Isaac Haxton

  • TBT: Which poker player is unrecognizable in this 2008 video?

Can you recognize this old video of one of the world's most elite poker players?

Hint: Back in 2008, he was often called "the lovechild of Howard Stern."

He is one of the world's best online and live poker players. You will also see him cheering on Justin Bonomo, Scott Seiver, and other elite poker players.

Give up?

It's Isaac "Ike" Haxton!

Haxton only plays very select, elite live tournaments these days, but he is still known for playing the highest level online sit and go cash games. Gloria Balding grabs John Lennon look alike Ike Haxton on Day 2 of his second ever H.O.R.S.E. live tournament. He talks about playing experienced pros Mike "The Mouth" Matusow and Gus Hansen.

Haxton ended up getting 13th in this event, but that was certainly not his last mixed game cash. This past June, Haxton took third place in the Aria $25,000 8 game tournament for $120,000 and, on Monday, he won the $10,000 Poker Masters Short Deck Event for $178,000.

Watch to see how Isaac "Luscious Locks" Haxton played mixed games when mixed games were played by the predominately white-haired crowd.
