In the latest Capture the Flag interview, which focuses on high-stakes cash game pros, we get to know Alexander Kostritsyn better and find out that he is a true rags to riches success story.

Alexander Kostritsyn“I had a rough family situation,” Kostritsyn explained. “My father was making money, but he was getting paid with three- or four-month delays. My mother was working, but it became clear that she was about to lose her job. I knew then that I had to make poker work for me, and I started to take it very seriously.”

“My mother was making the American equivalent of $100 per month. Knowing that things were about to get really tough for us, she had spent several months saving and was able to put aside about $150. She believed in me, and gave me the money to play poker so that I could help provide for my family.”
