Joeri "L0ve2playU" van der Sman is a Dutch online grinder who’s been tearing up the mid-high stakes scene at PokerStars. This player is a Dutch PLO specialist, and they pretty much religiously stick to the $25/$50 stakes. Perhaps the fact that L0ve2playU has never stepped outside of his comfort zone is a big reason why he hasn’t suffered any downswings since HighStakesDB began tracking PokerStars games in January, 2011.
Winning has come swiftly for L0ve2playU after he collected $144k to start the year. January/February proved to be excellent months for this player since he’d earned $312k by this point, and sat at $556k in overall winnings. From March to May, the winnings came more gradually at around a rate of $100k per month, but they kept rolling in nonetheless.
By May, L0ve2playU had earned $849k in total winnings throughout the first five months of 2011. This extremely profitable period included one session on May 10th where L0ve2playU made $192k against “im2tight,” and a variety of other $25/$50 PLO opponents
