"martonas" - no longer a winner

Tags: durrrr, full tilt poker, martonas, phil ivey, tom dwan.
Posted on 24 August 2009 by "T".

"Martonas", or "the unknown Swede" as many people call him, came from nowhere and played against some of the biggest names in the world of poker. After a week of playing he had already won 2.5 million dollars, most of the winnings from just one heads-up session versus Tom "durrr" Dwan. A few days later, Tom Dwan, got his revenge.

He won back everything he had lost to "martonas" plus some more before he decided to end the session and get some sleep. "Martonas", continued playing against Phil Ivey and other big names after this big loss. He won back a lot of money he had lost and it seemed like he would be back on track again shortly. But, the poker gods had other plans for the unknown Swede. "maratonas", can't get anything going at the moment and the winnings fail to come day after day. According to different sources he's now $1 million minus after just a few months of playing under the alias "martonas". Now the big question is. How much longer can "martonas" afford to play at the highest stakes at Full Tilt poker before the bankroll takes too much damage?

Looks like he lost the rest of his Full Tilt bankroll playing PLO 6max against Antonius, Juanda, Ziigmund and Urindanger.

He droped level by level, losing around 500k a day.
Dont think we have seen the last of him.
If he came out on top hed be the new great player LMFAO, but as he is losing he is now the FT donk.
I personally think he plays quite well and held his own, he was obviously the underdog and all PROs try to gun him down, a bit of luck and he will be back.

well, if he can afford to play in these stakes, i think he has plenty of money left, somehow i don't think he plays with all his money

I have seen him calling with King high in NL holdem like twice and calling with AA in a flush, straight draw board in Omaha, to me, he is not a good player...

I have seen him donk loads of money. I think he got lucky at start but now showing his real skills

One of two scenearies:
1st - martonas is a well known poker player with a good sponsor behind trying to make a new style of publicity in order to bring more new players to the game and speculate about high stakes pros real value;
2nd - martonas is a new player with more than enough money to spend without being worried about it, who as tryed poker for a few years and consider himself good enough to take some money out of sponsored pros pockets.
Now, whatever the case, i believe this novel will continue for a few more months, till someone one day comes to tv saying "yes it was me all the time"!

Fakiry id go for that.
I mean, iv seen "unknows" have a go at HS, but the very day he did it, it was on every poker site going.
More than what meets the eye here.
He could even be a bankrollmob member Big Smile
