New Record at Poker Tournament


A talented mixed game poker player, Yuval Bronshtein from the United States, proved his greatness by winning two events at the Full Tilt Poker Online Poker Series within twelve hours.

The lucky player first grabbed the prize pool in event number 14, the H.O.R.S.E event before winning the No Limit Turbo event number 15. All in all, Bronshtein walked away $172,387 – not bad for half a day’s work!

“I don't think it's something that anyone will duplicate ever again,” said Bronshtein about his double win. “That's what I want more than anything else; to do things that no one has ever done before. That's why pulling this off meant so much to me.”

While Bronshtein is best known online via his player name yuvee04, he has also enjoyed success as a live tournament player. Speaking of his future plans, Bronshtein said: “I want to become the first American to win a World Series of Poker Europe bracelet. And I think I have a good shot of doing it.”
