The Liar is 36th on the list of biggest poker winners tracked by HighstakesDB. The data is based on 382964 hands played and his total cash game profits amount to $1,031,391.
"The Liar" is an unidentified player whose account is registered in Thailand.
"The Liar" plays PLO cash games, mostly at $25/$50 and $50/$100 although we have seen him play as high as $200/$400 in the past depending on the line-up of players. He seems to sit short-stacked at the tables using it as an advantage against the players who sit deeper. He managed to reach the $1 million profit mark by May 2012. Furthermore, for a player who solely focuses on PLO, he has not had any major downswings since we started tracking him which is in itself a remarkable achievement.
The player may originally be from Thailand or may have moved there to play poker. A few high stakes pros such as Sebastien "Seb86" Sabic and Alex "BiatchPeople" Luneau spend a few months a year in Thailand as its a great place to relax and party (plus play poker in the nice climate) so "The Liar" could quite possibly have re-located there from another country where online poker may be illegal or highly taxed.
