Denys Drobyna

Denys Drobyna is a full-time poker pro who mainly plays online -- No-Limit Hold'em cash games at the $5/10 to $25/50 levels. Online cash games are his bread and butter and he hardly ever plays online tourneys, but he does enjoy competing at live events “for fun”.

He made his first EPT appearance at Dortmund in Season 4 and reckons he has played around six EPTs so far. His best EPT finish to date was 25th place at EPT San Remo six weeks ago. His best overall live result was 15th place in a 2008 World Series of Poker $2,000 event for $35,843.

He said, “I’ve been playing well here in Prague, and I’ve also been lucky. I won a couple of coin flips but you need to be able to fold right, raise right and get the right cards at the right time. I feel very focused right now. I need to be. There are a lot of good players still in.”

Drobyna won Skrill’s Last Longer contest at Prague having outlasted more than 100 players who took part. This means his €5,300 buy-in will be credited back into his Skrill account.
