Seat 3: Alexandr Merzhvinskii, 30, Moscow/Russia (7,545,000 )
Alexandr Merzhvinskii already knows how it feels to hoist a coveted PokerStars trophy. He conquered the PokerStars Festival Sochi Main Event back in October 2017, taking home more than $130,000 along with the silverware.
The 30-year-old Muscovite has been treated well in Sochi, with all his major live tournament results emerging from there. That includes his career-biggest prize of $400,000 for a third place in the MILLIONS event, coming just a month before his triumph at the PSF.
Merzhvinskii is also active on the online scene. 2018 has been his breakout year on the virtual felt; Merzhvinskii claimed all of his top three results within the last 12 months.
