Pavel Plesuv is on a streak in 2018 with yet another victory! This time he managed to top an event called World Poker Tour Seminole Rock ‘N’ Roll Poker Open (or just abbreviated as RRPO). It is an event which is part of WPT Seminole RNR and it required a $3,500 buy in. Pavel Plesuv is a player who currently lives in the Czech Republic but was born in Moldova. He is only 30 years old and has already managed to land quite a few victories. The last one brought him a hefty sum of $504,820. Although this was a pretty great year for Plesuv, he did not manage to win Season XIV of the WPT Prague that took place in his home country. Instead, he was a runner-up and managed to win $130,524 in that event. Pavel who was pretty excited about this recent victory and even gave a short interview after he managed to win. He stated that he had felt pretty awesome. Furthermore, Plesuv added that he felt awesome because he had missed his victory three years ago in Prague when he had a great chip lead but lost the heads-up play. Therefore, it was only logical for him to feel the excitement of the victory since this was a very important victory in WPT.

With this win, Plesuv has managed to pile up a total of $4 million in his lifetime earnings from poker. If you consider him Moldovan, he is definitely now the best poker player that ever came from that country, and currently occupies the first place on the Moldovan all-time money list. His winnings are not equally distributed, though. In fact, Pavel managed to collect $2.6 million in 2018 only, and the biggest amount of money he won was $924,841 as he finished on a runner-up place in the PartyPoker MILLIONS Germany, having lost the heads-up play to Viktor Blom. His other great score includes $640,062 when he won MSPT Venetian $3,500 event and managed to best the field of 1,096 players.  Plesuv also confirmed that 2018 had been his best year so far. He said that it had started with a win that had happened in February and that he had also finished his year with a win. He also said that the did not lose hope and that he might win some tournaments in December as well. Other players who made it to the final table are Jim Gilbert, Jeremy Joseph, Marius Gierse, Chris Kennedy, and Ravi Raghavan. Furthermore, some other names worth mentioning that entered the money list but did not make it to the final table are Alan Schein, Phil Hil, Lexy Gavin, Joe McKeehen, Aaron Massey, and David Peters who also had a very good year behind him.
