Pavel "9pasha" (pronounced ya-pasha) Khvastunov is a Russian Dota 2 player who is currently playing for Virtus.pro. He formerly played offlane on team "UrsaStroitHram" (rus. Ursa builds a temple) and carry on Vega Squadron.


Pasha has been playing most of his career in the Offlane position, however, he had a long tenure of playing the Carry role, which started when Mag~, a renowned offlane player, joined Vega Squadron in Spring of 2015. Pasha kept playing the number 1 position through all his time with Vega, and later kept this role in Polarity. However, when he joined Fantastic Five in their efforts to make it through The International 2016 qualifiers, Pasha switched back to offlane. When Solo was tasked with drafting new Virtus.Pro squad, he decided to offer Pasha a position 3 in the new team.

  • His old nickname "9pashaebashu" is pronounced "ya pasha, yebashu". The number "9" looks similar to the Cyrillic letter "Я" ("Ya", which means "I" or "I am"). Pasha is his real name (a contraction of Pavel) and is what most Russian casters use. His nickname contains a Russian obscene word "yebashu", meaning "I'm playing f***ing hard".
  • Pasha's Twitter and Twitch accounts use picture of Phoenix as an avatar - Pasha is an avid Phoenix player and used to play it a lot on the Offlane position in the beginning of his career.
  • When asked in interview before The International 2015 Wildcard qualifiers how he would like to spend his hypothetical winnings, Pasha said that he would like to buy his own PC, since the one he had at home was broken, and he was forced to play most of his games from an Internet Cafe. Unfortunately for him, he made no money from Seattle trip, but later finally bought new PC with his share of ESL One New York 2015 prize.
  • Pasha was the person who "walked fans through" Vega's new gaming house in February 2016. He was kicked from the team shortly after.
