The Russian poker community has lost one of its greatest players as poker pro Nikolay Evdakov passed away on Monday this week. He died at the age of only 47 and no reason to his sudden death has been given.
Evdakov made a name for himself in the poker world during the 2008 World Series of Poker when he beat the most cashes during one WSOP record. In total, he cashed in 10 events and his best result was a 14th place in the $10,000 Pot Limit Omaha event. Last year he reached the quarter finals in the WSOP $25k NLH heads-up event, and the year before that he finished 9th in the World Poker Tour Final.
The funeral of Nikolay Evdakov will be held in his hometown next Wednesday. Rest in peace!
