Bulgarian professional poker player Dimitar Danchev was the last man standing at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure, beating out 986 other players and taking home $1,859,000 in the process.
The tournament was held in Nassau, Bahamas, and saw Danchev take the crown even after entering the final table with the second lowest chip total. That table was occupied by fellow poker players Jerry Wong, Jonathan Roy, Owen Crowe, Andrew Shatilov, Yann Dion and Joao Nogueira and others.
Using patience and skill to work his way up slowly, Danchev went head to head with Joel Micka, who finished second and took home $1,190,000.
Danchev is a 26 year old pro hailing from Plovdiv, Bulgaria. For his career Danchev has claimed $2.8 million in winnings.
