In 2013, Supernova Elite player Andrey Shatilov bought into the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure for 750,000 FPPs and made the final table, finishing sixth for $325,000. For this stop in Barcelona, Shatilov once again dug into his FPP treasure trove and bought in for 425,000 FPPs, and as of right now he stands to make at least €121,300 at the final table.

Shatilov first started playing poker in 2008, competing mainly in heads-up and short-handed sit-n-gos at the micro-stakes level. While studying mechanics and mathematics at university, he worked as a programmer and then as a specialty engineer-designer before quitting to play poker full-time.

Now, Shatilov specializes in online turbo and hyper-turbo six-max sit-n-gos at the$200-$1,000 limits on PokerStars and has been a Supernova Elite for several years. He started playing live tournaments in 2010 and now has nearly $1,000,000 in lifetime tournament winnings to his name, putting him at No. 27 on the Russian all-time money list.

Shatilov's best live result was third in the EPT Season 9 Grand Final €5,000 side event for €151,710. He was also 14th in last season’s EPT Barcelona High Roller for €26,450.
