Sergiu Covrig, who plays poker online under the alias "OpusAsu", is one of Romania's most famous poker players. He has lived in Bucharest for the past three years with his lovely wife Alina and his dog Toto.
If you ever find yourself in Bucharest at a live poker event, you are almost guaranteed to play against him (although you may not be at the same table), as he rarely misses a local event. He also attends many tournaments across Europe. Don't hesitate to say "hi" if you meet him, as he loves to chat and meet new people.
Sergiu first discovered poker after finishing college. He almost instantly became hooked on poker with the unlimited ways to play and a massive variety of games. While he continues to play and improve his game, his master's degree in business management is gathering dust, being forgotten in a drawer somewhere
After playing recreationally for many years, primarily live cash games, in 2015, Sergiu committed himself to learn the intricacies of MTTs. After grinding and studying for thousands of hours, the results started to come and confirmed the effort was worth the investment. Amongst his many achievements, one of his most remarkable feats was winning his first and, so far, only World Series of Poker bracelet in 2021 at the WSOP-E Rozvadov.
You can now find him regularly live streaming mid- to high-stakes tournaments as part of Team Romania. He is also available to chat on Discord.
With the various things he wants to complete over his career, his current big poker goal is to win a 6 figure prize during a live stream.
