Last year, Dragos Trofimov won a Spring Championship of Online Poker event, banking $47,660. The 28-year-old from Moldova plays as "Fenryr03" online at PokerStars, but he's also a very recognizable face at live events. With $535,680 in career earnings, Trofimov is third on his nation's all-time leaderboard, trailing only Pavel Plesuv and Vyacheslav Stoyanov.
Trofimov already has a coveted trophy at home; he topped the £2,200 High Roller at PokerStars Festival London in 2018 for £73,990. It had been his career-best result until he reached the final table here in Monaco.
Guaranteed to pick up a six-figure payout, it will also be his third EPT Main Event cash. Trofimov can become Moldova's first-ever EPT champion, but he has the work cut out for him as he's bringing the shortest stack to the final day.
