Parlafes first appeared on the international live poker scene in 2009, and his winnings already amount to nearly $500k ($488,192 so far) but – as he said yesterday after busting a player: "I'm the best at running good". He is now guaranteed at least €58,820 for making the final eight. Parlafes, who made the transition to poker from sports betting, is mainly a cash game player but he also plays some tournaments as he likes travelling with his mum and seeing new places. He reported a bunch of results in EPT and Eureka circuits but his best cash was in 2012 for $ 144,979 at the Vienna Poker Festival. He won his two weeks ago on PokerStars.fr.
