The $200/400 PLO game soon caught the attention of Joe Ingram, who decided to rail the nosebleed table, amazed that in 2018 someone would be sitting with more than $600k!

SwordfishAA is none other than Australian crypto-multi millionaire Matt Kirk, of course, a well-known face at the biggest live and online tables – rumour having it that he made some $600million from his early Bitcoin purchases…

Ingram decided to livestream a chunk of the highstakes action, with fans of the game chiming in with their thoughts on who some of the other mysterious millionaires are…

Is MoneyMonk1 really Todd Brunson as one YouTube comment suggests? It seems unlikely that such a big name would remain anonymous for so long.

How about Big_Fish11? Well it can’t be Kings Casino boss Leon Tsoukernik, because that mighty PLO aficionado, under the moniker KingsOfLeon was sat next to Big_Fish11 in another big session earlier this year! Most likely it’s the enigmatic Roman L. a Russian with plenty of money!

Whoever they are, they don’t seem to have walked off with the money – Ingram tweeting that Dusk Till Dawn Casino head honcho Rob Yong, and Trickett himself, were the big winners…
