Genius28 is both the PokerStars and Full Tilt alter ego of Chris Lee, a 24 year old alumni of the prestigious Duke University in North Carolina.

Genius28 has been a high stakes online player since he was a teenager and is well known for taking on allcomers at any stakes - on his Full Tilt account he often took on the likes of Phil Ivey and Patrik Antonius heads up at stakes up to $500/$1000 playing both NLHE and PLO.

It was at Full Tilt that Lee won his biggest hand to date, this $200k pot played heads up at the $500/$1000 NLHE tables back in 2007 against the legend that is Phil Ivey. Ivey turns top pair and is happy to get his money in only to discover he is drawing dead to Lee's flopped set.

Lee has also had decent success in online tournaments, making over a quarter of a million dollars profit across the two major sites.

Lee had suffered something of a downswing in recent years, dropping over $300k in profits in his online tournaments and a similar amount from his PokerStars cash games winnings. However, he has in recent months rediscovered the form which led many commentators in his 2007 heyday to proclaim him one of the best players in the game. Lee won his first WSOP Bracelet in June this year, besting a field of 431 players in the $2,500 10 games six max event for a first prize of $255,000. Since then he has been on a decent heater at PokerStars winning over $200k in the high stakes PLO games, and is now showing over $150k in profits for 2011 at PokerStars.
