XWINK – turning $4,000 into $2,000,000 in four days

XWINK – turning $4,000 into $2,000,000 in four days

Tuesday, 8 March 2011

You may remember in 2009 that a player known as XBLINK ran up $11 to several hundred thousand dollars in the space of a week after binking an $11 tournament. Now a player known as XWINK on Full Tilt Poker is competing against the likes of Patrik Antonius and Tom “durrrr” Dwan at nosebleeds on Full Tilt Poker.

The same user on Two Plus Two confirmed the usernames were not a coincidence and revealed that he had run up a $4,000 deposit at Full Tilt to over $2m in just four days. The 21-year-old Canadian said that he had achieved this “with excellent bankroll management skills” before admitting that he had lost $1.2m in a single day.

He has cashed out “around half a mil or something” so at least even if Dwan and Antonius claim his bankroll, he’ll have a souvenir. Well, five hundred thousand odd souvenirs.
