Vladimir's biggest success is a runner up finish at the $50K Poker Player's Championship 2010.
Online Vladimir plays several forms of poker, during the years on Full Tilt Poker playing as ""NEKOTYAN" he broke about even, but did really well in HORSE and Draw Games. Unfortunately he lost an equivalent amount playing PLO and Omaha High/Low.
On PokerStars however, it has been the other way around, this could of course change in either direction, but so far (March 2012) "GVOZDIKA55"'s graph for PLO showed a profit of $400K, while his losses in HORSE and Draw Games were around $400K.
