Seat 2: Vladimir Troyanovskiy, Russia (5,025,000)

Vladimir Troyanovskiy

Russia's Vladimir Troyanovskiy is no stranger to success at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure. In 2013, the 42-year-old won over $1 million from this event thanks to two big finishes worth $257,580 and $792,180. Those two scores came from a seventh-place finish in the $100,000 Super High Roller and a second-place finish in the $25,000 High Roller, respectively.

Troyanovskiy began playing poker at a very young age and grew up improving his skills in clubs in Moscow. His live results date back to 2003, but it took a decade before he broke out thanks to those two large results from the 2013 PCA.

With $3.991 million in live tournament earnings entering this event, Troyanovskiy has now eclipsed the $4 million mark thanks to the $153,920 score he's guaranteed here. That's a pretty penny for sure, but if Troyanovskiy were to bust in sixth place, it would only rank as the ninth largest score of his career.

With 5.025 million in chips entering Day 6, Troyanovskiy is third in chips amongst the final six with nearly 63 big blinds.
