Famously turning $4K into $2M at Full Tilt Poker's high stakes
Pot Limit Omaha cash games in March of 2011, "XWINK" has become one of the hottest new high stakes PLO players at Full Tilt. Despite subsequent heavy losses that followed the astounding run, "XWINK" quickly rebounded, and is likely to remain a dominating force at Full Tilt.
However, this is not exactly a new phenomenon for the anonymous player from Vancouver. In 2009, using the screen name "XBLINK", the Canadian poker player
won roughly $700 in an $11 tournament at UB, which he then began grinding at the mid-level, then high stakes, Heads Up PLO tables. When the action at the PLO tables died, "XBLINK" took his six-digit bankroll on a bumpy ride at UB's No Limit Hold'em tables. Eventually, "XBLINK" cashed out an even $1M from UB.
Now known as "XWINK" at Full Tilt Poker, our mystery player got started playing poker in local live games for nearly two years before joining online poker site
UB as "XBLINK". Underage until 2011, "XWINK" is now eying the major live tournaments in the United States, such as the WSOP.
