Hungarian Andras Kovacs has been playing EPTs for a relatively long time – since EPT Season 4 – but his best live result to date actually came on the PokerStars Italian Poker Tour in Venice in January last year. Team PokerStars Pro Salvatore Bonavena won the event but Kovacs took €60,000 for third place. Only six months later, he made another IPT Venice final, this time finishing sixth for €35,000. In September this year he had another big hit, finishing 12th at WPT Paris for €44,445. He only has one EPT Main Event cash to his name – a deep run at EPT Barcelona in August where he finished 19th for €20,000 – but he has made the final of numerous side events and was runner-up in the EPT7 Barcelona Heads-Up tourney. His total live tournament winnings already total $431,188.
Andras started playing poker when he was 20 years old in 2005. He is also a successful online player and has earned close to $700,000 including a runner-up finish which earned him more than $200,000. On PokerStars, he finished 3rd in a $215 Sunday Warm-Up for $80,256. Andras is being supported in Greece by his girlfriend Krisztina as well as Team PokerStars Pro Richard Toth.
