Yevgeniy Timoshenko is one of the toughest tournament players in the world. He's had huge scores live and on the internet but he's never had an opportunity like he has right now in the 2013 World Series of Poker Main Event. The man known as JovialGent online is one of the big stacks with 37 players left, hunting $8 million and the title of world champion.

Yevgevniy: No tournament I've gone deep in before can even touch the World Series of P oker main event it really is the championship of poker. There's one every year its the biggest prize all year in poker and it is just such a prestigious event to win. Frankly, it's such a hard tournament to win that the best players in the world rarely get a chance at it even if they play it for ten years so the fact that I'm in this position is just unbelievable. I'm tremendously grateful and I'm doing my best to do as well as I can in it. There is definitely some inexperienced players left in the tournament, however, there is also a ton of really good players that made it this deep with chips for a reason because they're making great reads they're making great plays and whatever they are doing is working so there's no pushovers left in the field. There's a lot of high level poker going on and you really need to be sharp and on your A game to make it this far. It's the most prestigious event in the world and I'd love to win it. I'm doing everything I can and trying my best and hopefully the cards fall my way.
