Scott Palmer wins $340,000 more from Richard Lyndaker

Thursday, 6 January 2011

Poker players aren’t renowned as an honest and consistent bunch, if we’re... er, honest. That’s why it’s no surprise that less than 48 hours after swearing off high stakes games, Richard Lyndaker (known best as nutsinho or Kpederson) took on Scott “URnotINdanger2” Palmer in another $200/$400 heads-up session.

He lost $343,000 to Palmer, adding to the $540,000 dropped in the same game to the same player not two days ago. Lyndaker wrote in his blog that he thought he had an edge over Palmer in heads-up NL but over $800,000 in several thousand hands is making a convincing argument otherwise.

Don’t worry about Lyndaker, though – with over $2m in winnings under the name “nutsinho” on PokerStars as well as being up over a million dollars between Full Tilt Poker and PokerStars since Christmas, the rent is probably getting paid even after this loss of the better part of a million dollars.
