The persons behind the screen names

When the question about who is the poker player that have won most of all is raised the correct answer is probably Patrik Antonius. The Finnish player won most of his money between 2008 and 2011 on Full Tilt Poker. He moved later on to PokerStars and played under the alias “FindaGrind” and was highly successful once again. His total winnings online are estimated to around $17 million!

Among the other of the biggest online winners are names like Phil Ivey (a.k.a. "Polarazing" and "RaiseOnce"), Phil Galfond (a.k.a. "OMGClayAiken" and "MrSweets28"), Dan Cates (a.k.a. "jungleman12") and Brian Hastings (a.k.a. " LucLonely").

Sometimes a player gets lots of attention, but nobody knows who the person behind is. The most famous case is “Isildur1”. After a long time of speculation, it was finally official: “Isildur1” was the Swedish youngster Victor Blom.

When the politicians in Norway categorized poker as a game of luck which meant that poker online was illegal according to the gambling laws. Ola "Odd_Oddsen" Amundsgard who know better of the game, challenge one of the Norwegian politicians: if the he beat Amundsgard he would get one million Norwegian crowns – the politician actually accepted the challenge, but was defeated.

Another Norwegian, Annette Obrestad are among the best female online players. She made herself a name on Full Tilt Poker with the screen name “Anette_15” and especially after a video was posted online in which she win a tournament without seeing her own cards.
