Alexandr Lavrenchik won his entry into the 2020 PokerStars Players Championship in Barcelona via the Mega Path promotion.
The 34-year-old Russian living in Ukraine first started watching poker on television back in 2007, and soon after began playing in home games with friends. A couple of years later he began playing online, and will occasionally play live tournaments as well in local clubs when not working his full-time job in IT.
Prior to winning his Platinum Pass package, Lavrenchik enjoyed previous success at the virtual felt, including a $15K win once on PokerStars. When asked about his greatest achievement, however, Lavrenchik’s reply indicates his aspirations perhaps to do something special in Barcelona.
“In future,” he says.
