WCOOP: ex-World Champion Greg Raymer places high in 2 events

Posted on 15 September 2010 by "T".

Greg "Fossilman" Raymer, the 2004 WSOP Main Event champ, has been doing very well so far in PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker. He ended up in 13th place in event #25 for $4,000 and made it all the way to the final table in event #27 where he got knocked out in 3rd place ($10,000). It will be interesting to see if any other big names will have as big success in 2010 WCOOP as Greg Raymer.

Greg Raymer info:

Gregory Raymer was born on June 25, 1964, in Minot, North Dakoto. Raymer first finished in the money of a WSOP event during 2001, and 3 years later he won the Main Event of 2004 WSOP ($5 million) and also finished in 25th place (out of 5,619 entrants) in the same event the year after. The list of Grey Raymer's cashes in other tournaments can be made long, however, as of 2010, his total live tournament winnings exceed $6,850,000 and most of these winnings have come from his places in the money at WSOP tournament events.

He's a class act...live or online it seems.

I think Greg Raymer is one of the most consistant players in the world. Heis a very good player, I dont know why he plays in tables with $30/60 BB. Anyway, he is goos at doing this, good form him he deserves it
 watoba20/09/2010 06:04:06 GMT
i think 30$/60$ Blinds are good money where u can life from and he not the risk as the other pros that he lost much money like gus hansen.I think thats a good management to play poker the rest of his life and he had all what he want

Yesterday i was watching some of pokerstars pro players at WCOOP and, sincerely, some of them plays like a potatoe. KidPoker (Daniel Negreanu) fastly went from 10,000 chips to 1,500 and Marcel Luske from 30,000 to 5,000, playing IMHO a poor poker. I think they are goods playing live poker because they read oppenents very well. But online .... they suffer.
It's not strange that a pro reach final table in such tournament because there are so many pros!

I have no personal experience watching them DaMessiah666 - but I'd find that easy enough to believe.. Live & online are two VERY different games.. The skill set required for each is pretty different and if you developed your talent live, I'd imagine you'd be a bit like a fish out of water playing online..

Obviously there's plenty of professionals who are proficient in both arts. But yeh, I definitely wouldn't be surprised to see some legends of the live game fail online.

Greg Raymer is by all means one of the most consistent players around. Seems like he does well in the WSOP year in and year out, and I have seen him play and finish well online as well. Online poker is a totally different experience than playing a live game. Most live players rely on reads, and when playing online pretty much all you have are betting patterns and previous hands. Nice to see Raymer still doing well. Since he won the Main Event I have thought of him as one of the best around.

So he's not a 1 hit wonder then....?
He has a no nonsense style, to that i mean you dont see him bluff that oftern do you...
He defo has a pro attitude and im sure he makes a good living out of it.
 SuperNoob23/10/2010 11:35:13 GMT
hes a solid consistent pro and his results prove that. but after winning the main event in 2004 hes not been playing much except wsop games, cos of his dispute against WPT.
