EPT10 Vienna: Mr Boom, Bulgaria. Dimitar Danchev on his new-found celebrity

Dimitar Danchev, who is currently embroiled in the €10,000 High Roller, has become the poster boy for the poker boom in Bulgaria. Danchev, you may have heard, won the 2013 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure, which made him the best-known face in Bulgarian poker.

Since then, with the Eureka Poker Tour visiting as well, the game has undergone an exceptional surge in popularity in the region. Danchev talked to Sarah Grant, of PokerStars.tv, about his role in that -- and how he hopes the high-flying Simeon Naydenov and Rumen Nanev can emulate his success.

Day 4 of the Main Event page. The €10,000 High Roller has also started. Follow that on the High Roller page. Alternatively, watch on EPT Live.
