The Online Railbird Report: Jedlicka Wins $216,000 in Quiet Summer Month

Niki Jedlicka


  • Austrian pro Nikolaus "Niki" Jedlicka banked $216,410 this past week. Dang. Well done.

It's been a long summer in which the poker world was mostly focused on the action in Las Vegas. The World Series of Poker made for some quiet months at the high stakes online, but now that the WSOP has come to a close the action is slowly picking up pace.

The player who won the most online this recent month is Austrian pro Nikolaus "Niki" Jedlicka, according to online tracking site HighStakesDB. Jedlicka played a total of 7,610 hands on PokerStars under the monicker of "RealAndyBeal" and made $216,410, almost $28.50 per hand played. That catapulted him to +$258,750 total for the year, though he's still $443.202 in the red overall on that account during his lifetime.

Jedlicka famously went on a once-in-a-lifetime heater on Full Tilt Poker back in 2007. Playing under the screen name "KaiBuxxe" he went from down $426,000 to plus $4,030,000 in a single month. It didn't take long for Full Tilt Poker to sign him as a Red Pro, which would ultimately prove to be his downfall. Under his new account "Niki Jedlicka" he lost month after month, ultimately finishing down $3.837.844 which he's documented himself, calling it the "red pro curse."

We've combined the three known accounts into a single graph to give you an idea about the enormous swings Jedlicka has endured in his poker career. It should be noted that the compiled data is not conclusive as only $25/$50 and up are registered and not all hands are tracked.

"candela2005" would have had more than 31% equity if he were up against any other flopped flush, but Martí's straight flush draw took away the {Q-Hearts} and {7-Hearts} as outs which resulted in just a 23% chance of winning the pot.

The {7-Spades} on the turn and {Q-Clubs} on the river were effectively blanks and the pot went to Martí.

3) "candela2005" Wins a $52,147 Pot (130 big blinds) versus Nikita "fish2013" Bodyakovskiy
($200/$400 NLH 5-handed)
