Russia has only entered the top echelon of the Poker world recently, but the country – hosting a rich tradition of world class strategic excellence in other games such as Chess – has continuously produced players capable of intimidating the competition on the World stage. From initial breakouts such as WSOP Main Event finalists Alex Kravchenko and Ivan Demidov to current tournament juggernauts like Alex Bilokur and others.

The Global Poker Masters is a purely competitive arena where Poker’s top countries can compete for global dominance without gimmicks; with national teams chosen solely on the merit of player’s results, and the advantage of a structure created to showcase players’ skills above everything else.
