Recreational poker player Sergei Petrushevskii comes from Saint Petersburg. The 36-year-old businessman owns a developing company.
He arrived in EPT13 Prague with two of his friends - Aleksandr Nemtcov and Viacheslav Belyaev - to have fun and experience the EPT Main Event for their first time. They all made it to the money; Nemtcov took €27,200 for 26th place while Belyaev earned €17,200 for 56th place. However, it's Petrushevskii who topped the trio, navigating his way to the final.
Usually playing poker at home with his friends, Petrushevskii is now guaranteed to collect a six-figure prize. Until his EPT13 Prague deep run, his best result was $6,500 for a first place in a $55 tournament on PokerStars. Live he has only a single result; €153 for his 17th place in a €60 event in Rozvadov.
Petrushevskii's hobby is dining with friends and drinking beer. Prague certainly offers him many options to enjoy his favorite drink - if he'll ever get away from the poker table.
