For a long time, the popular high roller "Trueteller" from Russia and little-known Russian player Timofey Kuznetsov existed as two different poker players, until in May 2015 it became clear that it was the same person.

Truteller is better known as online cash game player. However, after exposing his identity, Timofey could be seen among the participants in several high roller tournaments. Prior to this, Kuznetsov took part in a couple of events of famous poker series, but there were no special achievements at his disposal.
