Alexander Kravchenko (Russian: Александр Кравченко, born April 21, 1971 in Arkhangelsk, Soviet Union) is a professional poker player based in Moscow, Russia. He started playing poker in 1997.[1] In the 2007 World Series of Poker, he cashed six times, including finishing fourth at the Main Event and the $1,500 Limit Omaha Hi/Lo event where he won a WSOP bracelet. Kravchenko had some other notable cashes in 2007, including making the final table (finishing fifth) in the inaugural World Series of Poker Europe tournament, a £2,500 buy-in H.O.R.S.E. event, as well as finishing 3rd in the Moscow Millions, which featured the largest ever prizepool for a tournament held in Russia.

As a result of his success at the 2007 World Series of Poker, Kravchenko passed Kirill Gerasimov to become the all-time leading money winner among Russian players, although as of 2014, he is 4th.[2] He is also the first Russian citizen to win a WSOP bracelet.[3]

As of 2014, his live tournament winnings exceed $4,000,000.[4] His 32 cashes at the WSOP account for $2,661,909 of those winnings.[5]
