The Top Pros Look Back on The Glory Days of Online Poker!

Steven van Zadelhoff has been sharing some of his old wins from the glory days, bringing back memories for scores of players who started out on the likes of Ultimate Bet and Paradise Poker - and even 20-tabling across different sites!

The Dutchman hit the heights last year when he became the number 1 online MTT player in the world, boasting over $5million on his ‘SvZff’ PokerStars account alone, another $3million or so across the rest and some $1.75million in live cashes…

Van Zadelhoff’s walk down memory lane was sparked by Kenny ‘SpaceyFCB’ Hallaert digging out the old screenshots from when he was grinding it online in the mid-noughties, this Everest Poker pic certain to ring some bells among the online faithful…

…and adding his first 5-figure online score, played on the old Full Tilt Poker site which was home to hundreds of thousands of players brought in to the game after Chris Moneymaker’s big win in 2003…

A decade or more on and both men are still making the news, Hallaert recovering from a bad run to land partypoker’s Big Sunday Bounty Hunter for a $50k score…

…and van Zadelhoff a must-snap figure for the cameras as he hams it up a bit at the MILLIONS UK in Nottingham

….now cutting a fine figure for someone who has spent years sitting in front of a screen!

The reminiscing about ‘days gone by’ is also a memory test for many – see how many screen-names you recognise from this PokerStars lobby back in 2007…
