Around the middle of 2006, up and coming online tournament player "Atimos" (also known by his PokerStars screen name "Jovial Gent") was starting to gain momentum. He had already achieved numerous 5-digit scores and entered the PocketFives.com Online Tournament Player Rankings, but had yet to receive the amount of recognition from the online poker community that the top-ranked players were getting.
All that changed on November 26, 2006, when Yevgeniy final-tabled and eventually won the PokerStars Sunday Million tournament outright for $250,000. From that point, "Atimos" has quickly moved up the rankings, all the way to the #3 spot he currently occupies.
But Mr. Timoshenko has posted respectable live tournament results as well, including two final tables in Paris, along with a victory in the $1,000 Irish Open for $166,000. In his Podcast interview, Yevgeniy talks about his tournament wins and gives our listeners advice on how to improve your outlook on the game of poker.
