We have been intently following !p0krparty¡’s recent return to the plo games on Pokerstars. While I feel sure he is far from done, he has managed to reach the high stakes games in record time. In the !p0krparty¡ thread that was growing on the 2+2 forum last week, many posters noted that there was nothing exciting about railing mid stakes cash games. However, there is something fascinating about someone with no fear of losing money or sleep. !p0krparty¡ told us repeatedly in the chat box that he had no plans to quit, until he reached the top. Well he has made it now and we will watch to see how he fares this time around against the high stakes regulars. At one point he joked in the chat box that his goal was around $950,000, and he was not stopping until he got there. Ironically enough, he finds himself about a third of the way there, only one day into his high stakes attempt.
It was less than two weeks ago that we broke the news of his return, however a lot has happened in that time. It seems the only thing that has not happened is a break from the tables for !p0krparty¡. We have seen him play 50 hour sessions, moving up as many as 5 levels in stakes in the midst of one session. The beginning of this run saw !p0krparty¡ go virtually busto at the 1/2 games, leaving him with only $100 in his account. He made the most of it however, starting at the micro buy-in mtts. After winning enough to take a shot at the .5/1 games, he moved mostly to cash games. Since then, we have seen him consistently play 16-24 tables of 6 max plo games, moving up from .5/1 to the high stakes games he was playing yesterday. After a rough first shot at the 25/50 games, he dropped back down to rebuild at the 10/20 games. Yesterday, after getting his account back in the 200k area, he took another shot. This time, things went better, and after 10k hands at the 25/50 and 50/100 games, he had managed 130k in profits. This brings his account well over 300k, all of which we are likely to see in play today.
He has been relatively careful with his bankroll management, if you can believe that, moving down when his bankroll dropped below the 25-30 buy in mark, and usually taking his shots by short stacking the next level. It is incredible to think that this has not been a fluke, as we knew this was !p0krparty¡’s goal when he started this journey. It is just amazing to think that what is now over 300k, was only $100 ten days ago. We can only hope this run continues, and !p0krparty¡ soaks up the money from the high stakes pool, as he has from the mid stakes games on the way up.
Of course, we still don’t know for sure who is behind the account. However, you can follow him on twitter, as he is updating it as an anonymous poster.
