Russian poker player Aleksei Vandyshev won more than $2.5 millionat the GGPoker 2021 WSOP Online Main Event.
Prior to the playing of the final table, Vandyshev recorded a short interview in which he expressed supreme confidence that, in the end, it would be he who was this year’s Main Event champ.
“I think my strength as a poker player is that I have a built-in crystal ball, so I see it when people try to trick me,” Vandyshev said. “I think I can win because I don’t care at all about ICM. I will always find a way to bring home the bacon. I want the bracelet and I want it really badly. Other players should think twice because if they fight me, they will only prolong the suffering – the magic is with me.”
