PokerNews Strategy: Meet the Pros
PokerNews have recently relaunched their training site PokerNews Strategy with a roster of poker pros that is the envy of the online world. PokerNews Strategy boasts some of the best cash game players and some of the hottest MTT specialists on the planet sharing their thought processes as they crush the games that made them stars.
Among our ever growing roster of players, we have the following players, all of whom command small armies of railbirds:
Randy "nanonoko" Lew is a member of Team PokerStars Online and is one of the most successful high volume no limit players in the world. He regularly plays up to 24 tables of cash at one time, a feat which has seen him attain SuperNova Elite for three years in a row and he has played more hands than anyone else in the world. He is the second most searched for player in online poker behind durrrr and a regular poster in the PokerNews Strategy forums.
One of the top NLHE winners on Full Tilt Poker this year, John "UMD Tennis" O'Rourke is a 6 max and heads up specialist at $25/$50 -$100/$200. He is currently on a massive heater and is one to watch out for in the future.
Currently creating the same buzz that isildur1 was at the start of this year, 20 year old Scott "URnotINdanger2" Palmer has climbed the ranks faster than anyone to crush the nosebleed games. Often seen playing up to 10 tables of $100/$200-$200/$400 against players like durrrr, this sick young player is the real talk of online poker right now, along with his best friend jungleman12.
Currently on a real hot steak Evan "MacDaddy34" Panesis is one of the most consistent winners at $10/$20 six max and heads up. He is another player who came close this year in the WSOP, narrowly missing out on the final table of the $5k 6 max event.
An aspiring tennis pro, Jake "psutennis11" Toole became a pro MTT player after winning the $2,500 Six Max FTOPS event last year for over $500,000. Unlike a lot of tournament pros he has never been backed and is playing completely off his own dime.
19 year old Evan "NEONPILS99" Parkes of Vancouver may be young but is already regarded as one of the best MTT players in the world, with over $3 million in tournament cashes. Most of his big wins have been on Full Tilt which include two $1k Monday wins, two FTOPS finals and two back to back wins in the $320 six max Saturday tournament.
Frank "BLUEberLEEZ" Jordan is a big up and coming tournament pro with over $1.5 million in tournament cashes. This year he has been averaging a final table a day and recently has final tabled the Sunday Mulligan twice and the $300 rebuy FTOPS in quick succession.
Josh "LitleBastrd" Tieman has had a breakout year in 2010. He has been widely regarded as one of the best heads up PLO players in the world where he is a regular at $25/$50 but he has really come to our attention by winning a bracelet in WSOP Event #6: $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em Shootout for $441,692. He is a prolific poster in the PokerNews Strategy PLO forum.
