I saw him 2-3 years ago playing nosebleed tables on FTP vs Durrrr, Gus & co... He was sponsored player and consequently had his own avatar. Did not now much about him... He was playing PLO from what I've seen...

At one moment he had 2,4 M and fell down to 700 K before the ftp shut down...

Whoever makes 2,4M must be extremely good and extraordinary player..

Since ftp reopening he is 100K in +, atm he is playing HU HE ( -15K) vs Lima81...

Someone who is logged in ftp could see the country where he plays from now.... as he is from U.S.A...

thanks buddy... i already know these things about him... my question was why he plays poker again.... i remember that he told in an interview that he is done with poker and wants to put his energy in things that are more important than poker

maybe he came to realize that there are no things like that, lol.

seriously tho, his showing up doesnt mean he's back. maybe was just bored, maybe still had some money left on FT and decided to try and run it up or maybe he moved back in w/ durrrr. first love dies hard. ;-]

@WCS - u r right...

Fresh example is barcode ( under assumption that hi/they is/are Dang ...)....

@watcher - no one really knows why he returned to poker, but himself - likewise all others "bjorn borgs"..... Precise answer could do his sister ( if he has one) that's railing all the time and is active on highstakes db.... if.... she brakes promise to her brother that the real reason will remain secret....

Perhaps the "other things" that he was attempting didn't pan out so he's getting back to what he's good at.

Sitting around in sweats pushing buttons making money > just scraping by while working 16 hours days as small business owner

As far as I know he never really quit poker, he has been playing some high roller live tourneys from time to time, he just don't want poker to be everything in his life, and didn't want to leave the us just to play poker online.. not sure what the change is, maybe he is just taking some time off from his studies or whatever..

btw he made one of the best wells on 2+2: Raptors Well
