Pavel Veksler

31-year-old Pavel Veksler had been flying under the radar, but he took off at the PCA 2019. Veksler first had a decent run in the 1,039-strong PSPC, finishing 68th for $56,800, his biggest live cash at the time. It took Veksler only a few days to push the bar even higher. He's locked up his first six-figure score. He's been relatively new to the live felt with his earliest reported cashes only dating back to 2017. Veksler was busy grinding live tournaments in Las Vegas last summer, cashing in nine of them including the WSOP Main Event.

While the new year is only a couple of weeks old, it already seems evident that 2019 is going to be Veksler's breakout year on the top level poker scene.

Vicent Bosca

Spanish player Vicent Bosca may not be a household name in the live tournament arenas, but he's an accomplished professional poker player with a solid online background. Bosca has been active in both tournaments and cash games at PokerStars.

The 29-year-old started travelling around the world last year, shifting his focus to live events. He ran deep in the 2018 WSOP Main Event, finishing in 80th place for $91,610, his then-largest live tournament payday. Now he's guaranteed to boost his Hendon Mob résumé with his first six-figure result, a feat he's already accomplished online.

Bosca is guaranteed to sky-rocket on the Spanish all-time money list where he currently occupies the 111th place with $190,000 and change.
