“O Fortuna PLS” is an unknown high stakes Fixed Limit Hold’em player from Germany, who plays LHE stakes ranging from $100/$200 to $3,000/$6,000. He has been on the HighStakesDB radar ever since we started tracking Limit Hold’em games. In addition to playing LHE, O Fortuna PLS also plays in the nosebleed 2-7 Triple Draw games. He is certainly not afraid to play against some of the best in the world including Tom Dwan, Phil Ivey and Gus Hansen, and has done extremely well doing so.
He started playing poker in 2008 when he received a free $50 deposit from a promotional site. He began playing 2c/4c LHE on Party Poker and moved up to $250/$500 in just over a year. He then began to play on Stars and Full Tilt as well as a few Euro sites. He also played a bit of NLHE and PLO when he wanted to have some fun and play a different game.
He improved his LHE game by reading forums and watching videos. He improved in other games through learning-by-doing and talking to smart players. He tries to look at what opponents do that makes them tough and then tries to implement that into his game.
He began to play 2-7 triple draw in 2010 until Black Friday came and Full Tilt was shut down. He can once again be seen playing the nosebleed stakes at LHE and 2-7 triple draw on Full Tilt. He has quickly learned the mixed games and is also playing them now.
