the famous cash grinder Bertrand "ElkY" Grospeller.
What has attracted Nikita to the attention of the Party Poker management right now?
It's simple: for this you only needed to win about $ 15 million in tournaments during 2018. How did he do it?
- $ 2.5 million for 1 first place in the Triton Super High Roller Series in Montenegro
- $ 1.6 million for 4th place in the Super High Roller Bowl in Las Vegas
- $ 5.3 million for 1st place of the Triton Super High Roller Series in South Korea
- € 1.65m for 1st Super High Roller at EPT Barcelona
- about € 1.5 million in various October European Series of Poker Tours
- $ 700k for 4th place in the Super High Roller Championships partypoker Caribbean Poker Party
As you can see, the list is quite impressive and just luck in a particular tournament cannot explain such success in a year - everything was won, as they say, "on the skill." Moreover, getting into the money began in mid-summer, and before that Nikita had held about 30 tournaments without ITM, which is not easy even for such an experienced fighter as Nikita to withstand. But in the end, Fortune returned the favor. For all the pain! Moreover, the contract with Party Poker has arrived, in which the amounts will obviously appear not to go for bread. With which we congratulate Nikita!
What responsibilities will Bodyakovsky have as an ambassador?
As Nikita himself says, he will be more engaged in internal work aimed at improving the quality standards of Party Poker. Help the poker room with your advice and rich experience. As in almost one well-known proverb: one head is good, but 10 ambassadors are better :) In addition, it is likely that Nikita will sometimes comment on the numerous offline tournaments held by Party, such as MILLIONS World, as well as stream an online analogue of the above MILLIONS Online tournament ... In general, a standard set for all representatives of poker rooms, no sensations.
