Born as Nikita Bodyakovskiy, Mikita Badziakouski is a 29-year-old Belarusian who now accumulates more than $ 26 million in profits during his journey as a professional poker player. Known as "fish2013" and "HelicopterBen82", he started his journey in face-to-face poker events in 2010, at the age of 18. Badziakouski became known as "fish2013" within the largest virtual poker house in the world, PokerStars, and as "HelicopterBen82" at Full Tilt Poker. One of the curiosities about the player is that Badziakouski had chosen the number "2013" in his pseudonym because it would be the year in which he would turn 21 and could finally compete for the title of the World Series Of Poker in America, a championship he would win in the future.
