Kyle "cottonseed1" Hendon seems to be a player who has slipped under-the-radar from the high stakes community for several years. Kyle was a coach at Stoxpoker.com and people who have watched his videos or receiving individual coaching from him regard him as a 'natural' in poker.
His online poker career began in September 2004 and within two years he had worked his way up to playing $30/$60 and $50/$100 Limit Hold'em. He played against the Polaris bot in the summer of 2008 and won $37,000 against the machine. He decided to transition to NLHE in August 2006 and started off at NL200; he quickly progressed through the limits to playing $50/$100 short-handed and heads-up.
He has decided to return to playing limit games but now focusing on Omaha Hi/Lo where he can be seen battling it out at the highest stakes tables on Full Tilt.
