Scott “URnotINdanger2” Palmer was formerly an Isildur1-style mystery player, who waited a while before finally revealing his true identity in the summer of 2010. As some may have guessed, his nickname is obviously Dang-inspired (Di Dang plays under the nickname Urindanger).
The Maryland, USA native often hangs out on the lower end of the high stakes NL Holdem tables at Full Tilt Poker, where he seems to be doing pretty well. Palmer spends much of his time battling other regulars at various stakes, which include everything from $1/$2 to $100/$200 NLHE and $5/$10 to $300/$600 PLO Omaha. Much like Randy “nanonoko” Lew, Palmer tries to exploit his edge at the lower limits by playing a large volume of hands every month. Over the past few years, URnotINdanger2 has played millions of hands at Full Tilt!
In recent times, Palmer has been heavily involved in the high stakes poker world too, and has seen quite a few nasty swings at the $50/$100 tables. During the first half of 2009, he managed to grind together about $413k, playing around 800,000 hands of $50/$100 PLO. He then lost almost all of that money during October and November. In December, he dropped down the stakes and bounced back, starting to win again; by Christmas, he’d managed to eke out a $322k profit.
In 2010, URnotINdanger2 lost all of these profits and more, which left him at -$127k by September. But since this time, Palmer is on a massive upswing, and has become one of the top high stakes PLO players; he is currently up over $1.9 million since hitting a low point in September of 2010.
Palmer also plays under the screen name “urnotindangr” at PokerStars. Thus far, much of his action at Stars has been relegated to the two SuperStar Showdown matches that he had with Viktor “Isildur1” Blom. He won the first match after earning $5,400, and lost the second matchup after dropping $66,000 to Blom.
