Starting off like most poker players do, LLinusLLove had problems winning at the start of his career, constantly busting his bankroll, but he then decided it was time to take it a bit more seriously. In early 2013, Linus posted a thread on the twoplustwo forum saying that he’d update his progress whilst trying to rise through the stakes online:

In only a short period of time, Linus had managed to rise through the ranks following a bankroll strategy that he’d set himself. A couple of years of hard work go by, and Linus is now competing with the best players online. By 2016, he was playing $25/$50 on PokerStars and had started to face the top tier regs. He mentioned in an interview with Triton why he thinks he rose up so quickly

From then on, Linus tore down everyone in his path and an accumulated close to $1.5 million in his next two years, just from PokerStars.

Playing with the biggest online names such as ‘Otb_RedBaron’ and ‘limitless’, Linus gathered the respect from the other top regs that today, do not want to play him. Linus is regularly seen at the highest stakes cash games on PokerStars.

In the past couple of years, Linus has moved a substantial amount of his volume to the live circuit.. His online presence means that he is also well known at the tables live. Linus has a near $2 million in earnings live with only a total of six live tournaments played.

It will be interesting to see what he can achieve in the coming years.
