Rumen Nanev

Nanev, a tour regular who first played an EPT at Sanremo in Season 4, is thrilled to have finally made an EPT final. His best result to date was actually that first event in Italy when he finished fourth in a side event for €61,140. He has had four EPT Main Event cashes including EPT Deauville, 18th for €23,000, and EPT Barcelona, 21st for €20,000. He currently ranks #4 on the Bulgaria all-time money list with fellow finalist Simeon Naydenov at #3. He said: “It was one of my goals to make a final table this year so I feel great. I am really happy that both Simeon and I have made the final. We’ve been supporting each other throughout the tournament. We are good friends and always stick together at events. But no mistake – I’m going after him at the final”. Nanev, who comes from Varna in Bulgaria but moved to Vilamoura in Portugal two years ago, currently has live tournament winnings totaling nearly €500k and is already guaranteed a best-ever live cash.
