Kayhan Mokri picked up poker six or seven years ago. Around 2018, he turned professional. While his forte is cash games, Mokri has already had some success at tournament tables.
He has racked up over $200,000 in live cashes, but, more importantly, Mokri's biggest MTT success came online at PokerStars. Known as "KayhanMok", he finished third in last year's $10k SCOOP Main Event for a massive $791,074 payday.
"Maybe I'll start playing some more tournaments now," he said, considering that he's already notched outstanding results despite a low tournament volume.
Mokri can emerge as the fourth player from Norway to capture the EPT Main Event title and the first in 12 years. While representing Norway, he hasn't spent much time at home lately. This year, he's been nearly always on the road. Traveling and playing padel are Mokri's favorite activities.
