Bttech86 is the Full Tilt screen name for the American high stakes online pro, Ben Tollerene. Ben is a regular at the high stakes PLO tables, playing the highest games available.
Bens career did not take off in the same manner as some of his peers as he was actually a losing player for some time, busting his roll on 11 separate occasions. He credits his discovery of the 2+2 poker forums as the turning point, and after absorbing as much information and advice as possible from this font of poker knowledge deposited $500 on Full Tilt and began to grind the $50NL tables, quickly moving up the stakes eventually settling for some time at $25/$50 NL.
At this time Ben became a regular instructor at Leggo Poker (Ben is no longer active at Leggo) and since then has embraced PLO as his main game of choice where he is now a regular player and has played as high as $300/$600 under his Full Tilt alias, bttech86 (so called as he was attending Texas Tech at the time he registered the account - oh, and he was born in 1986 which you may have guessed!)
With over a million dollars in online tournament winnings and several cashed in the WSOP also to his name, Ben is obviously able to adapt his skills to suit either cash or tournament tables.
