Alexandru Ionescu

Romania

Mega Path

Romanian Alexandru Ionescu won his way into the 2020 PokerStars Players Championship in Barcelona via the Mega Path promotion, a great and inexpensive way to get a Platinum Pass package.

The 33-year-old from Focsani is in the clothing business, though has been playing poker both seriously and for fun for the last six or seven years.

He mentions particularly enjoying playing five-card draw with his family (as well as watching movies). But Ionescu has also had some live tournament experience with a deep run in a Eureka event in Bucharest a highlight. He lists Daniel Negreanu (whose parents emigrated to Canada from Romania) as a favorite player.
