31-year-old Pavel Veksler had been flying under the radar, but he took off at the PCA 2019. Veksler first had a decent run in the 1,039-strong PSPC, finishing 68th for $56,800, his biggest live cash at the time. It took Veksler only a few days to push the bar even higher. He's locked up his first six-figure score. He's been relatively new to the live felt with his earliest reported cashes only dating back to 2017. Veksler was busy grinding live tournaments in Las Vegas last summer, cashing in nine of them including the WSOP Main Event.
While the new year is only a couple of weeks old, it already seems evident that 2019 is going to be Veksler's breakout year on the top level poker scene.
