Henri Puustinen, known more affectionately as the online poker pro "Buttonclickr," is a skilled Finnish player who burst onto the high-stakes scene in his early 20s.
In 2021, at age 21, he made the trek across the pond to Las Vegas for the World Series of Poker, his first ever appearance in the annual poker extravaganza. Puustinen finished third in the $25,000 heads-up bracelet event for $87,787, just his second live cash.
The Finnish poker pro lost to the great Jason Koon, who eventually won the tournament, in the semifinals.
Earlier in the year, "Buttonclickr" held a different role. He helped prepare Doug Polk during his highly publicized heads-up challenge against Daniel Negreanu. Polk, partially thanks to Puustinen's assistance, won $1.2 million over 25,000 hands against the GGPoker ambassador.
Puustinen is best known for being one of the top online heads up players in the world. During a 2021 interview with PokerNews, he ranked himself as the third best HU player in the game.
Costly Appearance on Hustler Casino Live
In November 2021, "Buttonclickr" made his American live-stream poker debut on the popular Hustler Casino Live show at Hustler Casino in Garden, California. Suffice to say, it wasn't exactly his most pleasant experience playing poker.
Puustinen was in for nearly $400,000, all of which he lost in one cooler hand against HCL regular "Nik Airball" when he flopped top set against the nut straight. The best hand on the flop would hold up in the $872,000 pot, and "Buttonclickr" left the game before the stream concluded with a six-figure deficit. At the time, it was the biggest pot in Hustler Casino Live history.
