Ben86 is the PokerStars screen name of American online poker professional, Ben Tollerene. Ben can be seen at the highest stakes tables battling it out against some of the best in both NLHE and PLO. He has re-located to Vancouver after Black Friday in order to continue playing online.
Ben started his poker career with a $500 deposit onto Full Tilt and grinded his way through the stakes in NLHE. He credits his discovery of the 2+2 poker forum as a crucial point in his career and after absorbing as much information and advice as possible, he quickly moved up the stakes eventually settling for some time at $25/$50 NLHE.
He then transitioned to PLO learning the game before many other pros started playing it, and has done exceptionally well there since. He quickly realised the big swings in the game and has thus been more conservative with his bankroll. He has a degree in Finance from the Texas Tech University and says that he wants to pursue other interests of his in the future.
