EPT9 Prague: Mykola Chornyi takes the €330 turbo

Mykola Chornyi is from Ukraine. There's a few ways to tell this. One: he has the bone structure of a descendant of the Varangians, the 9th Century vikings who settled the area around modern day Ukraine. Two: he wears Ukrainian colours in his winner's photo. Three: this one may be most telling, the spreadsheet of results generated overnight by the PS Live system tells us that's where he's from.

Since Season 9 kicked off everyone that has arrived to play, no matter whether a Main Event or a fun-packed €330 turbo, gets a PS Live card, which you can read more about here.
