Online poker has blown up over the past few years and it is not going away anytime soon. Many of the well-known professionals are staying at home to play online poker rather than at the casino. On any given night you can see Phil Ivey, Mike Matusow, or Gus Hansen playing online poker at Full Tilt. Patrik Antonius who goes by the screen name of Luigi66369 dominates the high stakes cash games online. He will often sit with $ 60, 000 at the 300 / 600NL tables waiting for someone to challenge him. Usually Phil Ivey or some well known online pros will challenge Antonius heads-up for some cold hard cash. Antonius and Ivey have destroyed any competition that has moved up to them in the past months. Pots exceeded $ 100, 000 on the regular and they are only getting bigger.
John Juanda can also be found playing the 50/100 NL tables with a maximum buy-in of $ 10, 000. Juanda may be one of the most consistent players at the tables. He always appears to be up 20 to 30 grand by the end of the night. If you like drama, you can always stop bye and watch Mike "The Mouth" Matusow get up to his normal antics. Mike always talks to observers and will often tell his opponents how great he is at poker. Mike is known for showing huge $ 10, 000 bluffs on the river with seven high. Gus Hansen also makes regular appearances on the high limit Omaha tables. Online poker has brought the big game right onto your computer.
