From Veliko Tarnovo, Ognyan Dimov has already reached out for perfection in an EPT Main Event. Back in February 2015, then-25-year-old Dimov lifted the trophy in Deauville to win the second title for Bulgaria. Now 29, Dimov is having the best year of his poker career. While it may seem hard to top the €543,700 payday from Deauville, Dimov is just about to do so.
He added another major feather in his cap earlier this summer, snagging his first bracelet at the World Series of Poker. That triumph was worth $378,743 and Dimov has now locked up another six-figure payday, making the final table in the record-breaking EPT in Barcelona. There's no doubt his eyes will be all set on the €1.6 million top-prize which would also make him the first male player with two EPT Main Event titles.
