Cheers congrats sir, on a side not why always Russians win the big tourney and make the head lines, in every comp that i'm in there are always several Russians playing or lets say in a leader board they always made like 5/10 in the top 10.

Respect they good, always there and winning! Agree

Boy his expression to winning is almost nonbearable! I mean where's the excitement or at least a smile damn! I'm not judging the ol boy, but I would be excited enough to smile and show some sign of appreciation to win such an event. Maybe his business meeting was what he was worried about.

Well he won't have to go far to hide all his loot...! As far as I know,...Cyprus is where the wealthy Russian oligarchy likes to hide their money from the Russian tax man...

I saw something on the news lately how the government of Cyprus doesn't really want to co-operate with Russian authorities in fear that the wealthy Russians will pull all their money out of Cyprus and hide it somewhere else... Big Smile Dollar

Alexey Rybin dominate the tournament from start to finish. Rybin was able to make light work of Albert Daher ($160,200) heads-up and soon scooped the title and $258,000 with As5h against Daher's Ks9c after the board rolled out: AhTh7s7c2c.

To win one of these tourneys is exceptional but to be in the lead at the end of every day is some feat. Well done to Alexey Rybin for playing great
