Who is BenyamineX on PokerStars? Since the account was registered in the Netherlands, we here at Highstakesdb naturally assume that he in fact is, Dutch. Mostly because The Netherlands isn't exactly the United Kingdom, geographically it's close, but when it comes to taxes on Poker winnings (and losses too for that matter), it's in a different Universe. An Evil one. (Briefly covered here)
We bet that a lot of people thought it was David Benyamine, when they first saw the name. But David's screen name on PokerStars is "magicpitch" (hasn't been active in a long time though).
BenyamineX has played mostly PLO at stakes as high as $200/400, some NLHE in between and a few hands of Draw Games every now and then.
Regarding his choice of screen name, "Benjamins" is $100 bills (Dead "Prez" Benjamin Franklin) and X is 10 in Roman numbers. In other word's $1K, $1000, a G or a grand. Makes sense in a way, but we're pretty sure that this is just pure coincidence.
