The mystery of who is behind the “Judi Online” alias on Full Tilt Poker still hasn’t been solved yet, but here are a few things that we know for sure:
1. “martonas” will play anyone.
2. The best players in the world continue to line up to play “martonas”.
In the past few days, “martonas” has played epic matches against some of the best poker players in the world, including Tom “durrrr” Dwan, Phil Ivey and Patrik Antonius.
In the first half of August, “martonas” went on a serious run in the high stakes games on Full Tilt Poker, banking an impressive $2.4 million dollars over just 11,143 hands.
When “martonas” would sit, the tables would immediately fill up. His opponents did not seem to have much respect for his game. They smelled blood and were circling, waiting for the inevitable meltdown.
Tom “durrrr” Dwan took the step of actually depositing money onto Full Tilt Poker so that he could properly battle it out with “martonas”. According to “durrrr”, this was just his second deposit ever.
Dwan and “martonas” were soon involved in an epic heads-up $500/$1000 NLHE battle. Multiple tables of $500/$1000 NLHE were running at the same time, and there was millions of dollars on the table.
“martonas” quickly got the upper hand in the match, but Dwan came roaring back.
When all was said and done, Dwan had banked a $2 million dollar win.
Had “martonas” finally cracked?
Much to his credit, “martonas” continued to battle on. Dwan and “martonas” decided to play some $500/$1000 PLO, and “martonas” was able to win nearly a million dollars back. According to HighStakesDB.com, “martonas” had been down nearly $3 million dollars on the day before staging a late comeback.
So what do you do after having an epic battle against one of the best poker players in the world?
Most people would call it a day – however, “martonas” decided to keep playing.
“martonas” and Phil Ivey proceeded to battle it out in heads up PLO action, with “martonas” eventually booking a win of nearly $500k.
