€50,000 Super High Roller

Seat 5: Viacheslav Buldygin, 26, Sverdlovsk/Russia, 1,230,000

Viacheslav Buldygin

Not much is known about Buldygin, a young Russian player who has reportedly done well online. That would be the likely explanation for Buldygin's ability to play in some of the high-stakes live events, considering he had no live cashes until August 2015.

Since then, he has been unafraid to mix it up within the nosebleeds of the EPT, with three of his four live cashes coming in EPT High Rollers to account for most of his $258,094. Buldygin has been close to grabbing wins twice but finished runner-up in a pair of Malta events. He's a bit hot right now after cashing the €10,000 prelim event here at EPT Prague for €20,250.
