First, he made it into the finals of the Red Spade Open participated by more than 32 thousand people. He finished second missing title, but walked away with the lions share of the prize pool: $225,689. And then 7 days later he won the first place in the Sunday Million tournament - 7,485 competitors - and got $224,550 pushing his eight-day total to a staggering $450,239.
The player fro Kazakhstan who goes under the nick Agrobot_388Z was steadily grinding small tournaments before he suddenly landed the two huge wins in November. His prize money was almost the same in the two tournaments, this adds some mystery to the story.
There is no more information about the poker player from Kazakhstan, except his nickname Agrobot_388Z. According to some assumptions, the lucky man may be living in Petropavlovsk, in northern Kazakhstan.
According to the gambling statistics, the Kazakhstani started playing in 2013 and participated in more than one thousand tournaments, but didn't strike much luck until the first decade of November.
