Biography

Alexander Kravchenko was born in 1971 in Russia. He’s a professional poker player that began making a name for himself just recently. Since picking up the game, Kravchenko has been crushing tournaments around the world.

Kravchenko’s tournament cashes date back to the late 1990s. Back then, he was playing mainly out of Russia. From 1999 until 2006, all of his cashes occurred outside of the United States on European soil. During this time, his largest score was a second-place finish in an event at the Moscow Open in 2003 for over $23,000.

In 2006, Kravchenko traveled to the States to play in the WSOP. He cashed twice this year for over $12,000 total. He also played a few events at the Bellagio Cup II and cashed twice.

In 2007, Kravchenko was back at the World Series and had a stellar year. First, he won the $1,500 Omaha 8-or-Better event and took home nearly $230,000. He also cashed four more times before the Main Event and made one final table in that stretch. During the Main Event, Kravchenko battled his way through the enormous field to make his way to the final table. He wound up going out in fourth place and earning himself over $1.8 million.

Later that year, he placed fifth in an event at the WSOP Europe and cashed at the EPT Baden. Not only that, but Alexander placed third in the Moscow Milliosn for $77,000. In total, he won himself over $2.2 million in 2007 alone.

Kravchenko kept playing hard through 2008 and scored himself a double-digit amount of cashes including two at the WSOP. His biggest cash of the year came with a second place at the CAPT Baden Open for over $170,000.

Currently, Alexander sits towards the top of the all-time leading money winners for Russian players with just shy of $3 million in career tournament earnings. His is the first Russian player to win a WSO gold bracelet and holds a total of 10 World Series cashes.
