Vladimir Troyanovskiy is a famous Russian highroller player. At the beginning of his career, "vovtroy" played inexpensive offline tournaments. It was in 2003-2007. However, Troyanovskiy states that he played poker since school, but he had enough money only in the 2000s and after that he started to visit casinos.
At that time, the prize money of Russian player didn’t exceed the five-digit amounts. The fame and big prizes came to Vladimir since 2012. In that year, Troyanovskiy won his first EPT trophy and became the champion of heads-up tournament for €3,200 at EPT Berlin.
Now "vovtroy" has 7 PokerStars spades (4 won at EPT, 1 – at PokerStars Championship Bahamas, 1 – at PokerStars Festival Rozvadov and 1 – at PCA 2018), two APPT cups and Russian Poker Tour trophy.
Troyanovskiy earned his first million in poker in early 2013 at PokerStars Caribbean Adventure. He took the 7th place in Super High Roller with $100,000 buy-in and won $257,580. Then he became a runner-up of PCA 2013 High Roller Tournament and turned $25,500 buy-in into $792,180. From that moment, the success of Russian player had just begun.
Thus far, Troyanovskiy can be called a frequent guest of the popular poker series offline. His name periodically appears in a prize-winners’ list of series from PokerStars and in Asian tournaments. In the ranking of the best tournament players among Russian players, Troyanovskiy takes the 5th line (according to GPI). Despite this, Vladimir not only plays, but also acts as a backer.
Troyanovskiy plays at PokerStars under the nickname "vovtroy". He has a lot of first places and final tables of the popular PokerStars tournaments. According to various sources, Troyanovskiy earned over $2,000,000 in total in online tournaments.
He used to be an active online cash player, but now he rarely appears at the cash tables. He focused more on tournament play, as he considers that it is unprofitable to play online cash against the professional players and swindlers who use the statistics and other privileges of play at the computer.
