Information accurate as of 11 July 2009.

Ivan Demidov (born 1981) is a professional poker player from Moscow, Russia.

Demidov is one of the original 'November Nine', having made the final table of the World Series of Poker (WSOP) Main Event in 2008. He reached the heads-up stage along with Peter Eastgate, and took second place for $5,809,595. [1] Demidov stated that he would share his winnings with a Russian financial supporter who took him to some previous tournaments, with the backer getting more than Demidov.[2]

In October 2008, he also reached the final table of the World Series of Poker Europe Main Event in London, finishing in third place. In doing so, he became the first player in history to reach the final table of both Main Events in the same year. This feat was matched in 2009 by James Akenhead and Antoine Saout. Earlier in 2008 he finished in 11th place in a $1,000 no limit Texas hold 'em with rebuys event.

As of 2009, Demidov's live poker tournament winnings exceed $6,550,000.[3] His four cashes at the WSOP account for the majority of those winnings, totaling $6,468,381, [4]
