Alexandros Kolonias

Alexandros Kolonias is fourth on Greece’s all time money list for live tournament winnings with a string of results totaling $1.2 million. His best live cash came in May when he was runner-up to Romania’s Alex Papazian in the EPT Grand Final €25K High Roller for €805,900. Fresh from that big score, he then went on to win big online less than a week later. Playing as “Mexican222” on PokerStars, he took down Event 9-H of the 2016 SCOOP 2016 tonight for $66,140. He already had one SCOOP title - a win in a $530+R event back in 2014 for $144,400. According to PocketFives, his online cashes amount to more than $1.4 million with his biggest online result coming during WCOOP 2015 when he was third in the event 25, the $10k Optional Re-Entry High-Roller for $365,500 – the largest cash a Greek player had ever won online.
