After summarizing last week's high stakes games, it stands clear that a Swede with the alias DIN_FRU grabbed the first place with almost $400,000 won. DIN_FRU is a very familiar face at Full Tilt Poker where he usually plays PLO and Omaha Hi/Lo against some of the world's best poker players.
But even though he's a well-known figure at Full Tilt many don't know that it's actually high stakes legend Erik Sagström who's hiding behind the alias. Erik Sagström has been quite anonymous lately when it comes to big cashes. Hopefully the top 1 spot on the previous week's biggest winner list will make him play even better and score higher.
Some info about Erik Sagström
Erik Sagström was born 1983 in Linköping, Sweden and he was accidentally introduced to poker when surfing the web. At the age of 17, he made his vey first deposit of $50 at the online poker site Paradise Poker. He lost the money almost straight away but decided to deposit again. After that he never looked back. Erik Sagström has won millions of dollars from playing poker online. Of course he has played live and scored sometimes as well, but it's from online poker he has built his fortune and made a name for himself.
