Known to frequent the high stakes
online Pot Limit Omaha games at Full Tilt Poker, 'sunra18' competes against the likes of Gus Hansen
, Tom 'durrrr' Dwan, and 'David Benyamine'. Playing poker online
since 2006, 'sunra18' achieved millionaire status in 2008; his total online poker earnings calculated at $1.42M by the end of that year. As of March 1, 2010, the largest pot 'sunra18' has claimed was a $200/$400 PLO scoop of $254,042 in 2008.
Throughout 2009 his bankroll yo-yo-ed dramatically with massive wins and losses. 'Sunra18' finished out that year with a mere $20K profit. Persisting in this trend 'sunra18' continued to see losses into February of 2010. February 12, 'sunra18' lost $139,226 playing $200/$400 Pot Limit Omaha, and another $86K at $25/$50 Pot Limit Omaha.
'Sunra18' was a proposed nominee to represent Denmark in the Best Online Player category of the 2010 Scandinavian Poker Awards, however Jesper 'Kipster' Hougaard earned the nomination. Believed to be Anders Rath from Hillerød, Denmark, 'sunra18' now lives in Monaco. It is speculated that 'sunra18' made the move for tax purposes.
In 2008 'sunra18' made poker headlines after verbally berating Tom 'durrrr' Dwan with infantile name-calling and criticism of Dwan's poker playing skill. The angry outburst occurred shortly after Dwan claimed a pot of over $100K that 'sunra18', it would seem, was committed to winning.
March 3, 2010, statistics showed that despite tremendous losses, over the course of his online poker career, 'sunra18' was still up just over $1M. But in the world of high stakes online poker, ultimate figures exist in a persistent state of flux.
